Soles for Souls Shoe Drive
For many years, Scottsdale Bible Church has committed to providing new back-to-school shoes for more than 600 kids enrolled in the Neighborhood Ministries Kids Club program. For many of these children, this pair of shoes may be the only one they receive all year, and for some, it may be their first-ever pair of new shoes. We will be giving out packets to the congregation in early July, but there are many volunteer opportunities before that time.

If you would like to volunteer to help prepare for this outreach, please email our Missions & Me team at mandm@scottsdalebible.com and let them know what days you are available and if you prefer administrative responsibilities, hands-on involvement or both. We especially need Spanish speakers for measuring days and distribution days.

Important dates:

  • Kids Club camp: June 18-29
  • Measuring dates: June 20-21
  • Packet prep: June 25-29
  • Packet distribution: July 7/8 and July 14/15
  • Shoe collection: July 14/15 and July 21/22
  • Sorting: July 23-27 or July 30–August 3
  • Loading shoes: August 3
  • Distribution day: August 4

Safe Families is a ministry where parents experiencing a temporary crisis can arrange for their children to stay with a Christian host family while they address the issues that led to their situation. Biological parents maintain full custody of their children and host families are encouraged to interact with the parents for encouragement and support. Safe Families hosts include singles and married couples at every life stage, all of whom simply decide to make room in their home for a child needing a safe place. The arrangement is temporary (average 31 days) and is facilitated by a Safe Families coach who makes sure everyone is moving forward.  How can you serve the Safe Families ministry?  Be a Safe Families host family and bring a child into your home. Or, be a family coach and walk alongside the birth family to meet their goals. If you’re interested in one of these opportunities, please contact Molly Browne. For more information check out this video and the local Safe Families website.

CarePortal brings the needs of hurting children and families in our community to our attention. Through the CarePortal technology, our church can connect with real-time needs that Arizona Department of Child Safety (DCS) workers uncover. DCS workers submit the prevention need and the church becomes aware of this need through an email. Individuals then have an opportunity to respond directly to families who are in crisis. To learn more visit careportal.org or take a few minutes to watch these videos CarePortal Video and You’re Worth It. Please contact Melissa Markus if you have additional questions or would like to participate.


We have the privilege of partnering with numerous faith-based organizations who are meeting the needs of our community, from mentoring at-risk kids, feeding the homeless, reaching out to  the incarcerated to providing adoption and foster care services. Contact localoutreach@scottsdalebible.com or 480.824.7243 for more information on our ministry partners.

Arizona Tax Credit Opportunities

Arizona taxpayers have an opportunity to redirect a portion of their state tax dollars to organizations providing help to others. Under the Arizona Charitable Tax Credit, households can reduce their direct tax liability by $800 for couples or $400 for individuals when they give to qualifying non-profits in the community. Under the Arizona Foster Care Tax Credit, the amount is doubled to $1,000 and $500 when giving to a qualifying foster care organization.

Scottsdale Bible partners with several faith-based non-profits that qualify for these tax credits. The organizations listed here qualify for these tax credits. When you make a contribution to one of these ministry partners, you not only benefit from a dollar-for-dollar tax credit, but you also help support the wonderful work they are doing to restore wholeness and demonstrate Jesus’ love and grace to the adults, children and families they serve.

Please consider how you can make a difference in the lives of others by taking advantage of the Arizona Charitable and Foster Care Tax Credits. For more information, click here.


Thanks to the generosity of Winter Wonder guests, Scottsdale Bible was able to bless Yavapai Elementary School with gifts for every student, gift cards for teachers and staff, and a mobile computer lab with 30 computers and 10 tablets. Watch the Fox 10 News coverage of the assembly with The Be Kind People Project here.
