BBC maintains a food pantry to help those in need in our community of faith and in the community at large. Members are encouraged to make routine donations to the food pantry as God provides. Food and other items may be dropped off on a set of stainless steel shelves across from the bookstore café in the chapel hallway. If you know of someone in need of help from this pantry, please call the church during normal business hours for more details.
Presently the food pantry needs: jelly, syrup, complete boxed meals, canned meat, spaghetti sauce, dried pasta, pancake mix, pasta meals, rice meals, TV dinners, instant coffee, oatmeal, grits, Ramen Noodles, and soup. Personal hygiene items are also needed like: shampoo, deodorant, laundry soap, feminine needs, and toilet paper.

BBC members, regular attendees, and people not associated with BBC may apply for financial assistance through our Benevolence Ministry. The financial assistance requests of members and regular attendees will be given priority for assistance; however, whenever possible, the needs of people not associated with BBC will be carefully considered. Benevolence is intended to assist those in need due to unexpected hardships (i.e. loss of job, medical emergency) resulting in a short-term specific need. We are unable to consider any requests except those that are short-term in nature. We are not able to provide long-term assistance. We do not help with childcare, long-term or chronic medical, credit card, taxes, or legal expenses. Our goal is to provide compassionate assistance according to our guidelines and available resources in time of difficulty.
