Short Term Mission Opportunity to Mazatlan, Mexico This Summer!
BCC has been partnering with a church in Mazatlan, Mexico for the past several years. The church is  now in the process of planting their 2nd Group. We have helped them in the past years with medical clinics, VBS and some construction projects. Late this summer we have an opportunity to go and join them again in reaching a village with the Good News of our Lord. We will do this by training the body with a combination of Conversational EV, T4T, and 2 by 2 teaching. If the Spirit leads you to join us, the dates of the trip are Aug 8th-15th and the cost is $700 plus airfare (which is $560 from Asheville today). For more info contact Alan Perry at alan@brevardcommunity.org or Shannon Compton @ shannon@brevardcommunity.org.

Father & Son Retreat Coming Up This Summer! 
Calling all fathers and sons (ages 8-13)! We are having a Father & Son retreat on Friday, August 23rd - Sunday, the 25th at Look Up Lodge near Traveler's Rest, SC. This is going to be an incredible time of fun and adventure, but more importantly, an experience to coach and encourage dads to be the spiritual leaders of their sons. This is more than just a weekend away - there will be studies before-hand with the fathers to prepare them for father/son interactions to happen well beyond the retreat. Cost is $119 per person, but in order to secure the event location, we need a deposit of $119 per father/son pair by THIS FRIDAY, MAY 17th. Sign up in the Welcome Center! If you have any questions, contact Chris at chris@brevardcommunity.org.
