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 months of January and February, our church will collect baby items for Greenville’s Gift. Greenville’s Gift is a new 501(c)(3) non profit organization dedicated to clothing newborns in need in the Greenville community. While many babies are born to families who have the means to provide for them in terms of clothing and blankets, other families are unable to provide these necessary items. Greenville’s Gift works to bridge this gap and to meet their needs.
The objective of Greenville’s Gift is to collect gently used and new infant clothing and blankets from the Greenville Community and then gift these items to moms in financial need. Greenville’s Gift will rely on community agencies and local hospitals to identify the recipients. Local clinics and hospitals will present the gift bags to moms at the end of their pregnancy or during their stay in the hospital. The hope is to make new moms and babies feel celebrated and loved by the Greenville community by presenting beautifully wrapped gift bags filled with newborn essentials.
