Local Missions

"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these
brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.”

Matthew 25:40

As the church, we are called to impact our communities. We bring the hope of the gospel to those around us as we serve. Check out our partners below and find a place to show others the hope of Jesus.

Local Missions Organizations

Salvation Army

The Salvation Army's mission is to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ and to meet human needs in his name without discrimination. This provides us an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus to our local community to provide meals and other items to those in need in our community.

How to get involved:
During this pandemic, the Salvation Army pantry has been distributing groceries and hygiene items. They are especially in need of the following regular-sized items: toothpaste, toothbrushes, shampoo & conditioner, razors, shave gel/cream, deodorant, bar soap or body wash.   You can bring these items and drop them off under the portico at CBC in the marked bins.

Additionally, the Salvation Army likes to give out groceries in "Bags of Hope".   We can help by decorating some plain grocery bags for them with pictures and Bible verses.   This is a great project for families to do together.   Bags waiting to be decorated will also be under the portico at CBC. Please return them to the "completed" bin.

Second Sunday serving meals to those in need.  Volunteers come one Sunday per month from 11:30am to 1:30pm.  They bring four quarts of potato salad (can purchase from Walmart for $20 total), pack meals and hand them out.  Social distancing is followed. Click here to sign up!
