The Lazarus Fund is supported by donations and managed by the Missions Committee. The fund is available to help folks with rent, utilities and groceries. A couple of times a year the fund runs dry, so please pray for how you can contribute!
Members of our church help to cook for out community Thanksgiving meal. The meal is free to anyone in the community and is located at the Community Center the Wednesday night before Thanksgiving. Volunteers are needed to help prepare and package the meals!
During the November we collected information for Christmas for the Children. This program finds sponsors for children who purchase and wrap new gifts for Christmas. For the past two years in a row, CBC has sponsored over 60 children! Many of these children would not otherwise have gifts. The gifts are delivered to the homes a few days before Christmas and everyone is excited………the parents, the kids and US! Volunteers are needed to sponsor children and help deliver the gifts.
We have several teams of adults and children who help to pack food for underprivileged kids in our community. The kids receive a bag of food every Friday at school to help their families make it through the weekend.
During the school year our church feeds multiple sports teams and the band before their games. Our church members help to cook the food and some of our teenagers and adults help to serve the teams. Our Student Pastor prays for the meals and shares some uplifting words with the students. We are always looking for volunteers!
