ministry & outreach

Did you know that 3 out of 4 teachers say they have children in their classrooms who regularly come to school hungry?

The Bag Brigade started with the intent on helping end childhood hunger in our community and a conviction that every child should have the nourishment they need to learn and grow. The mission is simple – pack bags with food so the kids in need throughout the BVASD don’t go hungry on the weekends. 

Built on the commitment to offer a hand up, not a hand out, H&FP provides FREE clothing for all school age children in need.

No income requirement.

Anchored Heart provides local kids and families with Christ-centered kids' activities, an after school program, and transportation to the church. We  work on building relationships with families through a steady presence and listening ear.

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.
Hebrews 6:19 

Local & Global Outreach

As we recognize that we cannot fulfill God’s mission all by ourselves, we partner with other ministries in order to bring Jesus to those outside our own realm.

Locally, we partner with CCO (Coalition for Christian Outreach) in calling college students to serve Jesus Christ with their entire lives. Our local ministry, S.T.A.N.D. (Students Taking A New Direction), is located at California University.

Internationally, we have partnered for years with the Envision site in El Salvador doing church plants, community support, construction, and ministry for the poor.  
Currently, we have begun a new partnership with international workers in Kosovo, supporting the C&MA team, praying for them, and providing pastoral care.

As part of the worldwide family of the Christian & Missionary Alliance, we are invested in mission work.
