The goal of First Baptist Church Missions and Ministry Council 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, responding with aid to local and regional disasters, and by answering the needs of members in our church to ensure they do not suffer alone or in silence.  We also reach beyond our nation through church partnerships with fellow Christians in Cuba and medical/dental/vision care for the people of Haiti.

Room in the Inn
FBCA partners with RITI twice a year to provide shelter for up to 12 women. Each week, a different congregation opens its facilities to welcome the women as guests, offering a warm safe place for them as they work hard to move forward to permanent housing. The simple goal is to keep women without homes from sleeping on the street and risking their safety. The greater goal is to build caring, supportive relationships with them, one week at a time. Volunteers needed for five teams: provide meals, over-night stay, set-up and break down, hosts, provide transportation. Contact: Dorothy Porter: Dorothy Porter at 778.2010. Approx. 72 volunteers are needed to participate.
Date: February 25 - March 4, 2018
