Welcome to the Blacksburg Presbyterian Church (BPC) website. At BPC we seek to recognize and nurture Christ in ourselves and in each person we encounter along the way. The church is a thriving community of believers, seekers, and lovers of the Word of God. BPC has a long tradition of outreach and service to the local and world community.
