Mission Statement


To equip and operate an Internet-connected community computer lab in Stuart Gardens, training residents in the use of computers and the Internet, and building relationships in order to achieve the vision of SGCCC, by providing volunteer opportunities for Christians in Hampton Roads.

Description


The Stuart Gardens Community Computer Center is a program of the Stuart Gardens Community Outreach, which is in turn a project of Operation Breaking Through. Stuart Gardens is an at-risk community of 491 HUD-subsidized units. The Stuart Gardens Community Computer Center—a computer lab of networked Macintosh and Wintel computers with broadband access to the Internet— is staffed and supported by interested members of the larger community who wish to use their computer skills and spiritual gifts to encourage and benefit the residents of Stuart Gardens. School-age children are offered homework help and tutoring on computer usage and Internet research. Adults are provided with training in online job search skills, GED training, and other productive uses of the Internet. Older adults are familiarized with computers and the Internet in order to improve communication with younger generations, strengthening family bonds. Our operating hours are dependent on staffing, and we seek to add volunteers in order to open the Center additional days of the week.

Organizational Statement of Faith


SGCCC is an alliance of area evangelical and nondenominational churches. We believe: The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal future return to earth in power and glory. In the fall of man and the need for a Savior. In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a holy, wholesome life. The salvation of man is wholly a work of God's free grace and is not the work, in whole or in part, of human works or goodness or religious ceremony. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation, and thereby justifies them in His sight. Jesus Christ will come again to the earth - personally, visibly and bodily - to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
