Christian Outreach Center
The Christian Outreach Center in Boone is at First Baptist Church, and is sponsored and staffed by volunteers from the Three Forks Baptist Association and members of area churches in the community. The food bank is directed to individuals and families who need extra help with grocery items. The center is open every Monday from 2:00 pm until 6:00 pm, regardless of weather or weekday holidays. The center will always be open for food pick-up on Mondays. Christian counselors are on hand to listen, encourage, and pray with those who come for help. Assistance offered is in no way dependent upon a client’s faith, adherence to any religion, or church attendance.
First Baptist Church works with and sponsors many local, state, and international mission trips for all ages. These have included the local “Operation- In–As – Much”, and several international mission trips.
Financial missions support is a major part of our budget. We work through the Three Forks Baptist Association, the North Carolina Baptist State Convention, the Southern Baptist Convention and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. We regularly support in prayer and financially those who have been sent from our congregation to serve in international missions work.
NC Baptist Men’s Disaster Relief Ministry
This ministry is fully by gifts to the State Missions Offering and special gifts designated for disaster relief. It is fully staffed by both male and female volunteers trained in many areas of this ministry. These volunteers are called out with minimal notice and work long hours to serve the physical needs of those in a disaster situation.
First Baptist Church has a rich heritage of ministering to the needs within our fellowship and our community. We have led in development of the student ministry on ASU campus and in development of local ministries to the homeless. We help with funding and financial support of many local agencies that minister to the needs of special groups within our community.
