At SCBC, we believe the Gospel is good news that transforms both human lives and the communities where we live and work. That’s why, in addition to our global mission work, we partner with several local non-profit organizations that are actively working to meet the needs of our community in Santa Cruz.

If you are interested in serving our community through local organizations, check out the service opportunities below, fill out a form, or email us to find out how else we’re serving the local community.

Dress A Dude

We lovingly hand-make shorts for boys, infant through young adult, in need all over the world. Shorts are requested by (and delivered by) missionaries in the name of Jesus (Isaiah  58:7). Sewing kits are available in the lobby to take home and finish. We meet to work on shorts every Friday in a local home and every 3 months at SCBC. Sewers are welcome as well as non-sewers – we have lots to do!! Connect
