Serving Others

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.’ -Matthew 25: 35-36


Matthew 25 is one of many places in scripture where we are given the call to serve those in need, whether they are hungry, thirsty, sick, homeless, or experiencing some other need. As we move into a new year it is good to remember the various opportunities in our community. Our service takes shape in several ways, in volunteering our time and energy, in donating our money, and in praying for those in need and the people and organizations helping them. The opportunities listed below are not a comprehensive list, but are ones we at BPC have an ongoing history with. I encourage you to consider how God is calling you to serve our community in 2022.
