Missions

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

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.

Mission: Denver

In June 2018, we traveled to Denver to partner with Journey Point Church in hosting a kids sports camp. Join us in praying for Chris, Libby & their family as they strive to serve and make connections in their community of Stapleton, CO. We will be joining them again this summer, so let us know if you are interested in serving on our 2019 Mission: Denver team!

Mission: LA

Pray for Zach Drake and his congregation of Santa Monica Church as they seek to minister to lost people in Santa Monica, California. We have partnered with them several years through helping host various Vacation Bible Schools and other events for their 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.

Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home

Tennessee Baptist Children’s Homes believes every child should experience the stable, nurturing love of a family. They also believe the most crucial thing we can share with a child is the love and hope of Christ. Holding these two convictions, they provide Christ-centered homes for children in hard places — children whose families are not currently able to provide the day to day care they need. They train and develop evangelical Christians to be houseparents and foster parents with the mission of not only providing safety and stability but showing Christ’s love to each child who comes into their care. Whether children are in foster care or have been voluntarily placed in one of their on-campus homes by families seeking help, they are committed to helping children and families thrive. Our church is thrilled to partner with them in their mission!
