UPCOMING EVENTS

 

Experience Rooted | Starts September 2 | 6:30-8:30 pm

As Bonhomme continues to be a disciple–making church, we are excited to offer Rooted, a small group experience that will root you in the way of Jesus! Rooted is a 10–week small group experience that leans into seven rhythms to connect you with God, the church, and your purpose. The seven rhythms of Rooted are prayer, freedom from strongholds, serving the community, sacrificial generosity, sharing your story, and celebrating transformation! Rooted small groups will be available at different times and days, with all groups gathering three times over the course.
 
Our first Rooted experience starts September 2, 6:30–8:30 pm in Steffen Hall. Rooted is free and childcare is available. Click HERE to sign up for a class.  For more information, visit the Rooted table Sunday mornings in August.

Ways to Serve

 

Our Meal Ministry can Help

Did you know that Bonhomme has a Meal Ministry? Currently there are almost 50 homemade meals in the church freezer. Please help us deliver them to covenant partners or regular visitors who might need some home-cooked LOVE.
 
If you’d like to take a meal to someone, it’s easy! The meals are located on the middle row of the walk-in freezer in the kitchen next to Steffen Hall. Simply take a meal (or 2 if it’s for a bigger family) AND LOG your activity on the clipboard hanging on the left wall outside of the refrigerator doors. Please fill out the log completely so we can keep track of how many we are blessing. If you have any questions, contact Lisa Hartshorn.

Ministries

At Bonhomme, we are actively growing in faith, serving others and loving others as Jesus loved us.
