RocReach is the corporate outreach initiative of Bethel Christian Fellowship. Our vision is to “To reveal Christ’s love and demonstrate His power everywhere we go.” RocReach is another way we aim to introduce our city to the love of Jesus. We serve the God of the Impossible and we carry His message of hope that will bring peace, healing, and restoration.
This is a monthly outreach to the residents of Manhattan Square & Savannah Towers, downtown. Volunteers are always welcome! Come and serve when you can. We meet every third Saturday of the month in the Body Shop at 8:45am. After a time of prayer, we make our way to the Towers to give, serve, and pray for the residents. You can come one time, or for however long of a commitment you’d like to make. Donations are also welcome. You can bring a 50 oz. yellow bottle of Arm & Hammer laundry detergent on Sunday mornings to the AAB table in front of the sanctuary, or give a financial donation on our Giving page.
Edgerton: Tacoma Playground
Bringing CHRISTmas Home
Christmas, for us, is all about revealing Christ’s love. And since we have a heart for these neighborhoods, it’s seems right that we bring CHRISTmas to them. On Christmas morning, we headed out to the Edgerton/Tacoma Playground area and Manhattan Square to bless the residents with gift bags and a simple reminder that someone is praying for them. In 2016 we distributed close to 300 bags, with 100 volunteers.
Treats in a Trunk
Our first Candy Parade, where kids went from trunk to trunk collecting candy, was a huge success. On Halloween we purposed to be a Light on a dark day and bless the kids in the Tacoma Playground neighborhood. We saw over 400 people, gave away 266 Lifebooks and hundreds of pounds of candy, talked to many families, and left a deposit of God’s love.
Our annual celebration is a great evangelistic event, catering to families. This year we were at Tacoma Playground in Rochester. Hundreds of people came out. We ate lunch, played with the kids, bounced in a house, painted faces, listened to music, danced, and gave away gifts & school supplies. Through a homeowner, God has given us a heart for the Edgerton area, and a vision. Pray with us as we continue to move forward in that vision and for that neighborhood. In the meantime, we’re building relationships with the neighbors; and one way is through RocFest.
