Our tradition of celebrating Pastor Jim’s birthday month with our canned fruit collection did not disappoint. Thanks to you, our generous congregation, along with our precious Day School families and AYMC members, we collected 2,739 cans of fruit during the month of September for the United Ministries Food Pantry!
First Baptist Greenville has a long history of supporting our neighbors in need by collecting canned fruit, and just because September is over doesn’t mean the collection has come to an end! We continue to collect canned fruit for United Ministries throughout the year. Remember to bring your donations anytime you’re on the FBG campus. Donation locations can be found in the Main Reception Area, Fellowship Hall Lobby and AYMC lobby.
A heartfelt thank you to our Fruit Collection Team and members of the Missions & Affiliations Committee for the time and energy they spent supporting this wonderful organization, and an extra-special thanks to our energetic Children’s Ministries and Preschool Ministries participants who helped load fruit into trucks with enthusiasm and love, so it could be delivered to United Ministries at the end of the month.
Thank you, FBG!
