We are a voluntary Employee Association that promotes a non-sectarian Christian community, expression of faith in Jesus, Bible discussions, and ordinary prayer. Our camaraderie depends upon a healthy understanding of our sins, a rational trust in the Bible, a willingness to lead a more holy life, and an ongoing relationship with God.

Access requires DOE badge. The groups study, enjoy discussions, give thanks, and pray. We have had videos and speakers. Help spread the word. We do not replace church nor require religious affiliation. The groups promote ordinary traditional Christian faith in the work world. This was the foresight of the founding employees (David W Thompson, et al) in 1967 and continues to be a radical concept.


The BSG board meets quarterly (sometimes), which includes a representative from each study and event committee.
