Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Expanding Through Opportunities
What does “Expansion” mean for our priorities for the coming year?
BSLC leadership has identified four essential expansion opportunities for 2021.
Expanding Adult Faith Formation Ministry
We affirm that building and strengthening faith is a lifelong endeavor for each of us.
To strengthen our foundations of faith and support, we plan to invest in these initiatives:
Growing the strength and current number of our small groups
Energizing spiritual growth retreats
Expanding Bible studies, both in-person and online
The materials, venues, and equipment needed to support these initiatives is targeted in the range of $200 per week.
Expanding Child & Student Ministries
Preparing tomorrow’s church today requires building communities for the children.
Jesus said, “Go make disciples.” Beautiful Savior is connecting with younger people to help them grow in faith through:
new forms of Biblical life application
The materials, fees, scholarships and equipment needed to support these initiatives is targeted in the range of $230 per week.

So often, the grace of the Lord is experienced most directly in the giving and receiving of care, by members and nonmembers alike.
In the next year we will:

Explore new ways to connect people through technology
The equipment and expertise needed to support this critical ministry is targeted in the range of $100 per week.
