Benevolence (Christian Caring)
On the first Sunday of even months, in addition to our weekly offering collection, Chandler Bible Church collects a special benevolence offering for funds to be used to assist members of the Chandler and surrounding communities, both within and outside the church body, with financial needs. These funds are typically used to assist recipients with housing, utility, medical, transportation, and food needs. If you have a need that we may be able to assist you with, please call the church office.
Chandler Bible Church keeps a food pantry stocked with “kits” of groceries that include approximately one week’s worth of meals for a family of 4. If we can share one of these kits with you, please call the church office.
The program, originally started by another church in the valley, is to provide a meal to people in need each Saturday of the month at Moeur Park in Tempe. Chandler Bible Church helps with this event on the first Saturday of each month. We gather food donations from people in the church and local businesses to serve the people at the park. In addition to the physical food that is shared, we also share the Gospel of Jesus Christ through large-group presentation and one-on-one visiting and prayer.
There are many activities throughout the month, and especially on the first Saturday, to help prepare for this event. The main activity starts around 5:00pm at the church campus, and we are back at the church by 7:30pm for cleanup. Our program has expanded to include clothing, personal hygiene products, razors and batteries.
