The University of Alabama in Huntsville chapter of Baptist Campus Ministries (BCM)  is one of the Christian organizations on our campus. They hold a weekly worship service known as Celebration on Tuesday nights starting at 8:30PM at the BCM building located at 450 Sparkman Dr. NW, Huntsville, AL 35805. They also serve Thursday Lunch  for $2.50. The meal is provided by local churches and the proceeds go to mission projects, such as the BCM’s trip to Louisiana last year to help flood victims.

BCM will be sending members on two mission trips this year during Spring Break. One group will go to Phoenix, Arizona and the other group will go to New Orleans. BCM raises money for mission trips through several fundraisers. Their Annual Pie Auction will be held on April 11th, after BCM’s regular Celebration. The rules of the pie auction are simple. Members of the Leadership Team and BCM’s minister, Edwin Hocutt, bring a pie for the auction and people can place their bets on each pie. Then, the winner of the pie can either keep the pie or put it in the face of the person who brought it. All of the money raised goes to fund mission projects. Some pies sell for around $20 while others sell for closer to $300. People who bid can pool their money with other bidders to buy pies. Last year, $1470 was made from the pie auction alone. BCM will also hold its annual Rummage Sale on March 4th from 7:00 AM – 11:00 AM at BCM building. Items for the sale are donated by the community and all proceeds go to missions. Those who would like to donate items to the rummage sale can deliver items to the BCM building.

Those who would like more information on BCM can visit their Facebook, Instagram , and Twitter pages or attend one of their weekly celebrations.
