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!

Our Mission Trip to Macedonia: We are so grateful and thankful for your generosity in getting our mission team to Macedonia. Pray for their safety and that the people in Macedonia would be encouraged and strengthened in their ministries due to our team’s visit.
