B.O.L.D. for Christ Outreach Ministry of SAFCOG
Building Overcomers & Loving Disciples for Christ Ministry
Coordinator: Rev. Vera W. Carroll
This mission ministry reaches into the heart of the community by meeting daily needs and providing ways to hear about our Lord and Savior; Jesus Christ. Below are a few things that B.O.L.D supports and provides:
FireFest Community Outreach - Annual event held in August that provides school supplies and book bags to local children who may not be able to purchase the needed items to begin their school year. It has most recently been combined with Vacation Bible School and is usually a 3 day event starting on Friday. We have shown Christian movies (Courageous, Facing the Giants, Fly Wheel to name a few). On Saturdays we provide food and fun games for all.
Outreach Conference Training - Training for mission work, outreach, prayer conferences, etc.
Benevolence - Meeting the needs to those who have financial emergency needs.
Mission Support - Providing funds to local organizations to feed the homeless, providing Christmas presents to a family in need or funding those who are in the mission field.
Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes - Over the last 4 years we have prepared more than 60 shoeboxes filled with toys, school supplies, etc. These boxes are prepared and dropped off at a location set up by Samaritan's Purse who delivers millions of these shoe boxes to children in third world countries. Most have never had a toy in their lives and find great joy from receiving the box. Samaritan's Purse provides the opportunity to teach about Jesus and many accept Christ.
Start packing a box now for next year. Purchase 1 item per month - fill a box or 2.
