Penny Project & Backpack program

Friends, you have been so generous in donating foods for the Backpack Program. The Bd of
appreciates your generosity. We do hope you will continue to assist this very worthy mission we have chosen to help feed children that otherwise would go hungry on the weekends. - Missions Board Mission
One Great Hour of Sharing addresses Food Needs Worldwide.
Malnutrition leads to nearly a third of all childhood deaths before age 5. During a child’s first 1,000 days, proper nutrition is vital. Without it, the risk is high for life-long health issues like blindness, developmental disabilities and organ shutdown. So, what’s the answer? A community garden? Training on feeding infants healthy food? The truth is, no single effort will eradicate hunger. In some areas, we use agricultural solutions to help families grow healthier food. Yet in reality most of the world’s poor buy their food, which prompts us to look deeper at the root causes for hunger. Sometimes a clean water source will help. Other times a discrimination blocks access to employment, meaning a small business grant or loan in the short term can help a whole family eat for years. Our gifts to One Great Hour of Sharing make us part of the solution to worldwide hunger needs.
You are invited to bring your children to the nursery during the service for a safe and Christian environment so that you may more fully experience Worship. Following today’s service please come to enjoy coffee, refreshments and fellowship in the Great Room.
For your convenience hearing devices are available. Please see an usher for assistance
Visitors - welcome to
. We are glad you joined us and hope you’ll feel at home, as we celebrate our faith and praise God together. In the pew in front of you, you will find a “get-to-know-you” card. Please take a moment to fill it out and place it in the offering plate. First Baptist Church
