Connection Center

Our online connection center is our way of describing everything that is available for you and your family to serve and grow in faith. We're a vibrant church with God-centered ministries and Jesus-loving people. That means we are active, enthusiastic and enjoy spending time with one another, living out the Bible. From Sunday school classes to small groups, children and student events, volunteer opportunities and everything in between you can find it here.

During this session, children two years old by July 31, 2016 through Kindergarten (2016-2017 school year) will meet in the Blue Room.
 

Elementary school aged children will meet in the Grow and Go Zone. (We advance classes in the fall) Please take children directly to their classroom area for check-in as the Children's Welcome Desk will not be staffed.

"For Better or for Kids" book discussion, room 3205. The transition from married to married with children can be tough. The challenges that come with parenthood can make the "for better or for worse" promise a hard one to honor. Whether you are a new or a seasoned parent, this class is for you!

Preschool & KDO Summer Play 

The Bonhomme Preschool and Kids Day Out Summer Play program provides an opportunity for children (ages six months through those who have completed kindergarten) to explore fun topics in a learn-through-play setting.  A typical day might include books and stories, creative art projects, music and movement, and interactive learning experiences. It is a wonderful way to re-connect with friends over the long summer months or make new friends before school starts again in the fall.

Ongoing Volunteer Needs, Prayers and Updates

 
 
 

Bonhomme Campus Needs Gardeners

At Bonhomme, certain parts of our beautiful campus are carefully maintained by dedicated volunteers. That is true for many of the "common" landscaped areas around the parking lots and buildings. The Buildings & Grounds team is in critical need of an individual or individuals who would like to serve.
 
The raised bed in the playground needs a caretaker who is a little athletic and careful where feet are placed. Easiest access is via an adjacent bench. Main need is for occasional weeding. Bed contains tall arborvitae, variegated boxwood, Prunella, very small boxwood, Plumbago, Stokesia, Sea Holly, variegated Liriope, a few bulbs surfacing in summer, and a few crocus in corners along with Blue-eyed Grass 'Lucerne' ...all easy care really; and bed has been treated with a pre-emergent. A turtle, frog with umbrella, and sleeping puppy show up in the summer, as well. We need to avoid maintenance
times when children are in the playground; so best times for weeding are before 9 a.m. and after 3 p.m. weekdays and anytime on Saturdays or Sunday afternoons.
 
 
If you would like to lend your green thumb, please contact Joan Kilby 314-469-3164 or John Green 314-808-5101.
