Faith and Blue was a Success!
What is Faith & Blue?
Faith & Blue is based on the premise that strong communities are built through mutual respect and understanding. Law enforcement and faith institutions are key pillars of each community, and when they work together, neighborhoods thrive.
We were blessed to provide groceries to 520 people at New Liberty Church in Long Beach with the help of law enforcement at the Faith and Blue event. We are grateful for the chance to work side by side with so many great volunteers and LBPD to make this happen!
Overcoming Obstacles is an award-winning curriculum that has proven to be effective in teaching kids of all ages critical life skills. Gabriella Magar is experienced in working with children and will lead the course for our middle-school kids beginning next year. The curriculum promises to help kids build confidence, problem-solve, resolve conflicts, and study effectively. Gabby’s knowledge of the Bible and love for working with kids will make this a fun and unique class that will equip them with the necessary tools for their future in Christ.
SNL – Serve ‘n’ Learn
Are you looking for a fun and meaningful way to spend your Saturday? Come join us at Christ the Good Shepherd Food pantry. After the food pantry service, we get together for a spiritual talk and then set out for a walk in our community. Our walk enables us to hand out food and pray for our neighbors that are not able to come to us.
Come join us every Saturday!
Our vision for helping the community is expanding and that means there will be more opportunities for you to help. If you, or someone you know, are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
