OUR MISSION

JOINING IN GOD’S RESTORATION

OUR VISION

DEEPER IN CHRIST

Develop a specific pathway to spiritual growth, create a culture of discipleship through intentional relationships, invest in vibrant college and young adult ministries, building a team of leaders to participate in (youth, college, and young adult) ministries, and provide opportunities to make a commitment to Christ.

DARING TO SERVE

Create a servant culture, develop leaders and empower them to use their gifts to serve (one another, the church, and the world), partner with the city to restore community, meet the needs of students at Chico State and Butte College, provide opportunities for all generations to serve together, strategically identify the felt needs of the generations.

TOGETHER WITH JOY

Bridge the gap across the generations, encourage a culture of small and life-giving groups, build a community through celebration, provide a welcoming environment, and nurture our culture by equipping families.

CHURCH LIFE

JOIN A LIFE GROUP

Life is not meant to be lived alone. God created you as a relational being, meant to experience life with other people.  That’s why at Bidwell Presbyterian we encourage you to join a smaller community where you can be yourself and grow in your walk with God.

Groups come in all shapes and sizes – married couples, singles, men, women, kids, no kids, workplace, young adult, senior – the list goes on.  No matter where you are in life, there’s a group for you.

If you are already a current Life Group leader, you can check out our growing resource library by clicking the button below. Or if you are interested in joining a Life Group, click below to contact our Life Group Coordinator.

BPC VOLUNTEERS

DARING TO SERVE

You, the volunteers, are a rich and essential part of Bidwell Pres. By daring to serve, you not only create opportunities for others to feel the love of Jesus but reap blessings by investing your time into the opportunities God has given us. We celebrate everything you do in your good works and your calling. 

If you have been wondering about becoming a volunteer and getting involved, we invite you to know that God does not call the qualified to serve, (1 Corinthians 1:27-29), but instead qualifies the ones he has called. Our excuses of “I don’t have time,” “I don’t know what I would do,” “I don’t have any special skills,” “I’m not needed,” are excuses that God wants to release us from. BPC, the body of Christ, and the world have need of you because you are a child of God!

Volunteer Opportunities can be found on our ministry pages, to help you understand the needs of the ministry and know where you would like to help. Look for opportunities to serve in our Hospitality Ministry, Care Ministries, or take part in our Missions to be the head, heart, and hands of Jesus.

Let us know what you’re interested in, and we will direct your inquiry to the right place.

MISSION PARTNERS

JOIN IN LOCAL AND WORLDWIDE MISSIONS

Missions begin with you. Paul tells us, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here,” (2 Corinthians 5:17). Your own life becomes the vessel that God uses for missions and good work; he started this work, he continues it, and he even works through it. You are the ambassador that brings the message of hope. He invites you to join in His powerful, life-giving movement of restoring the world to His design.
