regional missions

Serving around the united states

First Baptist has had the privilege of serving the Lord alongside some wonderful mission organizations all across the United States.  As you continue to scroll down this page, you'll find links to various mission organizations with whom we've served.  You'll also see a few examples from a few of our more recent trips.  As new opportunities for regional missions become available, they will be posted on this page.

Previous REGIONAL mission trips

Harrisburg, Pennsylvania

Our team put down new flooring, painted, installed new doors, pressure washed, and did some substantial outside work on the grounds of the mission house.

St. Louis, Missouri
July 10-17, 2021
Our high school mission team served through Servant Life with Street Reach Ministries in urban St. Louis.  We had the privilege of leading Vacation Bible School-style ministry at local parks with children ages 3-11.  One child said, "Bible Club is the highlight of my life!"  While it was so nice to hear those words, it also showed us that genuine love and God's Word can be a blessing to those even in the deepest of poverty.  God blessed us as we played, sang, danced, and taught the children about Him.  We also did other various tasks around the city of St. Louis.  Thanks to all who prayed for us and supported our trip!

Our mission team partnered with the Boyd Avenue Baptist Church in Casper, Wyoming to put up interior studs, baffling, and drywall in their new ministry building.  Eleven volunteers worked for five days to help this church develop a facility to reach people for faith in Christ and to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of the community. We also helped to unload and position construction supplies that will be used by future teams and volunteers who come to complete the work.
