What to Expect at BAC
Dress in a casual relaxed way. Be yourself! There's no particular dress code to attend our Sunday Services.
A face covering is required.
Please register here and complete a short health questionnaire and confirm the attendance of you and your household members or people in your social bubble. Please let us know if anything changes between registration and the service on Sunday morning.
Please arrive early at the church early wearing a mask and reference the signs posted on the doors to ensure that it is safe for you to enter. You will be entering through the south double doors off the parking lot where you will be checked in by one of our volunteers based on your preregistered information. If there is a group already being checked in when you arrive, we’d ask that you please wait along the side of the building using the distancing markers along the curb. Once you are checked in, please use the hand sanitizer provided at various locations before heading into the auditorium.
If you are new to BAC fill out a blue Connections Card and drop it in the basket right outside of the Auditorium exit doors.
There are bathroom facilities available on the lower level in the event that you need them.
Activity packs will be available for children in the service as children’s programs will not yet be running.
For families with young children, the Welcome Hall will be available if you need to leave the service for any reason.
Kids Return to Worship FAQ
Our worship services take place in the Auditorium on the upper level. If you would like a paper bulletin - which provides an overview of the service, upcoming events and family news, you can pick it up on the table just outside the Auditorium doors. The bulletin can also be emailed to you in advance as an e-bulletin - ask to be added to our mailing list. As you enter, you will be greeted by an usher who will direct you to your seat. Alternate aisles are roped off for distancing, and please keep 3 seats between each household or social bubble.
The 60-75 minute service consists of announcements, a time of musical worship, prayer and a 25-30 minute message.
As a multi-generational church, we have a blended worship style that includes contemporary worship songs as well as hymns. During worship, you are welcome to participate as you feel comfortable – stand, sit, sing along or just listen.
Our messages are based on biblical truth with a relevant application for today’s world. Our Lead Pastor is the primary speaker, but our other pastoral staff do also preach, and occasionally we have guest speakers as well.
Once a month we serve the elements of Communion (bread & juice) in an individually pre-packaged format which you can pick up on your way into the Auditorium (a gluten free option is provided) and you are under no obligation to participate.
Our church family has a practice of giving charitable donations, an offering box is located just outside the Auditorium doors. If you are attending for the first time, or just checking out BAC, please know that there is no obligation to give – we are just happy you are here!
Once the service is over, please remember to keep socially distant from others as you exit. An usher will be available with an offering box at the exit door. We are able to mingle, inside masked and at a distance or outside. While outside in the parking lot or on the grassy areas around the building please wear your mask if you are closer than 6 feet from another person. We’re unable to provide coffee or refreshments at this time, but we can still connect with each other following the proper guidelines.
