Pastor’s Letter

Dear Friends,

​Welcome to Church Online! We’re so glad you’ve found connection here.

#1 – Ways to Watch

If this is your first time with us, let me share four different platforms on which you can participate: 1) at, 2) through the free Bible Center Church app, 3) by the Facebook Live link on Bible Center’s Facebook page, 4) or through the Bible Center YouTube channel. All four have interactive capabilities, so our ministers would love to hear from and pray with you… even while the service is streaming!

#2 – Our Pandemic Response

Over the last two Sundays, I shared a 2-part message titled, “A Christian Response to the Coronavirus Pandemic.” It’s important that we’re all biblically equipped for such a time as this. You can listen to the past messages and stay up-to-date on our action steps here.

#3 – New Teaching Series

Today we begin a new 3-week series titled, “Epic Easter,” leading up to Resurrection Sunday on April 12.

With the world around us in chaos, what does Jesus invite us to believe? What are we to think, especially as Easter approaches? The Gospel of Mark holds the answer: Jesus is King, even when life doesn’t make sense!

Whether we phrase it as, “Jesus is Lord,” or “Jesus is in control,” the Gospel of Mark invites us to remember, especially in times like these, that there’s no reason to be paralyzed by fear. Christ has risen from the grave, conquered death once and for all, ascended back into heaven, and sovereignly reigns today over all things.

Journey with us through this series. Invite a friend to watch with you online. Each sermon, and each daily devotional, will shine Jesus’ hope on our doubts, fears, anxieties, and discouragements.

At the end, Jesus will invite us to make the decision for ourselves. Let’s pray that many recognize Him as Lord, even when the world around us doesn’t make sense. 

Thankful that Jesus knows and Jesus cares,

Matt Friend • Senior Pastor

Connect with a Group
If you are looking for connection in this time of social distancing and isolation, we are offering Zoom Groups… a place where group members can talk via the web/video conferencing tool, Zoom.

Presently, we are collecting contact information of those who are interested and hope to start virtual groups in the next two weeks. Please click here to let us know you’re interested!

Existing Groups
For those of you in Groups: We believe God is inviting us into new opportunities for belonging. Spiritual friends do what is necessary to take care of one another. Group leaders are actively thinking through the next steps for each group—very small groups for some and virtual groups for those who would like to stay in their homes. Leaders should be in touch with you soon.
