The Mission Council met on Monday, April 22 to discuss the great work being done across our ministries at FBC. We hope you will be as excited as we are about the ways they are impacting our community! Thank you for your incredible generosity and for the love you are showing to the people of Griffin. Here’s a quick summary of how your contributions to missions impact our neighbors:

  • Abundant Life Soup Kitchen continues to serve many individuals with a hot meal throughout the week.
  • Benevolence has served 100 households representing 249 individuals this quarter. They have provided help with food, clothes, gasoline, and medication. They have also supported Spalding Samaritans and Rushton’s Hope. 
  • The Clothes Closet has served 172 individuals this quarter.
  • Community Engagement (led by Seth Brown) reports that Quimby Melton, Steve Brown, Randy Shaw, Nic Bland, and Seth Brown recently participated in Real Men Read at Futral Road Elementary. Additionally, Seth has been been able to speak at some of the meetings of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Griffin High. FBC is supplying 5 students with new bibles at that meeting.
  • The Community Garden is in high gear and has planted for the spring. They are grateful to Coleman Tatum, who donated two dump trick loads of wood chips and to Adam Davis, who donated two pallets of garden soil to our garden. They are looking for volunteers to tend the tomatoes, peppers, squash, zucchini, okra, egg plant, green beans, crowder peas, beets, and cantaloupe they have planted.
  • Five Loaves and Two Fish Food Pantry has been very busy. They also recognized 75 of their volunteers at a banquet recently.

  • The Levite Ministry clocked 53 work hours this quarter.
  • The LifeSong Ministry graduated another class of women on April 18th. They will begin a fall session on September 16. 
  • Spalding Samaritans has assisted 104 clients with a total of $13,290.75 in utility assistance. They see new clients at each meeting.
  • The Toy Shop Ministry is hard at work planning for December and will introduce a Christmas in July toy drive this year.
