Churchwide Opportunities:

Loving Jasper During the Holidays

In November and December 2019 Jasper’s First Baptist Church collected items to give to the Walker County Coalition for the Homeless.  We requested new blankets, hand warmers, protein bars, shave cream, small packs of Kleenex, new socks, men’s deodorant, and new black backpacks.  Thank you so much for your generosity!
JFBC participated in Operation Thanksgiving at the Jasper Civic Center.  This ministry involves several sister churches coming together to feed our community on Thanksgiving Day. This includes preparation, meal delivery and serving meals at the Civic Center.
On December 6, JFBC hosted a Kids Night Out to help 9 local Foster Families.  JFBC Adult and Youth leaders volunteered to give 40 children an evening of fun and fellowship in our Family Life Center.

GriefShare: Surviving the Holidays

JFBC has been involved in the GriefShare ministry for many years now and we were honored to host a one night Surviving the Holidays meeting on November 18 in the Family Life Center Fireside Room.
This meeting was facilitated by Ann Cook.

Christmas Backpacks

Alabama Baptists are challenged to provide at least 9,500 backpacks, bringing the Gospel to many who have never heard. JFBC was able to donate 102 backpacks to this ministry, sponsored by the Alabama Baptist Convention State Board of Missions and WMU Alabama.
Thank you to all who gave towards this ministry!
