Service Opportunities

November/December 2019

This holiday season, BCC will be supporting the Salvation Army in three ways as a church-wide service opportunity.

Salvation Army Kettle Bell Ringing

We are recruiting volunteers to ring the red kettle bell in shifts between now and Christmas Eve. Volunteers are the difference between an empty kettle and one that raises about $30/hour—enough to provide a family with two bags of groceries, or shelter an individual for a night. There is an immediate need for bell ringers! Sign up on the Worship Center patio, or contact Kathy Spillar in the BCC office: kathy.spillar@connectbcc.org.

The Giving Tree

Beginning Sun., Nov. 24, there will be a Giving Tree in our Worship Center lobby. Simply choose an ornament tag with a local child’s name and age on it, and buy a gift for them to make their Christmas extra special.

All gifts (wrapped or unwrapped) can be dropped off in one of 3 places:

  • – the BCC office Mon.-Thurs., 8:30am-4:30pm on or before Dec. 12
  • – the Worship Center lobby on Sun., Dec. 15, before or after worship services
  • – The Salvation Army (1161 S. Bernardo Ave., Sunnyvale 94087) on Tues., Dec 17, 9:00am-2:00pm

Adopt-A-Family

Our BCC Life Groups are sponsoring local families in need by providing Christmas dinner, other basic groceries, Christmas gifts, or gift certificates. Click here for helpful guidelines on sponsoring a family through Salvation Army.

If you are not part of a Life Group or would like to sponsor a family on your own, please contact Kathy Spillar: kathy.spillar@connectbcc.org.

For delivery instructions, contact Kathy Spillar.

Baja Short-Term Mission Trip

A group from BCC will be taking a short-term mission trip to Baja Mexico, Feb. 15-20, 2020, during which we will be working with an organization known as Baja Christian Ministries to build a home for a needy family and serve local churches in the Tecate region of Baja. The trip will cost $600/person, and is open to anyone, age 13 and up. No prior construction experience is necessary. If interested in participating or for more information, please contact Steve Durand by Sun., Dec. 15: steve.durand@connectbcc.org.
