Missions Committee Summary & Notes -- Nov 2017

Missions Committee met in Aug, Sep and Oct to discuss ongoing budget issues and priorities for the 2018 Missions Activities. The approved 2018 budget will use Designated Missions funds to support renewed local Missions activities (e.g. Ft Walton First) and continues our ongoing missionary contributions. Primary church Mission activities remain Farm Day and the Live Nativity with some challenging reductions to Cooperative Mission and Emerald Coast Fellowship of Baptist Churches support. New areas for proposed emphasis include increased Prison Ministry Bible Study support and new support to church-associated missionaries.  

Current Mission Opportunities

Disaster Relief Training 


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. Training is complete for this year but please contact Missions Committee (through the church) for general info/admin as 2018 begins.


Backpack Meal program

We continue to partner with Food For Thought into the 2017-2018 school year program! Meals are pre-packed and delivered to Bruner Middle School as part of our sponsorship, and we have successfully increased the number of meals provided as part of our Food For Thought partnership and thanks to our wonderful team of volunteers! If you are interested in helping, please contact the church (243-3163).


Crop Drop 2017: This annual event distributes last-from-the-field produce from all over the SE region to those who are in need locally. Thanks to the local organizers and for our volunteers who picked up and delivered over 200 bags of sweet potatoes to Opportunity Place. Click HERE for some photos and join us next year for an even bigger event (one of the produce trucks broke down and couldn't deliver this year).
