Details

Fall family activities are abounding at BCH. We would like to invite you to participate in the fun and meaningful event series meant to bless your family. View the details below for Trunk or Treat, Crafts Extravaganza, and our Guest Presentations. Registering for our Guest Presentations will help us with a headcount for our premium meals.

Oct. 31 - Trunk or Treat

5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Candy, cookies, dress-up, games - need we say more? Our parking lot will be packed with goodies and activities. Registration is not required for Trunk or Treat, just show up!

Nov. 6 - Crafts Extravaganza, Pizza, and Student Success

6:00 pm - 6:30 pm Crafts Extravaganza & Pizza
We have eight age-appropriate winter crafts for your kids to construct during our 30-minute craft fair. Our craft guides are bringing their A-games so your kids fall in love with these minimal-mess DIY projects. Best of all, these crafts are free and you'll walk away with craft kits for them to repeat at home.

Check kids into their programming or bring them to the guest presentations. Be sure to grab a plate of pizza and a drink.

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Guest Presentations
Dialogue alongside community experts, church leaders, and parents from around our community on some of the most difficult issues facing our kids and youth today. We will be giving away some of our presenters' favorite parenting resources.

Teresa Tiffee - How to get kids to actually do their homework. Teresa is the founder and director of the Student Life Center (SLC), an after school tutoring program that has helped more than a hundred Klamath Falls students turn their study habits around. Several SLC students have gone from at risk of dropping out to being on the honor roll.

Kim Dunaway - Student success strategies from a teacher. Kim has been a teacher for thirteen years and currently serves at Pelican Elementary. She is also a mom and stepmom to four, ages 3-15, whom she credits for making her a better, more well-rounded teacher. Kim will be giving away five copies of Parenting with Love and Logic by Foster Cline.

Kelley Fritz - The Growth Mindset. When students believe they can get smarter, they understand that effort makes them stronger. Therefore they put in extra time and effort, and that leads to higher achievement. Kelley has served as an educator and administrator for several years and is currently the principal at Ferguson Elementary. As an administrator and parent, she understands what it takes to shape kids' beliefs about themselves. Kelley will be giving away five copies of Mindsets for Parents: Strategies to Encourage Growth Mindsets in Kids by Mary Cay Ricci.

Nov. 13 - Tri-tip and Family Communication Strategies

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Guest Presentations
(Note: meals are ready approximately 15 minutes before Guest Presentations; eating during the presentations is welcomed. Are you ready to try our Jimmy's tri-tip that's slow-smoked all day? You won't want to miss this meal.)

Joanna Williams - Important discussions about alcohol. Did you know that kids sometimes start drinking as young as eight years old? Joanna is a Level Two certified drug & alcohol counselor and substance abuse prevention specialist with over 15 years of experience working in both residential and outpatient treatment programs in California and Oregon and teaching elementary and high school students. She has a passion for seeing individuals break free from addiction and currently serves at Klamath Basin Behavioral Health (KBBH) as the supervisor of their SUDS Outpatient Treatment Department.

Mark McClure - Recognizing anxiety and depression in your children. Mark is a licensed counselor and chaplain for the Army National Guard and is passionate about helping humans thrive. He is also a parent of three (ages 2, 6, and 9) and runs a local counseling practice. Mark will be giving away five copies of 1-2-3 Magic: 3-Step Discipline for Calm, Effective, and Happy Parenting by Thomas Phelan.

Nov. 20 - Fried Chicken, Bullying, & the Gospel

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm Guest Presentations
(Note: meals are ready approximately 15 minutes before Guest Presentations; eating during the presentations is welcomed.)

Presenter TBA - Is your child being bullied? How would you know. This presentation on identifying and dealing with bullying comes from Citizens for Safe Schools.

Paul Tiffee - Does God have the power to help my family? Has your family ever had the opportunity to know what it means to have a relationship with Christ? You will hear from Paul and other parents about how God has helped them. Paul has fulfilled a call in ministry leadership for over 20 years and is a parent and step-parent of two adult children, four grandchildren, and two fur-kids. He currently serves as the lead pastor of Baptist Church on Homedale.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are you doing this?

Our church and lead pastor, Paul Tiffee, are passionate about being the best church for our community. We believe serving our community is a great way to connect people with God who loves them.

I see these are church events. Are you going to shove Jesus down my throat?

We would love to introduce you to Christ and we believe the principles Jesus teaches will help families succeed but religion or the Bible will not be the focus during most of the presentations. We will have a leader pray to open our Guest Presentations. Our last evening will include a presentation about God with a no-pressure, private opportunity to invite God to be a part of your life. If you want information on starting a relationship with God, there will be people available to meet with outside of the event time.

What are the Guest Presentations all about?

We know that parenting comes with many challenges and would love to share the resources that have helped some of our parents succeed. We will have three 90-minute Guest Presentation sessions that meet on Wed. Nov. 6, 13, and 20, 2019, at BCH. Our presenters will be addressing student success, anxiety & depression, drug & alcohol use, bullying, and more. Each session has a Q&A panel. Childcare, kids & youth programming, refreshments, and dinner will be provided. Our presentation launch night starts with a kids' crafts fair directly before the presentations.

Are you only presenting a Christian point of view?

Simply put, probably. Several (but not all) of our presenters are Christian. Some work in Christian settings and some work in secular fields. It also happens that the principles that Jesus teaches happen to be successful strategies for life.

Do I have to go to all events?

You may attend as few or many events as you like. Registering for our Guest Presentations helps us get a headcount for our delicious meals.

Can I bring my kids?

There is childcare and programming available for all ages. Nursery (0-3), Little Disciples (4-6th grade), Logos Youth (7th-12th). Your kids are also welcome to attend the Guest Presentations if you prefer (but that might be giving away some of our presenters' insider tips to your kids).

This event description is subject to change as we adhere closely to God's agenda and direction for our organization.
