Opportunities to Help Others PDF Print E-mail

At First Baptist Church, we strive to show God's love to others in many ways.  One of these ways is by meeting the needs of others.  This page is updated when we receive new requests from various sources that are needing help.  We hope that this will provide you a place to serve.
