Making Service Personal
The United States Census reported in 2010 that Bellflower, California
had a population of 76,616. The population density was 12,416.7 people per square mile. Among this ‘tightly packed’ city are people from many different backgrounds who live in a wide variety of conditions – begging the questions:
Do we see each other?
Have we met one another?
How has God called us to help one another?
At BellOne, we are seeking to live into these questions in a personal way by reaching out with the love that God has shown us in Christ.
BellOne is committed to using our resources, both spiritual and physical, for God’s kingdom. We do that by being mission-focused individuals, being strategic and intentional with the way we live in our own communities and work spaces, and by partnering with these local organizations and community resources.
Kingdom Causes Bellflower is an organization that inspires, connects and mobilizes people towards personal and community transformation.
Kids Hope USA has provided First Christian Reformed Church of Bellflower with the training and supportive resources to mentor students in our local public elementary school. Kids Hope USA mentors spend just one hour per week, reading, talking, playing and listening to a child at school. By helping the child feel loved and valued, they help that child to learn, grow and succeed.
The Kids Hope USA team at BellOne would be grateful for any educational games, board games, flash cards, puzzles for grades K-6th to assist the mentors in session preparation. If you have any complete sets that you’re not using, or if you see any while you’re out shopping – keep us in mind.
