Upcoming Events

Join us as we wrap up our summer with a great time of fun and fellowship at our annual church picnic!

You are invited to bring a side dish or dessert to share.  Drinks and a main course will be provided.  You are also welcome to bring a favorite lawn game.  A safe playground for children and sand volleyball court will provide lots of fun, too.


This year some folks from our new sister church east of Wausau, New Hope Community Church, will be joining us.  It will be a great way to build some new friendships with brothers and sisters in Christ.

When: Sunday August 25th at noon

Where: Riverside Park

1700 O'Day Street, Merrill

Small Group Seminar


We weren’t meant to do life alone. 


Attending Sunday morning worship, learning in Sunday School, and serving in a ministry are all great things, but a small group is different – in a good way. 


A small group is all about building trusting relationships with a handful of couples/singles/families from church who meet together regularly (usually in a home and at least twice a month) to mutually apply the truths of Scripture recently heard through a sermon or Bible study.  The goal of a small group gathering isn’t merely knowledge acquisition but deep, heart transformation.  It’s about helping one another gain a deeper appreciation for the gospel and letting it change us. 


Some other things that happen at small group gatherings: prayer, support, listening, admitting our struggles, asking for help, spiritual mentoring, fun, and service projects.


Want to find out more?


Join us in the BPC fellowship hall for a brief small group seminar right after worship on Sunday August 11th following a light lunch.  Come join us!
