New to the area? Finding a new church? Or, just visiting? We understand that going to a new church can be intimidating and difficult- whether you are new to the area, reconnecting or just visiting. We hope that the following will help you out and ease your stress a little! We’re just glad you’re here!
When are services?
9:00AM- Traditional service. This is a service with organ, hymnal and choir (during the school year). There are times where we have special music either from guests or from some of our talented church members.
11:00AM- Contemporary service. This is a relatively informal worship service with modern music led by our praise band teams with lyrics projected on a screen.
What Should I Wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. We are just happy that you are joining us for worship! We want you to be able to focus on worship rather than what you are wearing. During the summertime, it is common for parishioners to wear shorts and t-shirts. Of course, you can wear your “Sunday Best” if you so choose to.
If you’re curious, our 9am traditional service tends to be more formal and our 11am Contemporary service more casual.
Where Are We Located?
We’re located at 1200 Middle Rd. in Bettendorf, IA. We’re on the Northeast corner of I-74 and Middle Rd. Here’s a map: link
Where Do My Children Go?
Children are always welcome to participate in the worship service. In fact, we always have a Children’s Message time in both our 9:00AM and 11:00AM services. We also have children’s activity bags available, which have different activities for your children (these are located next to the main sanctuary doors). We understand that little ones can get bored or antsy during services, so we do offer child care during both services if you would like to use it. The nursery is located downstairs- if you need help, just ask one of the ushers and someone will gladly show you the way!
We offer Sunday school for kids ages preK-12th grade during the 10am hour.
I Have Hearing Problems. Is There Hearing Assistance?
Yes! For those that need assistance due to impaired hearing, we have special hearing devices that you can pick up. Just let an usher know you would like one.
Am I expected to put money in the offering?
We’re more concerned about your heart than your checkbook. It’s totally up to you if you wish to give. At the 9am service we do “pass the plates”, and if you would rather not give simply pass the plate on. During the 11am service we do not collect a formal offering, but rather have a brass bucket in the sanctuary available to place your offering if you wish to do so.
Should you choose to become a member of BPC we would love for you to prayerfully consider giving to the church to further our ministry and mission.
What is a BPC Service Like?
Each week we’ll share in singing songs of praise, pray together, read scripture together and listen to a great sermon. Communion is served the first Sunday of each month.
We strive to have passionate engagement and provide a meaningful worship experience at BPC. We value…
Jesus: It is through Christ that we come to know God. We have our hope and our salvation in Him. Everything we do in worship and in mission is focused on honoring and serving our Lord, Jesus Christ.
Relevance: We actively seek to reach and meet needs across generations.
