Mission Work

Mission work is central to our identity. We get a sense of joy and fulfillment in serving families in need. We donate time and resources to these programs, trying to be all we can as the hands and feet of Christ in the world.

Angel Tree gives us the opportunity to share Christ’s love by helping to meet the needs of children and families in our community. Gift tags on the Christmas tree specify needs for gifts for those less fortunate in partnership with the City of Bellevue Human Service Division.
The BackPack Program provides food for hungry children when other resources are not available, such as during weekends and school vacations. Staff members at local elementary schools identify chronically hungry students. Food Bank for the Heartland supplies packs filled with nutritious food for those children to take home on Friday afternoons.
The Bellevue Food Pantry, a local outreach program, provides food, paper products, detergent, and personal hygiene items to those in need in Sarpy County. Please take a colorful bag to fill and return it to the grocery cart in the narthex for distribution to the pantry.
The Backdoor Boutique, supported by various church groups and operated out of the First Baptist Church, serves an increasing number of families and individuals. Underclothes are rarely donated and are in great need. We collect undies each year to support this need.
