BHPC has many additional opportunities for you to help serve those in need. We seek to pair worship with mission and have developed a family-friendly program called Smart Sacks where after church each Sunday, you and your family can help put together food to feed those in need. Additionally, we are currently helping resettle our sixth refugee family. We support volunteer programs throughout the DMV, including:
Smart Sacks. Immediately following the 10:30AM Worship Service, all are welcome to help put together food donated by Manna Food, which will then be delivered to Montgomery County Public Schools, where distribution of the food to families in need occurs. Join us after worship right outside Memorial Hall – all ages welcome!
“Feeding Families” Project with Faith Presbyterian Church. We are seeking volunteers to help Faith’s team on February 18, April 15, and June 17. Each time, volunteers pack 50 grocery bags at the church in Anacostia and distribute them at the front corner of the church property. Families are welcome to volunteer if all members can equally participate. Please review all the dates and slots on the Sign-Up Genius link to sign up.
Interfaith Refugee Family Initiative: Many Afghan refugee families will be resettled in the coming weeks as they are moved from the military base where most have them have been since August, and we are seeking donations to help furnish their new housing.

Meals for Becky’s House. Volunteers are needed to provide dinners to the 8 women living at Becky’s House during 2023. Becky’s house, managed by Interfaith Works, provides housing for women who would otherwise be homeless. For many years, BHPC members have been delivering dinner to a homeless shelter the second Monday of each month. Gourmet cooking is not required, just a wholesome meal, delivered before 6:00 p.m. to the shelter in Rockville’s Aspen Hill area (can be delivered on Sunday for the next day). This is ideal for a family mission project. Delivery is contactless. Please sign up using this link, or email Kate Picard at email@example.com or Jennifer Kline at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
