Even though much of life looks different than it usually does due to the pandemic, the BSM is still committed to developing lifelong followers of Christ. The BSM is not about only gathering together physically. Scattering God's people is a key component for the spread of the gospel! We want students to engage with the gospel, grow in Christ, and go proclaim Him to the world.
We are excited to have the opportunity to meet in person this fall semester and we hope you'll come join us at one of our gatherings. We'll be taking wise steps to do our best to take care of the group and love our neighbors while we are together.
Reminders For You
- God is still on His throne. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8) God is in control when we feel like things are falling apart, and we can trust Him. In Christ, God gives us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control. (2 Timothy 1:7) Christians believe in a God who is loving and unchanging, and has the way to fix the brokenness we experience in the world because of our rebellion against Him.

- The gospel call has not changed. Jesus said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:18-20) Social distancing is physical, and doesn't mean relational distancing- reach out to people! There are so many ways to do this. Find ways to stay connected and encourage one another.
- We are here for you. The BSM staff loves you! If you need someone to talk to, we are here to listen and share truth. Want us to pray for you? Share with us how!
- Don't live in fear. This means don't buy into hysteria, don't believe everything you hear, and don't spend all your time scrolling social media! Go outside. Read a book. Take a walk. And if you want to see reliable sources with advisable measures to take, you can check out the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the World Health Organization. It is wise to take certain actions (please wash your hands!) but not to succumb to anxiety and panic.
