“Souper” Bowl Sunday 2014 Visual Recap

While the Super Bowl game was anticlimactic, the FBC version, Souper Bowl 2014, was a hit.  The stars of the event were the FBC congregation and guests along with Mrs. Joyce’s homemade vegetable soup, Conrad & Hinkle pimento cheese, Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches and Brownies.

To top it all off, FBC’s youth did it again…..another successful fundraiser for the pursuit of mission and service to our local and international community.

Great job FBC Youth!

Food Boxes

It is time once again for our Sunday School mission project – food boxes for needy families in our community. Last year we prepared 60 boxes at a cost of $75.00 – $80.00 each. Please give as you are able.

All checks should be made out to First Baptist Church. Sunday, December 15 is the deadline for all contributions. The Boxes will be delivered on Wednesday, December 18.

Contact Peggy Barnhardt or the church office if you wish to help box items or deliver boxes.

Habitat for Humanity House 2013

Once again First Baptist Church is going to be involved in a mission project in the community as we work alongside Habitat for Humanity of Lexington. (Or Habitat for Humanity of Lexington Facebook page)  We will be asking for volunteers and contributions. This year’s Alternative Gift Fair will feature Habitat and this house.
