For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink,
 I was a stranger and you welcomed me

Join a BLC Outreach Team

Family Outreach

Contact Susan McGeary
What can we do to connect with the families from outside of BLC who are in our building (Early Learning Center, Basketball, Vacation Bible School, Camp Son light)? Learn about opportunities that are in place and brainstorm and develop plans for new connection opportunities!!

Community Outreach

Contact Lynn Kenney 
How can we personally connect with people in our immediate community with the ultimate goal of finding an opportunity to share the Gospel?

There are many options:
  • Singular or ongoing service/volunteer opportunities
  • Prayer walks
  • Planning "social events" that the congregation can invite unchurched family and friends to
  • Participate in Ridgewood events

Join the team! What are your ideas, where do you see a need? 

Prayer Connection Team 

Contact Elaine Bitten 
We have a great prayer community who diligently pray for our prayer chain requests however, we are weak on the follow up. Be part of a team that will personally connect to those who make a prayer request from our congregation. Make a call, send a card, text, email.... Be sure they know BLC is praying for them. Wouldn't it be great if we could offer to be in prayer for our BELC families??
