Each November,  First Baptist supports congregational  families in need through our Thanksgiving Basket ministry.  To request a basket, please speak with a Church Life Board member. Requests will be kept confidential.  Please advise of dietary needs or allergies when making a request.  The Church Life Board invites members to donate canned goods and other nonperishable items (food, toiletries, basic household supplies). Cash donations to help with perishable items for the baskets are gratefully appreciated.  For more information contact Lisa Flynn.

 Goods and cash donations are requested to be given to First Baptist by November 17, 2013.   Thank you for your support of our church family!
