Missions Committee Summary & Notes -- July 31st, 2018

Meeting opened with prayer at approximately 5:30pm. Primary reasons for this meeting were to discuss final planning for the Aug 11th “Ft Walton First” event, prepare for August Missions speaker dates, and address several general budget details/focus areas. Adam Babcock chaired the meeting and the following members were present: Bruce Garner, Kelly Stanford. Tentative plans set for Brett & Lyuba West to speak on Wed 8 Aug, and Dean A on 22 Aug. Ft Walton First is on schedule to provide yard work and light household tasks for church and community members. Missions committee will provide T-shirts and lunch, with over 80 volunteers signed up. We will continue working to determine our appropriate roles and support in the new Emerald Coast Church Network, recommend budget changes IAW reduced Network needs, and inform the church regarding changes. The next planned Missions Committee meeting is anticipated for late Sept.  Meeting closed with prayer at approximately 6:35pm.  

Current Mission Opportunities

Woman's Missionary Union (WMU) is a missions organization that has educated and involved generations upon generations in Christian missions. Their purpose—to challenge Christian believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God—is accomplished through  age-level missions organizations, hands-on missions opportunities, and additional resources produced by WMU. They believe missions is a lifestyle and provide missions education resources for all age-levels. See more info at the following

Disaster Relief Training

Pray we don't need it, but prepare to help others!


If you are interested in joining our Disaster Relief Team there are many different ways to help. Contact the Missions Committee, get scheduled for training, and read lots of great information at www.flbaptistdisaster.org or on the Facebook page for Florida Baptist Disaster Relief. Our training at Hillcrest Baptist Church in Pensacola was a huge success. Please see the front page info, the Facebook page linked above, or contact the Missions Committee (through the church) for general info/admin.
