Outreach

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere—in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” Acts 1:8

OUTREACH STRATEGY 

We exist to move people into a more dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ. Every dollar given at BCC resources our purpose. We believe that the church does not exist for us; we are the church and we exist for the world. That is why we will fund local, national, and international outreach efforts. We will fund:

  • Local outreach partners that are feeding, clothing, and provide assistance to people in need.
  • National church planting efforts and disaster relief.
  • Mobilization of our congregation in local, national, and international projects and outreach journeys.
  • Reaching the unreached around the world.
  • Local church-planting and revitalization initiatives.
  • Denominational support: Cooperative Program, North Carolina Baptist Convention, and Transylvania Baptist Association.
  • Missionaries supported by BCC, and BCC members who are going to the mission field. 

 

outreach Trips

Appalachian Christmas Outreach • Coeburn, VA • December 13-14, 2019  Applications available! Appalachian Christmas Outreach is a partnership with Appalachian Coalfield Ministry. The Appalachian Coalfields Ministry seeks to meet physical and spiritual needs of people living in the Appalachian Area. Working with ministry centers and churches in five Appalachian states, we help mobilize volunteers and resources to meet needs. One of the greatest needs in this area occurs around Christmastime. We will be distributing shoes and backpacks while offering a listening ear, counseling, and prayer. Trip size is limited to 30 people. Cost is $75, ages 8 and older. Children ages 14 & under must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. 

Shoe & Backpack Collection

We are also collecting new, unworn athletic shoes as well as new, unused backpacks filled with items for boy and girl students 11-17 years old.   Items can be left in the rear of the auditorium on weekends, or can be dropped off at the church office during the week. Details about items needed are located on the back of this insert. 

Each zippered school backpack should include:

  • Small items of NEW items of warm clothing such as winter hats, gloves, socks, underwear, scarves, etc.

  • Hygiene items including toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, washcloth, brush or comb, shampoo, deodorant (please fit these items into a one gallon Ziploc bag so they do not leak out into the rest of the backpack).
