We are continuing to serve our Good Neighbors at Rancho del Rey and Town Village mobile home parks through “Ministry by Mail.” Each week that would be a serve week during non-pandemic times, we are writing a note of encouragement, prayer, and scripture, along with ten dollars towards their grocery needs, and mailing to families of the regular attenders of our Bible Study and Grocery Pick up. If you would like to participate in this effort by supporting one family (or more) from the neighborhood, please reach out and we will provide you with the name and address of a family to walk beside.

We meet at the 4B Warehouse at 15 27th Street N in Texas City at 8 a.m. for prayer and instructions and then go out on assignment. There is a job for everyone – no construction experience is necessary, just a willingness to help our community. To register please go to our website.
