We Need Your Help! Missions Update Nov-Dec 2020

Be a Part of God’s Mission in the World with Your Church Family!

Wondering what you can do to join FBC on its mission to love God and neighbor during this crisis? The FBC Missions Committee would like to have you join us in new opportunities to serve, even when while we are physically distant. Below you will find the current missions initiatives by our church, and you are invited to join us as we embody The Open Church – the church that doesn’t need to meet in a building to be God’s people!

Errands – Grocery, Supplies, and Medication Pickup/Dropoff

Are you able to get out and run errands like grocery pickup or prescriptions pickup at the pharmacy? Some in our church family need assistance with errands. If you can help, please call or email the church office and you will be added to a schedule for assistance.

This is for grocery, supplies, and medication pickups. These are call-in pickups and you may leave the items on the front porch. You do not have to go into the house. The church is making schedules for families in need. Know a family in need? Please contact the church!

Feeding First

Honoring Those on the Front Lines

First Baptist wants to send our support and love to those on the front lines – emergency personnel, hospital workers, educators, etc. during the quarantine. They are putting themselves at risk for us all. To that end, the Missions Committee and other church leadership have begun a feeding program, offering meals to those front line workers on their shifts.

We will be continuing the Feeding First program in the days and weeks to come. If you have ideas for the program or want to be involved in setting up the meals, you are encouraged to reach out to our Missions Committee Chairperson: Bobby Moore, or call/email the church office and your ideas will be forwarded to the Missions Committee.

Here are specific ways we need your help:

  • Is there somewhere you know of that could use a meal? Tell Bobby!
  • Give Generously to Missions Opportunities Fund so we can buy meals (see link below). Sponsor a typical meal for $120 (or donate for a half meal, or a couple of meals!)
  • Meal Delivery (safely, with masks & gloves!)
  • Provide Desserts/Drinks/Sides (Drop off no-contact at the church)

Meal Packing with the MHC Emergency Feeding Program

FBC’s Journey Small Group (young adults) and the Missions Committee invite you to join us as we volunteer with the MHC Emergency Feeding Program packing boxes with donated food to be handed out to those in need. We need a group of 10 or more to pack for two hours on the following dates/times:
Next Dates:
Saturday November 21st 3PM to 5PM
Saturday December 5th 3PM to 5PM
If you feel comfortable coming out to volunteer (masks and social distancing required), please call or email the church office to let us know you’re coming!
