Community Ministry

WELCOME TO FBC COMMUNITY MINISTRY

The First Baptist Church Community Ministry is care for the world outside the walls of the local congregation.

FIRST SUNDAYS AT FIRST BAPTIST

The first Sunday of the month, First Baptist Church hosts a free hot dinner from 4:00-5:00 p.m. in Hallock Hall. A rotation of six to eight volunteers from our LifeGroups serve this meal and others are always welcome to serve and pray with our guests. Contact the Minister of Community Ministries if you would like to be a part of this ministry. Also on the first Sunday of the month, from 4:30-5:30 p.m., the clothes closet and food pantry will be open. Guests must bring a valid I.D. to participate. Emergency assistance is available by appointment.

WEEKDAY FOOD PANTRY AND CLOTHES CLOSET

Weekdays in the church office from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Bring a photo I.D.

SUNDAY LUNCH AT FOOD AND SHELTER

Volunteers from FBC Norman and other local churches serve lunch each Sunday at Food and Shelter from Noon - 1:00 p.m. Groups of 3-4 people can contact the Minister of Community Ministries to sign up to serve.

BIKES AND BIBLE MINISTRY

This ministry has given out more than 1,000 bikes to people without transportation since it began. Volunteers work throughout the week to revive bikes so that those in need can receive one. If you are in need of a bike, call 321-1753 to put your name on the waiting list.

KID'S HOPE USA

Our church partners with Lincoln Elementary by providing mentors for at-risk students. Volunteers work one-on-one with a student, meeting once a week for an hour. The mentors help the students academically, but also provide a caring relationship to help them socially and emotionally.

If you are interested in becoming a mentor review the Volunteer Information Packet. Once you have decided to become a mentor, return the completed application to the church office. Contact with questions

Other ministries at Lincoln Elementary include our annual Giving Tree, teacher appreciation meals, school supply assistance, and food donations for Hot Dog Howdy. Contact our Minister of Community Ministries if you would like to get involved with our ministries to the students, families, and teachers, or if you have ideas of other ways we can be of help.
