community outreach events

Bell Shoals Church of Christ Benevolence Programs assist those in the community in need with these Community Outreach Events:

food and clothing distribution

If you are in need of assistance we welcome you to come to the Hope Closet which operates on Thursdays between 6:30 and 7:30 P.M., except those Thursdays which fall on a holiday. The Hope Closet is located behind the main building at 2908 Bell Shoals Road. You will be given time to search for clothing and household items that meet your family's needs, and will be given a bag of groceries. We ask that each family only attend once a month for assistance.
