Our Food Bank Partner: Katy Christian Ministries (KCM)
Bear Creek United Methodist Church (BCUMC), in partnership with Katy Christian Ministries (KCM), assists our community with gifts of food to those in need. KCM provides emergency assistance for those in need due to financial crisis, divorce, natural disaster, illness, etc. KCM’s service area has expanded to serve those living within our church’s 77084 ZIP code. BCUMC contributes by collecting peanut butter and jelly and monetary gifts for food purchase. You can join us in this effort by participating in BCUMC Missions events and/or by donating to this worthy cause. Please bring donations to the Welcome Center before or after services on Sunday, or to the church office during business hours Monday through Friday.
BCUMC is one of many Texas churches that participates in Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree program. This non-profit, volunteer-reliant organization reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ.
BCUMC connects with Angel Tree families several times during the year. The church sponsors an Easter Basket and Breakfast Party in the spring and a Backpack Party just before the start of the school year.
Our biggest event is the annual Christmas party, when each child opens two gifts donated by our church members. Every child and caregiver also receives a stocking filled with little gifts. Santa always makes an appearance at the party, which ends with the story of the best gift of all: the love of Christ.
A Day of “Thanks” and “Giving”
Scheduled for the Saturday before Thanksgiving, this special day is planned for BCUMC families not only to come together to celebrate and give thanks for the many blessings we have received, but also to reach out and connect with less fortunate families. A food drive is scheduled the month before the event, with a goal to pack 500 food boxes filled with necessities for their Thanksgiving dinners.
On this Saturday, special “thanking” activities are planned for children and adults, lunch is prepared by our United Methodist Men, and entertainment is provided by KidsRock.
Saturdays in Service
The Missions Committee sponsors Saturdays in Service as needed when members are asked to help with repair or beautification projects on our church campus. From time to time, these days of service may include helping other non-profit organizations.
