Churchwide Hymn Sing and Reception Welcoming Chip and Marcie Handrich

Sunday, January 28
Hymn Sing 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. | Sanctuary
Reception 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. | Social Room

This church-wide hymn sing to welcome Chip and Marcie will be led by David Fulk, Bill Stilfield, and Ron Whited. They presented it at the Corbin Theatre in September. Enjoy choosing your favorite hymns played by Ron. Bill and David will also lead some hymn medleys in a jazz/gospel style for everyone to sing.

As a part of the afternoon reception, please bring notes of encouragement for Chip & Marcie to welcome them to our community. In addition, if you would also like to participate in ‘pounding’ the Handrichs, we ask that you consider providing gift cards to local grocery stores (e.g. Sprouts, HyVee, Aldi, Natural Grocers) so they can get to know which stores best meet their needs.

A great event to welcome Chip and Marcie. A wonderful event for a singing church!


Grammy Award-winning baritone Daniel Belcher

Grammy Award-winning baritone Daniel Belcher will be singing in worship January 21st at the 11:00 service. While he has sung more than 70 operatic roles in many of the world’s music capitals, he grew up in St. Joe, Mo. He majored in vocal performance at William Jewell and frequented the WJC Study Nights hosted at 2BC. He was graduated in 1992. He came to international attention in 2004 while singing in Paris. London’s The Guardian said Belcher was “possessing the kind of powerhouse stuff that indicates a star in the making.”  While performing around the world, Daniel makes his home in Liberty with his wife, Kathleen, and their daughter, Madeline.

You are invited to participate in the 3rd Annual Ministry Fair at 2BC. The Ministry Fair will provide a time for individuals to explore service opportunities at 2BC. We invite each ministry area to host a half-table to share information about their overall ministry and volunteer needs. The goal of this event is to provide a space for ministry leaders to make intentional connections with those seeking meaningful ways to engage in ministry. This is an excellent way to learn about the work of our church ministries. The Ministry Fair is part of a month-long focus on equipping.







Meets in the Social Room on the First Saturday of the month September through March at 8:30 a.m. In December, families are invited, and the Men's Breakfast is held at 8:00 at The Corner Cafe.

February 11 - April 15| 3:00 – 5:00 p.m. | Social Room | No meeting on Easter
