Huckleberrys-My-Dads-Pancakes---Photo-Credit---.originalIt’s a tradition.  Around 8:30, 9ish on Monday, Sept. 18th,  we gather for pancakes after Lee University’s Convocation.  Normal Bible study is suspended…cause we want to encourage all of you to be a part of convocation!

So.  Here’s what it looks like:

Lots of pancakes.  Lots of syrup.  Lots of chocolate chips.  Lots of blueberries.  Lots of sausage and OJ.  And lots of fun with your people.  We play games well into the night and just enjoy being together.  Sign-ups will also be out for Family Promise Week and Fall Retreat!!

So, grab your friends and head on over to the BCM for Late Night Pancakes!!  Oh.  The best part.  It’s all free.

Coming Up…Back To School Beach Trip!

The tradition continues!  BCM is heading back to Destin, Florida for a relaxing few days at the beach before the realities of the fall semester sink in.  And you’re gonna love this beach house.  It’s in the Hollywood Community of Frangista Beach, Destin.  We’ve got our own HUGE private pool, steps to the beach, and it’s just really nice all around.

We’ll be hanging out in the ocean, playing on the beach, watching movies and of course playing spike ball in the sand!  You don’t want to miss out on enjoying the company of your (new or old) BCM family.  And on Friday, we all help new Lee students move into the dorms….yep, that’s part of the deal…but it’s a ton of fun too.  And you’ll be able to show off your nice new tan.
