At Home

Ministering in Our Jerusalem  (Our Community)

In the midst of this uncertain economy, most of us have warm shelter, clothing to wear and food on our tables. That is not the case for some Harford County families and for some families within our Church.  Please pray for these families and give as you are able.   To help Bel Air Church families struggling financially, mark your donation for the  “Benevolence Fund”.

Following are some community organizations and activities through which the Bel Air Church reaches out to our neighbors.

Helping Hands – ServeFest

“Helping Hands” is a ministry outreach of the Bel Air church. Bel Air Nazarenes have the opportunity to be the hands of Jesus doing home repairs and yard work  for members and neighbors unable to do the work themselves. Please contact Steve Vaughan if you would like to be a part of this ministry.

“Serve Fest” is a community wide service effort held on a Saturday in April in which many Harford County churches and organizations, as well as the Bel Air Church family participate.  Steve Vaughan organizes the Bel Air Church group and will post more information as the date gets closer.

Faith Communities and Civic Agencies United

On the 25th of each month, you will find Bel Air Nazarene’s  serving at the Welcome One Homeless Shelter at Riverside.  Our day at the shelter involves grocery shopping, preparing dinner, packing lunches for the next day and providing breakfast.  Besides cooking and cleaning up, volunteers serve as host and hostess and provide coverage at the shelter till midnight.  Both volunteers and financial gifts are much-needed. Both at the Welcome One Shelter and the Fellowship (Day) Center.

Tabitha’s House

A food drive is held at the Bel Air Church during the months of March and April, to help restock the food pantry at Tabitha’s House, a ministry of Mountain Christian Church,  The March-April period allows the ministry to benefit from a Feinstein Foundation Grant.  We also collect grocery gift cards and food items at Thanksgiving time which are given out by Tabitha’s that enables families to enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner.

Summer time is often crunch time for Tabitha’s House financially. Toiletries, such as toothpaste & toothbrushes, shampoo, deodorant, shaving cream, toilet paper and razors are in short supply so donations are requested. Financial donations to this worthy organization are encouraged.
