19 Why BCC has a Preschool with Cara Rigsbee

This week in a late Podcast (Stew was out of town) Stew sits down with Cara Rigsbee who is the director of our Precious Ones Learning Center (POLC) and they talk about some of the triumphs and struggles of POLC. They get into how POLC ministers to the whole family and not just watch kids and send them home. So if you didn’t know what POLC was or how it fits into the mission at BCC or if you thought they just clump all the kids together and make sure they don’t get hurt while their parents work, then this podcast is for you.

17 Mazatlán Mission Trip Part 1 – The Dads

In this BCC PodCast Stew sits down with Ben Guthrie and Ted Gatlin to discuss and tell stories of their trip to Mazatlán, Mexico in July. There were 4 dads total that went on the mission trip. Ted, Stew and Ben were all joined by a father and son team from Virginia, together they made up the “Dad’s” on the trip. Their perspectives were different from the students who pitched in on the trip, so we thought we’d share their stories first, then in a follow up podcast share with you the stories of the kids.

We will have a presentation and report for the whole church on Labor Day weekend September 1st, you won’t want to miss that either.

16 – Phil Corbell – Integrating discipleship into my everyday life

Phil Corbell sits down with Stew and unpacks how integrating discipleship into his everyday life changed how approaches people, his family, the place he works and even how he passes on the good news to people. Phil, a retired AF officer, has lived and worked in Beavercreek for the last 5 years. He and his wife Kristi have 4 awesome kids that make this journey so much better for them. If you wanna talk with Phil he’s not too hard to find, but if he you can’t find him look behind the soundboard on a Sunday, you might catch him there.

SERMON – On The Journey With You – Paul and Timothy

This week Stew Sheckler and Joel Baker brought us a message about disciple making. It was Joel’s first time preaching in the “main” service. Together they gave us a visual reference about what it means to be On The Journey together. Stew began mentoring Joel when he was in High School, now Joel is leading and discipling guys between Ohio and Michigan. Being on the journey together means we bring people along behind us who we can pass the good news on to because someone has done the same for us.
