Based on Jesus’ command in Matthew 5.16 to let our light shine before others so they may see our good deeds and praise our Father in heaven, Unleashed Community Ministries is an intentional effort to share His love by serving and loving our community. Whereas this mindset is encouraged in our daily, individual lives, organized projects are made available to be involved with.
Horrell Hill Elementary
Beulah has an official partnership with Horrell Hill Elementary School. Every year we host a breakfast for teachers and staff near the start of the school year, as well as providing them with a small token of appreciation. We also serve them in various ways throughout the school year at different school events (Field Day, School Carnival, Reading Days). Other opportunities for service are available as well. Join in the fun by volunteering to serve the children, teachers, staff, and administration of Horrell Hill!
Richland Village Apartments
Beulah also partners with Richland Village, a local government-assisted apartment complex in various ways. Our involvement with them has included transported their kids to our Vacation Bible School, hosting a Backyard Bible Club at their complex, providing Back-to-School bags for them, and serving as volunteers at their annual National Night Out in various ways.
Lower Richland High School
Beulah has a great relationship with our local high school. Beginning in 2012, Beulah began to provide the pre-game meal for the Lower Richland High School football team before each game, as well having the opportunity to share God’s Word with them at these meals. This ministry has led to other opportunities of service and support to the school. You can be a part of this ministry each season, as well as serve the school in other ways.
Trunk or Treat
Each year on October 31, Beulah hosts Trunk or Treat on the church campus for the kids in our community. This is an intentional alternative event for our community on that day. Traditionally, there have been more people on our campus on this day than any other day of the year, and Beulah gets to opportunity to serve them in so many ways that night. Decorated vehicles full of candy, games, prizes, costume contests, inflatables, food, music, seeking to get the gospel of Jesus into each kid’s hand, and so much more fills this night and makes this one of the best nights of the year!
Easter Egg Hunt
Each year around Easter, Beulah hosts an Easter Egg Hunt for our community’s children. This event is full of egg hunts, candy, games, music, prizes, a gospel presentation, and a visit from the Easter Bunny!
Vacation Bible School
During the summer each year, Beulah hosts Vacation Bible School on campus. This week is one of the most exciting weeks during the year in the Unleashed Children’s Ministry. Community kids are invited to join us for an incredible week of Bible study! Each VBS week has a theme, and the kids enjoy watching our building transform into that theme, while they participate in crafts, recreation, snacks, music, videos, tons of fun that go along with that theme…and a few surprises along the way! The VBS week ends with a program for parents, family, and friends to come watch their children perform the songs from the week, quote their verses, watch the video highlights from the week, and enjoy food and fellowship after the program.

Unleashed Student Ministry Involvement
The Unleashed Student Ministry provides opportunities for student involvement in Unleashed Community Ministries activities. Along with serving in the above opportunities, USM student involvement has included volunteering in the local children’s home, collecting canned goods for the hungry, adopting families for Christmas, visiting the local nursing home, passing out free bottled water at various spots in the community, and delivering community baskets to businesses in our community.
