Family Food Pantry
The Family Food Pantry is a ministry funded by KBC, but supported by numerous partner churches and individuals. The pantry serves the local and immigrant population in south St. Louis centered around the Bevo Mill area. Space is generously provided by the Jubilee Church at Chippewa and Kingshighway and the pantry is open every Saturday morning. The work of the pantry is to show the love of Christ by providing nutritional support to those in need and to forge connections within the community.
Teams from our church have made visits to our sister churches in Cuba since the 1990s to maintain our close ties of friendship, prayer for each other, and support. In recent years, we’ve been working with Iglesia Bautista Canaan in the town of Bolivia. Some of the most joyous times are when we help with their summer Bible Schools for all the children. We have also carried gifts for the repair of hurricane damage to the church building, and supplies for their new water purification system which provides clean water to the community as a way of outreach and ministry.
God's Green Earth
Each Spring our church buys trees to give away to the community. It is a small way we can love our world.
KBC has two homes on our property that provide housing for families out of town/out of the country while their loved one is in the hospital. Families usually stay between 1 – 6 months and our hospitably team provides care for the families during their stay.
Since we have started this ministry in late 2018 we have served dozen of families that have come from states as close as Iowa, to countries as far away as South Africa. A dedicated group of volunteers prepare the homes for each new families, provide them with tasty snacks when they first arrive. There are many different ways people can get involved.
Stephen Ministry is the one-to-one lay caring ministry that takes place in congregations that use the Stephen Series system. Stephen Ministry congregations equip and empower lay caregivers—called Stephen Ministers—to provide high-quality, confidential, Christ-centered care to people who are hurting.
