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 or will be 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 local ministry

We also serve our local community in the following ministries as well.

 Community Table (year-round): 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.

One of the largest ministries of our church has to do with serving our local community and living out a compassionate lifestyle. Clothing Closet has been apart of our church for several years and recently has taken off as we are able to better minister to Birdsboro and connecting 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.
