Sunday worship is back in session.
Worship will still be provided online through our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/First-Baptist-Church-236755539718322/), especially for persons who should stay home: people over 65, those in poor health, people not feeling well, and young children (who are also susceptible to the virus). If you fall into one of these categories, please stay home and worship online.
Youth Collection for "Operation: Christmas Child"
All year long our Youth are collecting items for "Operation: Christmas Child" to fill shoeboxes for children around the world who might not otherwise receive a Christmas gift. You may want to continue to buy those items as you shop (do not make a special trip for this), store them, and then bring them to the church when we can be together again. For the month of April, it is suggested that we gather crafts for children ages 2-14, items such as play dough, water colors, stickers, chalk, and puzzles.
Clay Youth Food Program
This outreach is supported by the generosity of multiple individuals, community organizations, local businesses, and area churches. We are funded through donations made to the Clay County YMCA.
During the school year, food is packed and sent home with children for weekends and school breaks. Throughout the summer, the volunteers involved in this program prepare and deliver lunches every weekday during the month of June to children in Clay County. In July, they make two deliveries of two weeks worth of shelf-stable food and water to the families. Monetary donations can be sent to:

Union Hospital E-cards
Union Hospital now has online cards which may be sent to patients. If you know someone in the hospital, fill out the form and a volunteer will deliver the card.
This is a nice way to let someone know you are thinking of them if you are unable to visit. The link is available here:
