Local Compassion

“And don’t forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God.” Hebrews 13:16


BIRDSBORO CHURCH OF THE NAZARENE encourages our people to see missions as all inclusive, whether that is reaching across our globe or across the street. Our local church has ways to be involved.

Some projects in which we as a church have been involved:

  • School supplies and backpacks collection for children in Philadelphia & Reading
  • Working on renovations at a church/outreach center in Philadelphia
  • Hats, scarves, and mittens collection for a local ministry

We also serve our local community with the following ongoing ministries:

Community Table

Sponsored by Love INC – volunteers from our church donate, prepare and/or serve a healthy, balanced meal to an average of 75 residents of Birdsboro. It’s a blessing to fellowship at each Community Table event.

Mission Trip Birdsboro

This community outreach event is made possible through the partnership of several partnering congregations and sponsoring organizations throughout the Birdsboro area. A week each year in July is dedicated to making improvements to local parks & schools as well as for dozens of homeowners in need. Learn more about this ministry here.

Clothing Closet

Our largest in-house ministry is our free Clothing Closet. The Community Clothing Closet has been a part of our church for many years, and through this ministry we serve communities in Berks County and beyond. The mission of BNC Clothing Closet is to provide assistance to individuals and families in need of clothing free of charge.
