Mission is Bell Church at work: reaching out, helping out, seeking to share God's desire to make all things right in Jesus Christ. Below are several opportunities in which Bell Church is currently involved. Anyone can participate in mission, member or non-member.
Compassion International / Taylor Aparicio
Bell sponsors Taylor Ortega De Jesus Aparicio. Born on March 27 2013, Taylor lives in Columbia. The Bell kids and teens write Taylor letters and get updates on him regularly. Bell has been sponsoring Taylor since April of 2016.
RUMMAGE SALE / OCT 3-5 2017
The rummage sale provides clothing and goods to the community at minimal cost, and is a connecting point for our neighbors, the borough, and the people of Bell Church.
Greet & Treat / October 31
Greet and treat provides candy for kids and a respite for parents busy going from house to house. The most neighborhood friendly night of the year, Halloween night gives Bell Church the opportunity to really get to know our neighbors.
Holy Redeemer Social Services
During September, we collect cans of soup. Collection bin in the foyer. The first Thursday of the month, HRSS invites volunteers to stock and organize the food pantry.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Samaritan's Purse provides gift boxes for children nationally and internationally for Christmas. Bell Church is one of many churches that purchase fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to fill the shoeboxes. Some items, like toothpaste and candy in 2017, violate customs regulations. Bell Church collects items for shoeboxes or packed shoeboxes October 8 through November 12.
The garden produce supplies the Holy Redeemer Social Services food bank. Mio Morris tends Bell's two garden beds. The beds themselves were made by Doug Schroth.
