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. We continually seek to develop an understanding of what is most needed for our ministry partners 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."
April Outreach Project
Our April outreach project will be Presencia, the afterschool mentoring program serving Dresden Elementary students, most from immigrant families, at an apartment complex in the Buford Hwy. corridor. Through small groups and a Friday outdoor gathering, 40 children and their families have continued to receive support (safely) during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our focus will be on the following:
Collecting financial donations to provide snacks/drinks for the Friday gatherings.
Collecting financial donations to support the program’s Good Neighbor Fund, which helps families in crisis with groceries or rent assistance.
Delivering snacks/drinks on several Fridays during April (in a safe way). Thanks to the BCC Members who are delivering!
