But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8 (NIV)
Our task a Goochland Baptist Church is to be witnesses in Goochland County, VA and to the end of the earth. We partner with a variety of faith groups, non-profits, individuals, and other organizations locally, nationally, and internationally and consider it a privilege that we can make a difference in our community and beyond. Adults, youth, and children at GBC have participated in a variety of service projects over the years. Below are just a of the ways you can help.
We'll be hosting a GoochlandCares volunteer day on Saturday, September 25. Volunteers from our church family will meet at GoochlandCares at 9:00 am to serve until noon. We'll be helping clean their food pantry and clothes closet. If you can help, contact the church office to sign up.
September Backpack Drive
Our partners at CARITAS, GoochlandCares, and South Anna Elementary School have all shared their need for backpacks this month. Many children across Central Virginia begin school without a backpack. We will be collecting both adult-sized and child-sized backpacks to donate to these agencies to make sure children who need them receive them. Please drop off backpacks in the sanctuary foyer.
