As the holiday season approaches, we are thrilled to announce Belle Isle Community Church's participation in Giving Tuesday—a global day of generosity! This year, on November 28th, we invite you to join us in spreading the spirit of generosity and gratitude.
We are focusing our efforts on supporting our sister church in Cuba, Iglesia Metodista Las Tunas. While the church is thriving, it faces significant economic challenges, with many community members living on just $20/month. Your generosity can make a meaningful impact by helping us expand and enhance the church property, enabling us to better serve a growing congregation and provide vital programs that further the message of hope.
Watch out for us to post a link on BICC's social media platforms on 11/28 to make a donation directly in support of Iglesia Metodista Las Tunas. Your contribution will play a crucial role in creating a positive impact and fostering a sense of community across borders.
Hanging of the Greens
Tuesday November 28th, starting at 10am
Come join the tradition of "sprucing" up the church as we prepare for the Advent season! The greens help to reflect our joy and symbolize the unchanging nature of God, reminding us of the everlasting life we find through Christ. We appreciate the help and will provide lunch.
