Our Mission

“The Board of Cooperative Ministries (BCM) engages and supports congregations and RCCs in their ministries as together we grow in faith, love and hope, following Jesus in serving the world.” 

 

We serve individuals, families, classes and small groups, congregations, and RCCs, as well as pastors, lay leaders, church educators and other professional staff. We offer:

  • Coaching, consulting, and training in leadership & board development, technology and social media, asset mapping, stewardship, faith formation, Moravian heritage/theology and much more;
  • A place for social ministry groups to convene and take action in areas like multicultural ministries, poverty, environmental stewardship, and others;
  • Hands-on youth, college and young adult ministry support and programming; and
  • Insightful books, videos, and easy-to-use curriculum at our Resource Center.

Third Sunday after the Epiphany

Watchword for the Week — Trust in him at all times, pour out your heart before him; God is a refuge for us. Psalm 62:8

Sunday, January 21 — Jonah 3:1–5,10; Psalm 62:5–12
1 Corinthians 7:29–31; Mark 1:14–20

I give thanks to your name for your steadfast love and your faithfulness; for you have exalted your name and your word above everything. Psalm 138:2

Jesus prays: “I made your name known to them, and I will make it known, so that the love with which you have loved me may be in them, and I in them.” John 17:26

Blessed Redeemer, on this holy day may our worship of you spill out of the sanctuary and into every aspect of our lives. May all that we do give testimony to your unifying love. In Christ’s name we pray. Amen.
