Missions and Evangelism Programs
We conduct mission activities and evangelism through the Church staff, members, facilities, funds, time, and through cooperative efforts with the broader community and other faith partners.
We engage with a number of community and denominational partners in responding to special needs and providing services to our community. We support various community based organizations that provide food, shelter and clothing throughout our community. We also support mission and relief agencies that are responding to human needs globally. Additionally, we host various community support groups that meet weekly in our building.
Opportunities for Service
The Missions Committee would like the congregation to know of the following service opportunities.
Food and Friends food delivery
The mission of Food & Friends is to foster a community caring for men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS, cancer and other life-challenging illnesses by preparing and delivering specialized meals and groceries in conjunction with nutrition counseling. They are located at 219 Riggs Rd NE, Washington DC 20011. and their phone number is 202-269-6835. Their location is close to the Fort Totten Metro Station. Volunteers can drive or take Metro and Food and Friends will pick them up from the Fort Totten Metro Station when they call the phone number above.
Weekday Food preparation at Martha's Table on certain Fridays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
We look forward to working together. Thank you.
FBC Mission and Evangelism Committee
Throughout his ministry, Christ commanded us to love one another. While First Baptist strives to follow this command in many ways, one particular way is through a love offering that is collected on the first Sunday of every month. The special offering, collected at the end of the service, goes to a fund administered by the life deacons, to provide temporary assistance to individuals in need of food, clothing, or other essential items.
