Mission: Serving God Through – Self, Church, and Community and Always Being Faithful
- By maintaining our body, we are better able to physically serve.
- By finding ways to be involved at church, we can serve God by helping one another
- By reaching outside the walls of our church, we can serve our community and world
Maintaining a strong body prepares us to better serve God. “Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
BFC Classes Information – We’ve gone totally virtual!

When the pandemic began in March 2020 within two weeks the entire BFC Exercise program went virtual with all classes moving to Zoom. For over a year we have continued to have Fun, Fellowship, Food and Fitness all while keeping participants safe at home. The BFC Instructors have gotten creative designing classes using common household items like water bottles, soup cans, and paper plates for those who don’t have exercise equipment at home, and we’ve even added a new class, Flexibility for a Better YOU to offer a time devoted totally to stress relief and relaxation during this challenging time.
All virtual classrooms open ten minutes before class and stay open ten minutes after class to allow participants to chat. We’ve even celebrated the holidays and class anniversaries on-line!
Please email [Beth Curry – [email protected] ] for more information and for the class links.
