We desire to be a people who are known for the way they care for others and extend the love of Christ to our community. Because we follow Jesus, living on mission to bring righteousness and justice is one of our main goals. As a result, we are involved in our community in many different ways. Several ways we are serving on mission are listed below.
One of the ways we support our community is by participating in a program that feeds those who are in need. On weekends, it is difficult for individuals who are food insecure to find the support of programs that run through weekdays. We partner with a group on Chicago Street to support individuals on the fifth Sunday of the month, or four times a year.
Our group gathers at 9:30 a.m. to create and pack meals, then drives to Chicago Street to distribute the food and minister to individuals in need of a meal.
We have recently established a partnership with Providence Elementary and are now supporting students in need with school supplies, both for back-to-school and throughout the year. Want to be a part? Drop off new school supplies anytime, and we will be sure they get to our friends at Providence!
Several time a year, TBC heads out to serve the community as an entire church. Love may come in the form of "blessing bags" for the homeless, a new wheelchair ramp for a family in need, replacing or fixing an AC unit, or taking care of yard work for a member of the community. No need is too great or too small, no helper is too young or too old, and no family is beyond the love of Christ.
Be on the lookout for 2020 dates!
