Looking for Your Kingdom Assignment?
Are you still looking for that perfect niche that matches your God given Gifts, experiences and passion?
The Missions Ministry is searching for those members who feel the calling to become involved in several new ministry opportunities in the Midland area. Those ministries are as follows:
Apostle Build. Each year, 12 local churches participate in the funding and construction of a new home for a low-income family through Habitat for Humanity. The project is appropriately named “Apostle Build”. Each of the 12 churches pick one weekend to assist in the construction. First Baptist Church will be helping again in October.
Expansion of our Food to Kids. We currently provide weekend food bags for an average over 200 kids at Sam Houston and Lamar Elementary schools during the regular school year. RAs and GAs have prepared the bags on Wednesday evenings to be delivered to the schools on Thursdays and distributed by the teachers at the end of the day on Friday.
Apartment Ministry. We are in the process of expanding FBC’s apartment ministry in two local apartment complexes. The focus will initially be with the youth. The day of the week is still yet to be determined. That will be at the discretion of the leaders of this ministry. For additional information contact Missions at 432.683.0623.
Oil Field Man-Camp Ministry. As we obtain permission to establish Bible study in some of the local man-camps, we will need folks to help set-up cookouts, offer group studies, provide support to Christians living in the camps to take on the leadership role and responsibility for continuation of organized, scheduled gatherings.
Retirement Center Services. There are currently two retirement centers locally asking us to provide Bible study/church service for the residents. Day and time would be worked out by our volunteers and the retirement center management. For additional information contact Missions at 432.683.0623
Baptist Crisis Center. Volunteers needed to help with food and clothing distribution. Also counselors for utility assistance. The center is open Monday-Friday 9:00-11:30 am.
If you have had experience and a passion to be involved in any of these areas and feel lead by the Lord to be part of any of these ministries, please contact the mission’s office at 432.683.0623. A follow-up meeting for each of these ministries will be scheduled when we determine how much interest is expressed.
