Greetings in the Name of the Master Teacher, The Lord Jesus Christ,

We are delighted to invite you to attend the 76th Annual Session of the Baptist Educational Congress of the District of Columbia and Vicinity (BEC).  The Congress will convene May 6-10, 2019, at the First Baptist Church of Highland Park.  The church is located at 6801 Sheriff Road, Hyattsville, MD 20785.  Please enter the West Sanctuary or the Education Building on the lower parking lots.   

The BEC is excited to continue offering classes that support our theme, Christian Education Matters, 2 Timothy 3:16, 17.  We are offering a selection of classes for spiritual growth and everyday living for students of all ages.  The Class List with descriptions can be accessed by clicking the Class List button.  Please note that the Congress has a new registration fee of $35.00 per person. 

We have engaged in a partnership with Lancaster Bible College (LBC), Greenbelt, MD, to offer the eQuip course Excellence in Organizational Leadership.  eQuip is LBCs non-college credit continuing education program that focuses on biblical enrichment classes.  The course description is included on the Class List.  This is a 5-day course; the registration fee is $49 per person.  Ten (10) persons (not all from your church) must be registered for this course to be offered.
