BAY AREA TURNING POINT
Opportunity 1: Small Project – BATP always has an ongoing list of small projects that need to be completed including painting, landscaping, organizing food, separating donations, cleaning, etc. If your group is interested, please contact me and we’ll find the project that best fits your group! Teens over 14 years old welcome!
Opportunity 2: Food or Needs Drives – BATP has a specific list of needs each month for both food and items (paper goods, diapers, etc.). Please contact me for the list and get together as a group to gather as many items on the list as you are able. Get the kids involved by taking them shopping for the list or asking them to make cards for the welcoming baskets that the ladies receive when they enter the shelter (positive words and uplifting Bible Verses are perfect).

The Bridge is in desperate need of new school clothes for the children currently being sheltered there. Regular, not uniforms, however, they must be NEW! Even $3-4 t-shirts will be a great blessing to the children.

Good Neighbors serves people living outside the margin, right here in League City. We provide groceries (fresh produce and dry goods) as a way to support their physical needs while sharing the Good News as a way to support their spiritual needs. We serve every 1st and 3rd Saturday except for holiday weekends and provide Groceries and Gospel from 10:30 to noon. We show up and set up at 10:30. Bring your kids, this is a great opportunity for your kids to serve with you, and seeing all our kids playing together is a huge blessing. We have a Children’s Ministry blanket that happens during Bible Storytime so that the grownups can focus on the Story, and the kiddos can hear a story of their own and have some fun making crafts, coloring, and playing games together. After storytime, we all pray together, then the neighbors share their prayer requests, make their food selections, and we wrap up, tear down, and are done by noon. We are currently meeting in the Soccer fields, 320 Texas Avenue, League City. 10:30 – noon, 1st and I rd Saturdays. We gratefully receive contributions of fresh produce, dried goods, and bread to share with our Good Neighbors.

Wheels of Hope is in need of cars to donate to those in need of transportation. The current climate of huge markups in the used car market has made it very hard to find quality vehicles for those in need. We also accept cash to enable us to purchase vehicles.
