International Outreach

In 2004, our church-sponsored Kenyan Project members traveled to Kenya to assist with the building and completion of the clinic. In 2006, Kenya suffered a drought and was unable to grow corn, their staple crop. We held a fundraiser and were able to purchase and send a large amount of corn to Kenya. In 2007, we began raising funds to enlarge the Kenyan church, a project that is still ongoing. We have a new mission in Uganda that is still taking shape.

EASTER WEEKEND AND CHURCH UPDATE

As most of you know, the continued spread of COVID-19 has resulted in the current Shelter in Place order to be extended to at least May 3, 2020. We urge everyone to stay safe and healthy and continue to abide by the laws and rules set in place to help stop the spreading of this virus. Community Baptist Church will remain closed as long as the Shelter in Place is in effect and we ask that our members continue to refrain from coming to the church, for the health and safety of yourselves, your families, and our staff and their families, as well as the community. We will continue to bring you updates, services, prayer and bible studies online and thank you for your support. Good Friday and Easter Sunday services will be done via livestream on Facebook.

Since Easter celebrations have been canceled this year, and there are many families and individuals that stand in need- especially of food support, we are teaming up with California Homemakers Association to do a Spring/Easter food distribution and Easter bag giveaway on Saturday, April 11th at Community Baptist Church, 1620 Sonoma Avenue, Santa Rosa. We will be set up in the parking lot of the church.

We are asking our members and the community to donate items needed and volunteers to drive donations to people who cannot drive to the church- doorstep drop-off delivery of course.

FOOD GIVEAWAY: If you are in need of food supplies, or would like to donate food supplies needed or volunteer, we ask that you call California Homemakers Association NO LATER THAN MONDAY, APRIL 6TH, so we can ensure we have enough for everyone and can put the bags together for distribution. They can be reached at 707-591-9573.

EASTER BAGS: If you would like to sign up to pick up Easter bags for your children, or would like to arrange a day and time to drop off donations of bags of WRAPPED candy, please call Maria Dwyer at Community Baptist Church 707-546-0744 x 304 NO LATER THAN MONDAY APRIL 6TH.
