C.A.R.E. (Christians Actively Reaching Everyone)
What is C.A.R.E.? C.A.R.E. is a network of GSBC service groups that targets and addresses a wide variety of needs within the church and in the surrounding communities. C.A.R.E. helps coordinate various service activities and it functions as an "umbrella" under which GSBC inreach and outreach efforts come alive.
C.A.R.E. provides the GSBC family opportunities to serve, and it encourages members to live out their faith through actions of justice, peace, and humility. C.A.R.E. helps coordinate inreach and outreach activities such as providing meals and encouragement for the sick, shut-in, and disadvantaged; showing appreciation to volunteers and first responders; participating in community fundraisers and support projects; and much, much more!
C.A.R.E meetings are held twice per month and are a great way to learn about and volunteer for various service projects. Please see the church calendar for meeting dates and times. And please join us at our next meeting!
