Publicity Tools & Deadlines

Before you publicize your event, meeting or gathering, you must FIRST fill out the BCC Ministry Room & Calendar Request Form, and get approval/confirmation from the Church Office. Please send the Room and Calendar Request form via an e-mail attachment to Wendy or by turning it in to the Church Office Mail Box slot to get approval. Thank you!

After you have received approval of your event, please print and fill out the BCC Ministry PUBLICITY Request Form and submit your request to Becky via an e-mail attachment or by placing it in the Church Office Mail Box slot.

DISCLOSURE: Due to a variety of factors, the Church Staff may not be able to fulfill your request(s) but will do their best to communicate to you the reasons and the possible alternative options that are available.

Below are publicity options for your event, meeting or gathering:

The Connection (Recommended)

To have an announcement for a ministry event, meeting, or gathering in our monthly newsletter, The Connection, the deadline is the 15th of each month, prior to the date you want your event publicized. (Example: March 15th for an April event)

Sunday Bulletin

To have a brief and concise announcement for a ministry event, meeting, or gathering in the weekly Sunday Bulletin, the deadline is 12:00 Noon on Wednesday every week. We recommend promoting the 2 weeks prior to the beginning/date of your ministry opportunity, and may only be able to run one Sunday due to limited space.

Pre-Sunday Service PowerPoint Slide

To have a brief and concise PowerPoint slide for a ministry event, meeting, or gathering on a Sunday morning as part of our worship services, the deadline is 12:00 Noon on the Monday that is at least 3 weeks before the Sunday you would like the information communicated (ex. You want a pre-service slide on Oct. 30th, so you submit request on Monday, October 10th).

Church Web Site

To have any written information or media components (picture/video) for a ministry event, meeting, or gathering that you want to communicate on a specific web site page, the recommended deadline is at least 4 weeks before the beginning/date of your scheduled event. At least twice a week the church web site is updated, so there is some flexibility with this deadline.

Church Calendar

To have a ministry event, meeting, or gathering on the church calendar (whether on church grounds or off-site), the recommended deadline is at least 4 weeks before the beginning/date of your scheduled event.

Church Facebook Group

To have any written information or media components (picture/video) for a ministry event, meeting, or gathering that you want to communicate on our church Facebook group page, the recommended deadline is at least 2 weeks before the beginning/date of your scheduled event. Once a week the church Facebook group is updated, so we encourage you to submit your request by 12:00 Noon on Thursday.

Other Options

This includes using the Welcome Center Sign-Up Counters, posters on church bulletinboards, etc. To utilize these others options for a ministry event, meeting, or gathering that you want to communicate to the church congregation, the recommended deadline is at least 2 weeks before the beginning/date of your scheduled event. Depending on the "other" option you want to use, there is some flexibility on the deadline. To discuss these options and deadline flexibility, please contact the Church Office via e-mail or by calling 763-682-1470.

For personal, non-profits, civic, or business publicity requests, please contact the Church Office via e-mail or by calling 763-682-1470 to discuss the options available.
