  • OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD 2020

As OCC 2020 Drop-Off week comes to a close, we would like to thank everyone who has participated. We didn't quite reach our church goal of 500 boxes, but we did well in the face of a pandemic as a community. First Baptist Church Drop-Off Location sent a total of 271 boxes. This number doesn't count boxes that our members packed on the Samaritan's Purse website. We don't have a way of knowing how many people packed this way, but we know many were. Thank you. 

This year we received:

  • One hundred one boxes from area churches, 21 boxes from our goal page.

  • Twenty-five boxes brought in by individuals.

  • One hundred twenty-four boxes packed for individuals

  • CHRISTMAS AT FIRST BAPTIST


Next Sunday, Dec 6th, Rebecca Peck will be our guest. Rebecca is an award      winning choral composer. She will be presenting several numbers with our choir.

    • Introducing SUPER SUNDAYS. Beginning January 3rd, we will have a revamped and reinvigorated Sunday school hour for our kids. We will bring the fun and energy of Wednesday night AWANA to Sunday mornings.

      • Sundays mornings will now feature large group breakfast, music, Bible story videos, and more in the fellowship hall. After large group assembly, kids will split off into their normal Sunday School classes and spend the last half of Sunday school with their teachers and classmates.

      • We will be in need of volunteers to assist with this ministry. Contact Colton if you’d like to help make Sunday mornings awesome for our kids!

CLOSING REMINDERS

Purpose. Remember, FBC Jackson exists to lead all people to become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. That hasn’t changed. So we want to encourage you to love your neighbor, share the gospel, and help us think of creative ways to minister to the community. It has been amazing to watch our church family and community respond to the needs and challenges of our time. Keep up the great work!

We love you and are praying for you every day.
