Community Outreach

Join us as we share the Word of Life

Community Outreach

At First Baptist, we try our best to help when we hear of a need. Our Truth In Action volunteers build handicap accessible ramps and do other repairs as they can for the Abbeville community, and a bi-annual Day of Caring is held where the deacons and others assist in yard clean-up, spring cleaning, and more for our members and others in the community. 

 During the summer we put on a Vacation Bible school in the evenings, open to the community, where we offer food, music, recreation, worship, Bible study, and missionary stories. During the school year, we partner with South Side Baptist to offer a Good News Club after school hours at Westwood Elementary.

Occasionally we host community block parties—either in our parking lot or at the Livery Stable on the Square—with food and bounce houses to have some fun fellowship and have another opportunity to meet our community kids and invite them to church or special events.

We also support several outside ministries and churches, such as UCMAC, Abbeville Youth Center, sister churches in Columbia, SC, and Utah, Connie Maxwell Children’s Home, an orphanage in Rwanda, and more.

We want to reach our community and our world for Christ.

Prison Ministry Leader

The Prison Ministry is a combined effort by local churches to bring the Gospel to those incarcerated at the county Detention Center in Abbeville. The program consists of two Bible studies, Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 PM and a church service on Sundays at 8:30 AM. Services are rotated between the participating churches, but First Baptist participates every Thursday and at least one Sunday a month or more. We provide Bibles, religious reading materials, assistance when needed, and an annual Christmas get together with a meal, gift, and message.

 Rescued and Restored

 

We will be hosting the Rescued and Restored Services on the following dates:

April 21 – 3:00-5:30 – This was an amazing event. There was over 200 people in attendance. The music was great, the message was on time, and the skit was very touching and helpful for all to see the difference in serving Jesus, the devil, and straddling the fence of trying to serve both. There’s only ONE true choice in this life when making the choice for an eternity in Heaven and His name is Jesus!!! There were so many Recovery Bibles given out during the door prize drawings and also baskets of personal goodies. At the end of the service, several people gave their testimonies, 2 people surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ and 18 people signed up to be baptized on May 5th, 2024, which means taking the next step of faith with an outward commitment to serve the Lord. You are encouraged to come and attend the next event. You will be blessed!!! Come expecting God to move in your heart and in the hearts of others.

July 21 – 3:00-5:30

October 13 – 3:00- 5:30

During this service, you will be lead in Praise and Worship, have an intercession for Food and Fellowship, and most important –  The Word!! You will have the opportunity to hear different people Testify about where God has brought them from and what he is doing in their lives today.

During these services, so many people have given their lives to Jesus Christ! This is not only for those who have been addicted to drugs and alcohol. This is for everyone to come and be a shoulder to the community we live and and allow God to use you to help others turn from the addictions of life.

Come and be a part of these awesome services!!!
