Blue Heart Ministry supplies basic needs for children who have been brought into the police station for their safety from volatile situations.

We partner with the New Braunfels Police Department to provide items such as snacks, blankets, diapers, baby formula, and clothing. This team is currently organizing a small room that has been granted to the Crime Victims Liaisons at the police station that will provide easy access & storage for the donated items.

Please pray for:                      

  • Pray for God’s protection of children, that whatever situation is causing them to be misplaced is resolved swiftly without any harm to anyone.

  • Pray for children who have to live in fear, that their home becomes a place of safety, peace, and stability.

  • Pray that FBCNB become more involved with New Braunfels Police and our Crime Victims Liaisons, Priscilla and Lisa, by showing our love of Jesus to those from a traumatic experience. 

 


**Our police officers love when we provide snacks for them too.**
For questions about this ministry or to donate any of these items,

Many North American cities could be called pre-Christian. In the midst of this, God is bringing the nations to our shores and offering unprecedented opportunities for the gospel. The North American Mission Board (NAMB) sees a mission field that needs the hope of the gospel, and with your partnership, they’re committed to taking this hope to cities, small towns, and college campuses. Your prayers and gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering provide support for more than 5,000 missionaries. These men and women are planting new churches in unreached communities and reaching out to meet needs through compassion ministries. Every day, lives are being impacted and transformed. First Baptist supports the NAMB with a special offering each year at Easter and collaborates with various North American missionaries through periodic mission trips and projects.
