REACHING OUT INTO THE COMMUNITY
We believe the church exists not simply for its own sake, but to be the hands and feet of Christ in the world. At Brookhaven Christian Church, we have identified ministry partners in our local community and established a two way connection with them to discover what is most needed and to work together in meeting those needs.
BCC's Outreach opportunities typically rotate on a monthly basis, offering different ways to participate: from hands-on projects to contributions of goods, services, and financial resources. We invite you to join with us as we live out our mission to "Connect - Serve - Grow."
Ongoing Outreach Project:
October Outreach Project:
Our October outreach focus will be on Suthers Center for Christian Outreach, which is currently operating as a Saturday morning drive-up food pantry and emergency assistance serving Dekalb County. Members, friends, and the community are invited to participate in a drive to help stock Suthers Center with selected hygiene items and some specific non-perishable food items that will be distributed during the holidays. (See list below.) Bring your donations to the table inside the church entrance or to the BCC Pumpkin Patch during open hours. In addition, financial gifts may be made through Givelify, the BCC website, or by mailing a check to the church (be sure to indicate your gift is for Suthers Center). A percentage of the Pumpkin Patch proceeds also will be donated to Suthers Center.
