Dear JCBC Family,

At JCBC we believe in a God who’s love is on the move. Always! As we discern where God is calling each of us, we mobilize that calling in our daily lives and as we meet people along our way. That is why I am so grateful every day, knowing that you are present in your neighborhoods, places of work, schools, and all of the places you journey alongside others.

In addition, we intentionally mobilize to serve others through local, regional, and global missions. In the month of March, we place a special emphasis on the missional work we do together. This guide is a resource for you as we serve together as a church and for you as an individual in your own neighborhood.

Our hope is that you will discover an opportunity that uses your own God-given gifts and talents in March, and honestly, anytime, as you share God’s love with others through care and service.

The 2024 Annual Mission Offering

Every year, we collect a special mission offering that is “over and above” the gifts given to our regular budget. This special offering is used to support several of our mission partners, as well as, provide special funds that are available for our Missions Committee to respond to urgent needs around the world and in our community. For 2024, our Missions Committee, with approval from our JCBC Stewardship Committee, are glad to share that our Annual Mission Offering recipients are:

CBF Global Missions – 30%
Global Crisis Response – 25%
Presidio Missions – 20%
Local Missions – 20%
CBF Georgia – 5%

You can donate to the Annual Mission Offering online at and choose the Annual Mission Offering under “Select a Fund.” You can use an Annual Missions Offering envelope found in our worship venues or at one of our physical giving stations. Or simply write, Annual Mission Offering, in the memo line on a check that you mail to the church or put in the offering plate.

God will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you
have helped his people and continue to help them.”
~ Hebrews 6:10

Love Where You Live

JCBC members are mobilized for mission! But to follow the example of Jesus, we need to do more than simply write a check or participate in a one-time service day. We need to love our neighbors as a part of our daily lives. Here are some ways to get to know and love your neighbors every day!

Visit with an elderly or lonely neighbor. Stop by just to chat or play a board game.

Be a joyful influence. Spread good news, peace, and kindness on social media.

Write a letter or send a card. Send a thoughtful note to a friend or family member to let them know how much you love them and God loves them.

Take a treat or flower to neighbors. Bake or buy treats to share or take a flower to say hello to your neighbors.

Host a neighborhood block party. Welcome the Spring weather by gathering neighbors for an outdoor party!

Show your appreciation. Thank the people who pick up your trash, deliver your mail, or bring packages to your home with thank you cards or bottled waters left by your mailbox or front door.

Reach out to mend a broken relationship. Forgive someone.

Pray. Pray for a welcoming and tender heart toward others.

Donate items. Donate food, clothing, or personal care items to your local agencies who help others.

Volunteer. Donate your time to serve others through JCBC or a local agency.

Share a Meal. Invite your neighbors or new friends to share a meal in your home or meet at a local restaurant or coffee shop. It does not have to be fancy!

What is your idea? We would love to hear how you or your family loved your neighbors!
