BACKYARD BIBLE CLUB
This is an event once a month during the school year and then twice a month during the summer. It is for grades Pre-K - 6th Grade. We get together to play games, make crafts, sing songs and learn about God's word. If you are interested in attending or help with BBC please contact Chris.
EAST ELEMENTARY MENTORING
If you have a passion for young children, education, and the Lord, please consider being a mentor to an elementary-age student. The local elementary school has invited us into the school to mentor students and build relationships that have a lasting impact. We are currently looking for more mentors. Please prayerfully consider joining us in this intentional, simple endeavor to reach the children in our community.
Once a week Love Brownwood provides a parenting class at the Love Brownwood Community Center at 5 p.m. You must be enrolled in the 6 week course in order to receive certification for the course. Visitors are welcome!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
During the summer months, we partner with Good Samaritan Ministries to provide food for chronically hungry children. GSM provides the food, and we ask church members to volunteer to deliver a bag of food each week to the same family. We started the summer program in 2012, and we have seen lasting relationships built between church members and families.
Each quarter multiple Sunday school classes participate in our Service Sunday. They miss the normal church activities to serve in the community. Visiting our neighbors, repairing a house, and assisting the local homeless shelter are among some of the projects we have participated in. Our next Service Sunday is October 22, 2017; please contact Chris if you would like to participate.
Last December we hosted First Blessing. We distributed new shoes to 97 children, served a warm breakfast and connected with families. This was a special day for our community and church family. It was a blessing to meeting and serve sweet families in Brownwood. Each family at First Blessing receives breakfast, socks, shoes, the Jesus Storybook Bible, and a picture wit Santa! It is a FUN morning! This is a time to connect families with the love of Jesus Christ. Important dates: First Blessing Meeting - November 5. First Blessing Shoe Event - December 2.
