Benevolence & Resources for Assistance

Buechel Park Baptist Church Resources

FELLOWSHIP MEALS – Wednesdays, March  1 – 29, 2023 at 5:30 PM. All are welcome to join us for our potluck meals, even if they cannot contribute to the meal. Bible studies or other discussions of faith follow these meals.
GARDEN MINISTRY – Seasonal – Summer & Fall. Buechel Park members and friends grow fresh fruits and vegetables. Much of the produce is donated to local organizations for distribution, but we do have pickup times at the church for any who are in need. More information will be provided here as we near the 2023 harvest season. 
SENIOR NUTRITIONBuechel Park is one of the many sites for the Senior Nutrition Program, a part of the Louisville Metro Community Action Partnership. This site is open Monday-Friday from 9:30 am – 1:00 pm for lunch and activities.  Participants (age 60 and older) must make a reservation/sign-up the day before they attend; cost is a sliding scale after initial paperwork has been completed. Volunteers with Meals on Wheels prepare and deliver hot lunches daily to people who are homebound. For more information, visit here.
BENEVOLENCE MINISTRY – Limited funds are sometimes available to provide financial aid for basic, short-term or emergency needs to local persons who are in need on an urgent basis. This is intended as a source of last resort, to be used when all other possibilities of help have been explored. Buechel Park Baptist Church does not discriminate between applicants based on upon race, color, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, age, geographic territory, or disability.
