Where Can Those in Need Go for Help?

And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’ (Matthew 25:40).

As did the world in biblical times, Bowie today has many people with many needs. All those with needs around us are our neighbors, whom Jesus commanded we love as we love ourselves. Many churches, community partners, and volunteers in Bowie want to show the love and compassion of Jesus by helping to meet the needs of the people around them.

Where Can Those in Need Go for Help?

Our experience shows, however, that people with particular needs often don’t know where to go for help. We also know that many caring individuals would like to volunteer their assistance in some way but aren’t aware of local Bowie organizations to which they might give their time and talents. Further, sometimes groups in Bowie might miss opportunities to work together because they are not aware of each others’ activities.

We believe it is important to raise awareness of the types of care available by various organizations in Bowie.  This helps those in need to get help more easily. It also helps those providing care to attract volunteers and to more efficiently use their resources as they discover opportunities to work together with similar care providers.

Demonstrating practical CARE for people is an important step to being a lighthouse. In this area of the website, we refer to many caring resources. If you need help, we want you to go to these organizations and ministries to get the help you need.

How Can You Help? 

Or, if you are able and willing to help others in need, we invite you to help any of these organizations achieve their respective missions of care. And, if you are a local care provider, we hope you will use the information provided below to seek opportunities to leverage your efforts with those of others in the Bowie area.

In Bowie, each church pastor certainly must meet the needs of their own congregation.  Concurrently, however, the Light of the World Foundation also is challenging churches in Bowie (as well as in each American city) to show more outward evidence that churches and social services are working together in unity in reaching out to love their neighbors. Addressing this challenge, the Light of the World Foundation began the We Care Bowie Initiativein 2019.  

For an example of what you can do in Bowie, see the We Care Bowie Brochure (PDF).

We Care Bowie provides churches with the framework Bowie needs for developing and maintaining unifying relationships with other city churches and government and social services. Ultimately, this framework enables churches to efficiently coordinate church, non-profit, and governmental philanthropic organizations in showing Christ’s love to their neighbors.

The We Care Bowie Initiative has been approved and endorsed by Bowie churches, and by social and city government services. Recently, several pastors designated Community Care Coordinators (CCCs) to serve as members of the We Care Bowie Network

CCC roles and responsibilities include coordinating city church programs plus developing new care programs as needed in Bowie.  

We look forward to working with you to ‘help the least of these’ in Bowie.
