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.

Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another. Long hours sitting in the Chemotherapy room can get lonely and dull without things to do. This month we are collecting items for patients at the Greenville Health System Cancer Institute. These items include pens, pencils, ginger candy, and gamebooks including but not limited to Sudoku, Crosswords, and word searches. Please place these items in the boxes located around the church.
