Jonah Back Pack Ministry
The Jonah Bag Ministry is a ministry that provides food to children who are without food on the weekends and on school holidays.The ministry began as a challenge in the Jonah Biblestudy to help the community.
The Bible study members as well as the WMU MY MISSION group organized and sponsor this ministry.
The groups collect individually wrapped food and prepare 100 bags per week.The bags are delivered to local schools and then the schoolpasses the food bags out to the children on Friday afternoon.The children who receive the food bags are chosen by the school by their need.When the children are out of school for a long weekend or
holiday, more food is placed in the bag to keep them from being hungry while school is out.
Also if the Jonah bag recipient has siblings in the house
extra items are placed in the bag.A card is placed in each bag the simply states “SOMEONE LOVES YOU”.
Donations are always accepted for this Ministry
Memorial Fund Ministry
First Baptist receives memorial contributions given in memory of deceased loved ones. We disperse these funds through a committee of church members who interview each Thursday morning from 9:30 A.M. – 11:00 A.M. These funds are used to help those in need of help with utilities, medicines, or other personal needs.
