Commit to our local community

Chin Ministry - The Chin are a group of people who are refugees from their home country of Burma due to persecution for their Christian faith. In all ways, they are trying to assimilate into our society, where they can practice their faith without fear of persecution. FBC along with several other churches in the area are helping them with housing, furniture, language needs, etc.

Christian Community Action Projects – CCA is a non-profit organization that serves families in crisis by providing food, housing, medical care and vocational training, along with spiritual and personal support.  First Baptist Church members are highly involved in numerous ministries that are coordinated through the Minister of Missions and the Christian Life and Ministry team and CCA.  Some of these ministries are:

 

  1. Periodic food drives  
  2. Back to School Program – providing the children served by CCA the necessary school supplies and clothes to go back to school  
  3. Thanksgiving and Christmas Food drive – typically focused on a single food item to help build meal baskets for these holiday meals 
  4. The Christmas Giving Tree – We provide Christmas gifts to the underprivileged children in our community.
