We love our city, but we believe God loves it more. In our local outreach, we seek to answer Jesus’ call to “love our neighbors" in meaningful, and tangible ways. We believe God has a plan for our neighborhood, and we hope to take part in that work.

This year, GVBC will be shifting focus from reaching out to children globally with Operation Christmas Child to reaching out to children locally just down the street.

We will be providing every student at Gardena Chapman Elementary School a backpack filled with supplies. This will be a blessing to neighboring families and teachers as they begin this coming school year. If you'd like to participate, here's what to get:
-A Regular Sized Backpack
-Composition Book
-Pencil & Sharpener
-Colored Pencils

During Pickup Week, we will provide for you: a GVBC Tag, a Tissue Pack, and Glue Stick.

Pickup Week: Sun, July 4 – Sun, July 11
Dropoff Week: Sun, Aug 1 – Sun, Aug 8
