I’ve been captivated this Advent season with the ongoing story of giving by Baxter Road Bible Church (BRBC). Under their December theme of “It’s not your birthday”, they are giving 100% of church income to local community charities, and smaller ministries. BRBC Sr. Pastor Bob Mather has been graciously sharing news of their progress with Church Visits. This church of some three-hundred (300) has been giving in an unbelievable fashion.
Pastor Bob has shared their membership contributed close to $14,000 this past Sunday, December 18, bringing the December total of giving to almost $35,000.
BRBC is planning on sending funds to a number of local groups this week.
$4,000 – Love INC
$2,000 – Rescue Mission
$1,000 – Seafarers Mission
$1,500 – Haitian Christian Mission
$1,500 – Northern Frontier Ministries
$1,000 – Roger Huntington (Native Youth Camp)
$1,000 – Crisis Pregnancy Center
$2,000 – Alaska Family Council
I applaud BRBC’s commitment to those less fortunate than themselves. To date, no other church in our local community has come to my attention with such a unique focus to their neighbor.
If you want to be a part of this endeavor, I’m certain Baxter Road Bible Church would not turn down a contribution in support of this massive act of faith, emphasizing giving to others than ourselves. Their website is here and their phone number is 907-337-5222.
