Jesus calls us to Celebrate our life in him through Participating in God’s mission and being TRANSFORMED by God and TRANSFORMING the world through Jesus. One way to Participate at FBC is by serving with one of our mission partners each month.
The options listed below for sign-up are regularly recurring commitments to wonderful, Jesus-centered ministries that provide hope by meeting real needs in the greater Athens area. Join us as we Celebrate, Participate, & are Transformed through God.
Many children in Clarke County schools are eligible to receive free or reduced-price lunch, a crucial meal that disappears in the summer. Smart Lunch, Smart Kid ensures that these children are fed in the summer and on school breaks. Members of FBC will join forces with Milledge Avenue Baptist to serve this vital ministry. We will prepare sandwich lunches then deliver them to children in their Clarke County neighborhoods on Wednesdays May 31 and July 19 from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Our congregation hosts guests from the Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens six times a year for one week. Volunteers are needed to provide meals, transportation, activities, and spend the night with our guests. You may sign up online or on the Mission Board in the church hallway. First timers will be paired with folks who have experience.
