Missions at First Baptist Church of Memphis
First Annual Day of Service Recap
One of the things I
love about First Baptist is our heart for missions. Our missions emphasis
is on our community and recently we had a service day in our Binghampton
neighborhood. This day consisted of minor home repairs, gardening, clean
up and house painting but these things were not the primary goal.
day was about building a better community by working together with neighbors to
be better neighbors. We partnered with First International Baptist Church and
Greater Louis Street Missionary Baptist Church to show Binghampton that we are
invested in the well being of the neighborhood. We acted as Jesus calls
us to act - breaking down ethnic and socio-economic barriers to be the body of
Christ. It's a good day when someone gets their house painted for free.
It's a great day when this is done in a spirit of community for a neighbor by a
