At First Baptist, missions are very important to us. We love opportunities to share the love of Christ with our community and the world. Each year, we have several opportunities to give and to go.
Club 180 Ministry exists to minister to the spiritual, emotional, and physical needs of kids, youth, and families in rural Eastern Kentucky at the base of the Appalachian Mountains. By offering activities, events, Bible studies, and mentoring for both kids and parents, Club 180 Ministry brings hope to those that struggle.
Next Door Ministry
The Next Door Ministry provides physical, emotional, and spiritual rehabilitation for women in crisis from drug addiction, alcohol addiction, mental illness, trauma, and/or incarceration. They equip them for lives of wholeness and hope, with Christ-centered compassionate care.
Every month the women of FBCG do a Girls Night In on the 3rd Saturday of the month. Our women minister to the residents at The Next Door through fellowship, prayer, and sharing Christ.
The FBCG LA mission team will be working with Zach Drake, pastor at Santa Monica Church, to help with the Los Angeles VBS this year. Zach and Santa Monica church are a church that we are very interested in forming a lasting partnership with in the LA area.
This summer, Santa Monica Church is putting on 2 events back to back. The first event is called Kid-Lympics and is a large scale field day type of event that they due for children in the community. The 2nd event that they will be doing is VBS. Each night they are wanting to feed the kids and the parents that come to pick the kids up in hopes of fostering conversations and to build relationships within the community.
Room in the Inn
Since 1986, Room In The Inn has been a community of people bound together to offer shelter and compassion to people experiencing homelessness. Local congregations open their doors to welcome guests in the winter months.
Room In The Inn’s winter shelter program runs November 1 – March 31 every year. Congregations host groups once a week, once a month, or just during the coldest months of January and February when the temperatures are dangerously low.
