In total, a worship service is about 60 minutes in length. Each service focuses on glorifying Jesus and both services are united under the same message from Pastor Paul.
Contemporary Worship starts at 8:45. This service begins with the band leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. During the opening music portion of service, there will be a time of greeting and announcements. The worship leader will direct the congregation on what to do during this time. After the opening music portion of service, our pastor will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus. Following his message the band will lead us in a song while we collect the morning offering and then we close with a final song of response. Dress for this service is everyday casual and jeans are a common sight. You are welcome to come as you are.
Immediately Following contemporary worship join us for a time of fellowship including coffee and refreshments in the fellowship hall.
Traditional Worship starts at 11:00. This service begins with a prelude and call to worship. During this service you'll find the choir leading the church in music - song lyrics are projected onto the screens so you can sing along and/or engage with worship however you feel most comfortable. After the opening music portion of service, there will be a time of greeting and announcements. Then, the liturgist shares a Bible reading followed by a choir anthem. After that, our pastor will share an encouraging and hope-filled message about Jesus. Following his message the morning offering is received and we close out with a hymn and choral postlude. Dress for this service usually ranges from business casual to "Sunday best" but you are welcome to come as you are.
No matter which service you choose, Sundays at BHPC are exciting and friendly. Come as you are and expect to feel welcomed as our guest.
We believe that kids should have a blast at church every single week - and at BHPC, we make this a priority. The other thing we make a priority is your children’s safety. Because of that, we have a detailed check-in process for our Children's Church program the first time that you visit. You’ll want to leave yourself an extra ten minutes to get signed in. Children's Church is offered for kids ages three (potty trained) through Grade 5.
At this time this check-in process is only in place at the Contemporary Service. Children attending the Traditional Service are led to Children's Church by our Children's Ministry Director following the children's sermon.
