Our statewide missions focuses on our state of North Carolina. Our calling has included many trips to the flood damaged coastal region of Grifton NC. The “Family on Missions” ministry team went to Morehead City NC in 2011. A team from FBC went to Bertie County to work with the Samaritan’s Purse in the tornado damaged area near the coast in 2011. In 2013 several families from FBC came together to answer the call for help in the Catawba region due to the flood that damaged so many homes.
Our regional missions have include Summerville WV(2008), Columbiana AL(2009). These trips have included construction on houses of needy people, VBS in local communities during the day and working on houses with YOM for elderly people. Whole families got to participate in these trips, Mom & Dad as well as children. Family on Missions is a valuable tool in mentoring children. There is no better way to demonstrate missions like learning from and with Mom and Dad.
Our Youth traveled to Philadelphia PA. in 2009 and in 2012 our Youth went to Huntington WV. to work with YOM on house remodeling due to recent tornadoes. July 2004 saw our youth travel to Washington DC and work in the inner city projects with kids at a local YMCA. They did musical concerts in the park and held a VBS for children of a local neighborhood.
The Baptist Children’s Home is another way we support or statewide missions. They provide homes for children who have no family or home of their own. Our church members collect paper goods and non-perishables to send to these houses. We have made several trips to the Thomasville NC location to take our kids and youth and allow them to take part in the support for this great ministry.
We are pleased to support Annie Armstrong offering which provides support for over 5000 home missionaries.
