Dear Friend:

Thank you for your incredible generosity in supporting the ministries and mission at Bidwell.  You have blessed the transformational work of Christ’s ministry here beyond measure.  The testimonies we have received the last few Sundays in worship bear witness to the movement of Christ in people’s lives, and I am so grateful for those who have shared their journey of faith.  

In these last days of June, our church is seeking to finish the 2016/17 fiscal year with a balanced budget and secure solid footing to fulfill our vision and strategic goals for 2017/18.* To meet these objectives, we need $104,000 by June 30.   Can you help us meet this goal?  You can offer your gift of generosity by cash, check or giving online.   The church office is open from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM Wednesday and Thursday and from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM on Friday.  

*2017/18 strategic goals and vision:

 -   Host an all-church, 10-week Alpha course in the fall, focusing on the Gospel in weekly small groups.
 -   Minister throughout town on Sunday, September 17 through Serve Chico projects.
 -   Celebrate BPC’s 150th Anniversary throughout our city.
 -   Relaunch our small groups, starting by hiring a small group coordinator.
 -   Invest in discipleship and missions by hiring a pastor for missions and adult discipleship.
 -   Expand our multi-media efforts through video devotionals.
 -   Maintain current ministries and missions at Bidwell that touch people of all ages.
