Berkshire Institute for Christian Studies News and Upcoming Events:
Many of you have had the opportunity to get to know the BICS Class of 2020. We are delighted to have our Hope Church family playing an integral role in the lives of our students and investing in their spiritual development - not only on Sundays, but through Koinonia Groups and through various service opportunities. We are also grateful that many of you participate in the DiscipleBuilder Scholarship program to help support our students. As we begin a new semester, there remain significant financial needs among the Class of 2020. If you have interest in helping to provide for some of those needs, please consider a gift to the DiscipleBuilder Scholarship Fund. You can find more information in one of our DiscipleBuilder brochures (available on the table in the lobby) or by speaking to Andy Rice (firstname.lastname@example.org
; 413-637-4673, ext. 101).
BICS Experience Day:
What BICS offers to young adults is far more than an academic program - it’s an experience. We often explain what we do through testimonials, brochures, and social media. But the best way for a student to understand the impact of a year with us is to see it with one’s own eyes. This is why we offer Experience Day - an opportunity to participate in life at BICS. Our next Experience Day is April 19-20, 2020
. Juniors and seniors in high school and others interested in checking out the BICS program are invited to attend. If you know of someone who may be interested in a year of adventure and growth at BICS, please let us know! More details can be found on our website at www.berkshireinstitute.org/experience
, or you can get in touch with Ben Boehm
