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.

TBC participates in the Judy Midkiff First Fruits program. This program provided fruit to children that may have food insecurity. The church collects fruit and donations certain times of the year for Elizabeth Scott elementary school. The fruit is placed in the backpacks for children to take home to eat on the weekend. This program is on hold for the fall/winter.
We are partnering with Swift Creek Elementary to bless the staff and students. You can volunteer in the school, "adopt" a staff member, and help raise money for special needs students. Reaching out to our community in love and blessing them brings back blessings 10 fold. Get on board! Contact the church office for information on how you can join this partnership.
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 2023 dates!
