The goal of First Baptist Church Missions Committee is to develop opportunities to for our members to grow in their faith by helping others. We become stronger by practicing mercy and justice. This work is at the heart of our church's mission statement, which sets our congregational goal to be an influence "at the intersection of the culture and the Kingdom of God."We seek to do this with a focus on urban outreach projects: providing meals for the hungry, job assistance to Slavic nationals, responding with aid to local and regional disasters, and by answering the needs of members in our church to ensure they do not alone or in silence.  For more information on mission-related activities or our Missions Committee, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Gently Used Reading Glasses Needed
Our neighbors at the Buncombe County Jail have a need that we can meet easily. Inmates often request magnifying glasses to use for reading. You may have some around the house or within easy reach at the checkout line. Watch for the box near the Sign-Up Shack and share your gently used reading glasses. We’ll get them to the right places.

Green Bag Food Collection beginning August 28
Green food bags will be placed in the Sanctuary and Atrium. Please take a bag home and fill with the donated items requested on the bag and return the following Sunday to church. Donations will go to ABCCM.
