Support Isaiah 58 | Donate Canned Pineapple until Nov. 8

 
Isaiah 58 Ministries is collecting a special Thanksgiving donation of canned pineapple to be included in Thanksgiving meals. Bonhomme has been asked to collect 200 cans of pineapple by November 8. Any type of pineapple (slices, crushed, chunks.) It should be packed in its own juice.
 
Please leave your pineapple donation in a separate bag from other donations, and leave it in the Isaiah 58 bin in Kilby Commons.

Women’s Bible Study | Thursday Mornings

 
Join us on Thursday mornings, beginning September 9, 9:30-11:30 am for Women’s Bible Study where Priscilla Shirer will guide us through her newest study Elijah! Using video sessions, homework and discussion, we will see how God used challenges and opportunities in the prophet Elijah to strengthen his faith, character and boldness. Our goal is to gain great biblical knowledge, to reflect on how God is working in our lives and to be encouraged by Christian fellowship. We look forward to seeing you September 9!
 
Childcare is available by calling the Church Office, 636.532.3486 or email Jennifer Fee, jfee@bonpres.org.

Join MOPS on the first and third Tuesdays, 9:15am–11am.

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.
