The church is commissioned to take the Gospel both locally and globally as we we make disciples of Jesus Christ (Acts 1:8 & Matthew 28:19-20). Our Domestic Outreach efforts focus on expressing the love and truth of Jesus Christ in our local community.
Our prayer is that through our involvement in our community, people will take note that Jesus' followers are full of compassion and contribute to the well-being of our community. While our partnership with some ministries is on a church-wide level, our vision is for each individual member of Derwood Bible Church to actively and intentionally love our neighbor, as Jesus taught. Love intentionally, and love well.
Two Sundays per year, we cancel our regular Sunday service and go out in the community to serve. We do this through various service events throughout our area. These Sundays offer everyone an opportunity to put their faith in action and connect with our community. A wide variety of events are offered so that there is a place for everyone! You’re invited to join us for our next Salt Sunday!

Every child has a story. For 1.5 million American children, that story is filled with the abandonment, loneliness, and shame that comes from having a mom or dad in prison. At Angel Tree, we find ways to reach out to these children, by sharing Christ's love with them at Christmas and by developing year-round relationships.
In the end, it's so much more than giving Christmas gifts-it's about restoring families.
