In addition to supporting the CBF Disaster Response, Second wanted to participate in the Houston relief with a direct, hands-on mission opportunity for our people. There may be other ways we respond in the future, but a current project is a book drive for the schools which were destroyed during this hurricane.

The Houston school district had over 35 campuses flooded as a result of Harvey. Many of them were total losses. The amount of books and resources lost is devastating. South Main Baptist Church has volunteered to be the drop-off location for any donations people make for relief. If anyone wants to donate books for these schools, the church is making several available options.

Send books to South Main Baptist Church, c/o Dolores Radar Book Drive, 5100 Main Street, Houston, TX 77002. You can send gently used books or new books via mail, or order through and send them as a gift. 2BC will have a collection spot in the Welcome Center Red Wagon donations for these books if you choose not to mail them yourself.

Order books from Scholastic Book Club account whose class code is KJZ2N. This order will be open through September 30.

Our children’s mission classes are collecting books to be sent to South Main. Please only donate books appropriate for elementary age children in new or like new condition.

Fall Retreat Coming in November!

The Details
When: November 10-12
Where: Miracle Hills Ranch, Bethany, MO
Who: All students in 6th-12th grade
Cost: $75

The Rundown
Fall is officially here, which means Fall Retreat is on its way! We'll spend a few glorious fall days enjoying nature, taking a break from the stress of the semester, and expanding our relationships with each other and God. 

At Miracle Hills, which is about an hour north of Liberty, we'll get the chance to experience hayrides, bonfires, ACG's (All CAMP Games!), s’mores, and, of course, paintball. It's all the fun of Fall wrapped up in a single weekend! We'll also use this time to grow spiritually and develop a stronger understanding of our faith and a deeper connection with each other.

We will leave the evening of Friday, Nov. 10 and return the afternoon of Sunday, Nov. 12. The cost is $75, which will cover all the expenses of the weekend. Online payment is not open right now but hopefully will be soon. Feel free to pay by check or cash at this time.
