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.

Monthly Focus

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.

This month:

TUTU DESK

For the month of August, we are widening our focus and highlighting an opportunity to help children in sub-Saharan Africa experience success in school. As you have probably heard, our church has committed to furnish 1000 lap desks for 1000 children at an African school through the Tutudesk campaign. Each desk is US$20. To date, we have received donations to purchase 680 desks… so we are two-thirds of the way to our goal! (Thank you!) Instead of bringing items to fill our collection bins this month, we are instead asking you to make a gift to our Tutudesk campaign. As our community’s children and teachers go back to school this month, let’s remember the children and teachers in Africa and complete our goal of 1000 desks by the end of August!
