Missions at First
Missions at First Baptist Greenville is a way of approaching the world. It is Imago Dei, it is Namaste, it is the appreciation that we all belong to God and if we look hard enough, we might find Christ in each person we meet, including ourselves. At First Baptist Greenville, missions involves members of all ages engaging in ministry with partners in our backyard, in Cuba, in Haiti and places in between. Whether partnering with GAIHN to welcome homeless families to our church, partnering with our sister congregation in Guanjay, Cuba to encourage the growth of the Patio Project, partnering with our neighbors in Nicholtown to provide quality summer camp, partnering with the Living Hope Mission in Cap Haitien, Haiti to support local schools and churches, partnering with local ministries through our annual Operation Inasmuch day or partnering in one of the many other opportunities we offer, missions at First Baptist Greenville is about people.
Missions at First Baptist Greenville encourages the development of individuals’ spiritual gifts as new ministries “bubble up” from the passions of members and their willingness to be servant leaders. Missions at First Baptist Greenville respects genuine reflection and the depth of experience we can have when we expand our comfort zones and get to know our brothers and sisters in other parts of the world, other parts of Greenville and within our church family. It celebrates that we can encounter God through these encounters with others. For more information on getting involved with missions at First Baptist Greenville, contact Laura Stout.
Each month we highlight a local organization or church mission partner and collect items needed to support their ministry. Please bring your donations to the collection boxes located throughout the church, where volunteers will collect and deliver them.
During the month of May, we are collecting snack items for the 2016 Officer Allen Jacobs Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T) Summer Camp. G.R.E.A.T is an evidence-based and effective gang and violence prevention program taught by Greenville Police Officers. The program is intended to immunize children against delinquency, violence, and gang membership immediately before the prime ages of introduction into gangs. In our continued effort to support our local community we will be collecting snacks for the children attending camp this year – June 13-17 at Sterling Elementary School.
Please place the following items in the purple bins around the church:
- Chewie Bars
- Squeezable Applesauce Packs
- 100 calorie snack packs
- Capri Suns
- Juice boxes
