2017 Summer Events at Bible Fellowship Church of Newark, DE

The following is just a taste of things that are going on this summer at BFCN in Newark, Delaware.  Join us for fun, fellowship, and new friendships!  Stay tuned as this page is updated in the following weeks…

For Sundays during the summer (beginning July 2nd), there will be no children or adult SS/Discipleship Classes. We will once again provide Philly soft pretzels, coffee, tea, and lemonade in the Frisbie Center. The Elders urge the 8:30 folks to remain for “Linger” and the 11:00 folks to come early so that we can visit and share together as a church family.
