We recognize that God has called us not only to bring the gospel and love to people globally, but also to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those right here in our community. There are many wonderful, on-going community outreach opportunities within the South County that have a great need for God's people.
The Bridge Project
This after school homework and reading program has provided a unique opportunity for MHBC to cultivate relationships within our community to the economically disadvantaged community. Run by Discovery Counseling Center, the program runs four days per week. This program provides an opportunity to work with children who need assistance in building good reading and study skills. The program is conducted at Jasmine Square and Village Avante communities.
There is a great need for volunteers at both locations. No special skills are required; just a willing heart to serve and love kids. All ages are welcome and encouraged. If you are interested in serving, please contact Michelle Montoya or Lee Stamps.
Each November, MHBC provides baskets to families in our community. As a congregation, we build food baskets with many different items including cookies, corn, potatoes, beans and a $25 gift card. Anyone can help by purchasing the items for the baskets, assembling the baskets and handing out or delivering the baskets.
If you know of someone or a family in need or would like to participate, please contact us. Check back for more information in November.
Beautiful Day is a county-wide community service project where many private and public organizations come together to beautify the South Valley. This event partners with volunteers to work with amazing organizations, schools, businesses, groups and cities. This valley can only be great if we all work together to achieve this.
At the heart of Beautiful Day is service. Since its inception in 2004, Beautiful Day has sought to invest in communities with simple, direct and unyielding kindness. Each project is an act of no-strings-attached service for those who are otherwise unable to help themselves. The goal is to aggressively spread compassion, to discard apathy in favor of activity and light fires of good will in the neighborhoods we work and live in.
