Missions News

The Clothes Closet: We are still accepting donations! We have partnered with other churches in a program called “Knit Together” for distribution of clothing we have collected or will collect in the future. “Knit Together” is a Clothing Shop where foster families and children in the CASA program can pick up needed items for free. It is located on 7th Street in Brownwood across from the Coggin Avenue Baptist Church.

The Medical Closet: Medical equipment for loan out will be stored in the former clothes closet space next to the Esther Class Room in the Youth Building. Donations of gently used medical equipment are always welcome!

The Missions and Outreach programs of FBC are directed toward fulfilling the Great Commission of Christ recorded in Matthew 28:19-20, by spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in our community and all the world. Through its Missions and Outreach programs FBC seeks to glorify God by ministering to needs locally and around the world and by nurturing the spiritual welfare of others.
