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.
Imagine that your child is seriously ill or injured, and you must travel away from home and spend several weeks or months in a location where your child can get treatment. You need to be close to your child, but where will your family stay? What about meals? What about the extra costs? For families facing this situation, the Ronald McDonald House is the “home away from home” for families, so they can be close to their hospitalized child at little or no cost. Every Ronald McDonald House provides families with private bedrooms, playrooms for children, and home-cooked meals.
Greenville’s Ronald McDonald House is located across the street from the GHS Children’s Hospital. Families come to this location from around the upstate, from other southeastern states, and from foreign countries. Because the need is so great, the Ronald McDonald house is currently adding an additional twelve rooms. There is always a need for volunteers who serve in a variety of ways, including baking cookies, doing general office work, or helping with fundraising events. Have questions? Want to help? Contact Rose Woelker at (864) 235-0506 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the month of April, our church will be collecting the following items for the Ronald McDonald House:
- Heavy duty paper plates
- Disposable coffee cups with lids
- Gallon size zip lock bags
- Clorox disinfecting wipes (orange and lemon scented)
- Lysol disinfectant spray
You may place your donations in the purple collection bins located around the church. Thank you for your generosity!
