Not only have we been gifted by the Lord to serve His church, we have all been uniquely equipped to make a difference in a world without Christ. We do this in 2 ways:
As a whole Church body, we accomplish this in 4 large-scale projects:
Our Winter Medical Clinic: this year we will launch this on January 25 at FBCJackson (218 College Ave)
Our Serve Projects: This will occur in early April of this year. All our Groups / Classes are taking on a ministry or service project on a day of Easter week. We're planning on deploying all our church body to engage Jackson in acts of kindness and evangelistic efforts.
Our Fall Festival: This occurs on the week of or week prior to the start of school. Here we reach out to our community parents and children in preparation for the school year. We'll provide school supplies, some family pics, hair cuts, some food and a guaranteed fun time for Jackson city.
Our Vacation Bible School: This occurs in June, and is out intentional outreach specifically to area kids. While this takes a different form each year, we focus our energies to get the gospel to children who may not have a relationship with our Lord.
Summer Fun Days: FBCJackson hosts several Summer fun days for the community to rub shoulders with FBCJ members. Outdoor movies, a day at the pool, evening BBQs, and outdoor get-togethers are a low-key way to provide opportunties for FBCJ to serve community-life in Jackson.
Our Small Groups & Classes: We ask that all of our small groups participate in an intentional service project designed and implemented by the small groups themselves, or in coordination with the church staff/office. We encourage each small group or class to serve together quarterly.
