Community Compassion

The purpose of Community Compassion is to glorify God by meeting the spiritual and physical needs of our neighbors (Matthew 9:35-38). Read this entire page for the breadth of this ministry and how we are trusting God to fulfill this purpose. BCC is currently looking for lay leadership to oversee this ministry.

Short Term Projects
The Community Compassion ministry was birthed by offering many short term projects for BCCers to get involved in. Some of the ministries below started as short term projects and have turned into long term ministries. Contact the office for more info on other short term compassion projects coming up at Bethany Community Church.

Benevolence Point People
The purpose of the benevolence point people is to glorify God by following up with benevolence callers trusting the Lord for movement from relief to restoration (2 Corinthians 5:19). 

Rebuilding Hope Initiative (RHI), This Ministry is Currently on Hold at BCC
The purpose of the Rebuilding Hope Initiative is to glorify God as we bring the gospel to neighbors in need of home restoration. From a local fire to an international natural disaster to a need for general home restoration due to lack of funds, BCC desires to bring hope in physical and spiritual ways. For more info on BCC's role in local disaster relief, see our partnership with the Tri-County COAD below. BCC also looks to send teams around the country and globe. RHI also facilitates short term local opportunities to serve our neighbors through physical restoration of their homes due to a lack of funds. These "trips" typically take place in the summer over a 3-4 day long weekend and can involve the entire family, and sometimes they are just a day project.

Jail Ministry
We continue to minister to the men awaiting trial or sentencing or are serving a short term sentence (less than 12 months) at Woodford County Jail by providing Bibles and conducting a weekly bible study every Sunday morning. The men in jail who participate in the studies do so voluntarily. Opportunities to participate in this ministry include: prayer, sending letters (sent from the BCC office), packages, and reading materials.

Make a Meal
Make a meal ministry is open to anyone wanting to volunteer to help prepare meals for the families BCC has helped through benevolence requests. The meals are prepared then frozen to have available to distribute as needed. Volunteers gather in a group to prepare the food periodically as needed.
