The Community Classroom

The Community Classroom exists in Shiremanstown so that the BBC congregation can reach into the lives of our neighbors, meet some of their tangible needs, build friendships with these families, and allow them to see the love of Jesus demonstrated through our lives. 

History of the TCC

The vision for a facility from which BBC could touch the lives of Shiremanstown community members has been on the hearts and minds of the congregation and leadership for many years. Planning for such a ministry began in the summer of 2015. In the fall of that year, the property adjacent to the church became available for sale. BBC enthusiastically raised the money necessary to purchase that lovely home, giving the Community Classroom a visible and convenient location in the center of the borough.  The Community Classroom is located next to the church at 205 West Main St. Shiremanstown.
