Pastor’s Letter

Dear Bible Center family & friends,

Welcome back to church!

After a long quarantine, I’m thrilled that our physical campus has re-opened for in-person worship services. By way of reminder, here are the opportunities:


  • Thursday | 7 PM
  • Sunday | 9 AM
  • Sunday | 11 AM

*Weather permitting, attenders may also bring a chair and enjoy the service via loudspeaker and monitor in the north woods (in the natural grass-amphitheater beyond the picnic tables).

We understand that not everyone will be ready to return to the building; therefore, the following will still be available:


  • Sunday | 9 AM
  • Sunday | 11 AM
  • Sunday | Fox 11 TV at 11 AM

For those who are ready to return, please note the precautions we’re all trying to take, linked here.

If you have a chance, may I ask you to help me with an opportunity to encourage our Technical Arts team? Steven VanHorn and his team have gone exceedingly above and beyond to make our services, content, and group interactions available on multiple platforms throughout the quarantine. They’ve all given countless hours (day and night) to make sure we could still connect with Jesus and one another through the ministry of our church.

Feel free to drop a card in the mail for them or send a note of appreciation to (He’ll share with the whole team.)

Baking is above my paygrade, but I know for certain that Steven and his team love anything with a high chocolate and caloric content… assuming those arrangements can be made following the health precautions linked above. It’s possible they may also share with their Senior Pastor… in moderation, of course.

Much love,

Matt Friend • Senior Pastor
