As a disciple, I am a friend to the community.
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we are called to walk in simplicity and to engage the community in such a way as to lead them to the saving knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In LSBC, we reach out to the community through various avenues.
Bethesda C.A.R.E (Community Assistance and Relationship Enrichment) is the community arm of LSBC. Through it, we have set up satellite centres in Blk 242, Blk 603 and Blk 574 to run effective and affordable services to benefit and serve our heartlanders. Whether it is within homes, in schools, at the void decks or at its service centres, Bethesda Care brings quality social services to the community, committed to care in practical ways.
We have a special community services, that is NET (NET stands Near Enough to Touch). We believe that through NET, we are closing the gap between the church and the community, and that we would be near enough to share the gospel when the need arises.
