Care Bags 

“Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.”  James 1:27 (NLT)

We are looking for ministry partners to help reach out into our community.  How?  By helping put together “Care Bags”.  These bags are an opportunity to gift and start spiritual conversations with the most vulnerable in our city.  The bags are relatively inexpensive to put together and can include items such as cards with words of encouragement, various snacks, candy, other non-perishable food items, and some toiletries.  All the items can be purchased at a Dollar Tree or 99 Cents Only Store.  This will give us an opportunity as disciples of Jesus to worship together, be in community, and unleash compassion.  We will set up a day to put together the bags and then plan on another day to go out and gift these bags while sharing the hope of Jesus Christ.  Please reach out to me if you are interested in this project.  Email me at

Would you be open to continue partnering with me as we transform Oceanside with the love of Jesus Christ this year?  Or how about meeting up to grab a coffee or share a meal?  Join me for “LIVE WITH BASILIO!”, my mid-week Bible study, online on Wednesdays at 4pm via Facebook Live (  This is for everyone!
