OUTREACH MINISTRIES


Some of the ways First Baptist Church is seeking to serve our neighbors...


Food Pantry


Our Food Pantry is open to all families and individuals who need to supplement their grocery supplies.  We provide monthly opportunities on the Monday following the third Friday of each month, as well as special distributions for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  During June, July and August, our church donates extra supplies of peanut butter, jelly, cereals, and canned meals in order to accommodate families with kids at home all summer. Volunteers are always welcome!


Clothing Ministry

 

Gently used clothing for men, women and children is available for clients from our Food Pantry on the church premises at 2 Liberty Street. All clothing, coats, shoes, blankets, etc. are free of charge.

 

 

 

  

Appalachian Christmas Project

 

Each year, we decorate a small Christmas tree with the names, ages, and Christmas wishes of families who live in the Appalachians and cannot afford other gifts at Christmas.  We each choose a tag, purchase and wrap our gifts, and watch them get driven off to a special Christmas party in Kentucky where they are distributed to the families in need. 

Liberty Towers

 

We love ministering to our senior saints, many of whom live at the Liberty Towers. A Bible study is held there every Tuesday evening at 7:00.  Feel free to join us!

 

 

 

  

Operation Christmas Child

 

This ministry supports the Samaritan's Purse Christmas outreach by collecting packed Christmas boxes from the church and forwarding them to Samaritan's Purse for distribution to children around the world.

 

 

Outreach Sports

 

Indoor sports activities including sock soccer, kickball, volleyball, badminton, touch football, floor hockey and Foosball are offered to kids in grades K-8 during the winter months in the church gym.  High Schooler coaches are welcome, too!
