The English word “minister” comes from the Latin (not the Greek) translation of various biblical words (Hebrew and Greek) that mean “to serve” (verb) or “servant” (noun). The most familiar passage using it is Matthew 20:28 “the Son of Man came not to be served (not to be ministered unto), but to serve (to minister)”.

We serve each other, our church community, and our local community in many ways. There are so many things that need to be done. We’ve organized the various tasks into groups we call “ministries.”

You get a great sense of belonging, and sometimes humility, when you serve others, and a great sense of caring when others serve you.

You don’t need to be a member of the church to participate in a ministry.

“How do I get hooked up? Where will I fit? Where am I needed?”

Are you overwhelmed by the many activities at BBC and you just don’t know where you fit in?

Do you want to volunteer, find new friends, make a difference, but don’t know where to start?

Or are you new to BBC and need to be connected? As a not-yet member you can participate in most areas of our church life.

We have a Coordinator of Volunteer Services, who will help you in your journey at BBC by assisting you in finding the ministry that fits your gifts.

Stop by the Welcome Center on Sunday, or just call the church office, 508-896-3381, to be in touch with the Coordinator.
