COMMUNITY SERVICE

national-map-large

 
Ft. Mitchell Baptist Church is committed to meeting the needs of our community by providing opportunities for our members and friends to be of service to others. Regular activities will be planned to assist ongoing ministries in our community, so that we may share the love of Jesus. Everyone is invited and encouraged to participate.
 
Ministries we regularly support include Agape Grill, Isaiah House, Moore Activity Center, Jump for Joy Preschool, Ronald McDonald House, Welcome House of Covington, New Hope Center, Lifeline Ministries, Backpack Buddies, and Baptist Village. As opportunities to serve occur, notices are placed in the Sunday bulletin as well as the FMBC weekly reminders. Join us in sharing the love of Jesus!
 
If you wish to support these ministries or others in the local area, please contact June Madison at junemadison@yahoo.com.
 

BPBuddies Ends for Year

MAY 7 was our last collection for the 2017 School Year. Thanks for your support all year long. Be watching for our 1st collection this fall.

Backpack Buddies: Keeping Our School Kids Fed All Weekend

Through our Backpack Buddies collection of food items, FMBC has supported Goodridge Elementary students who enjoy two meals each school day but need food for the weekends. Each Friday of the school year, bags of nutritious food are discreetly placed into the backpacks of children in need. Gail Tanner collects our donations on a weekly basis and transports them to the school for distribution. To help replenish much-needed supplies at the beginning of the school year, we are asking for donations to restock the shelves.

The most needed items are:
Cans of fruit, vegetables, and soups
Cans of pasta products (Chef Boyardee, i.e.)  
Boxes of macaroni and cheese
Instant oatmeal
 
As you shop for your family, add a few items from the list above and help hungry students begin school each Monday morning well fed and ready to learn. After August’s special back-to-school collection, please continue to bring items to Gail on a weekly basis. (Gail is the smiling lady who greets you at the front door each and every Sunday morning!)

AGAPE GRILL/ISAIAH HOUSE

On the last Saturday of each month a team leaves from the Church Parking lot promptly at 7:45 a.m. to join with members of the Agape Grill & Isaiah House in Covington to distribute food to local families in need. Located in the parking lot at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Covington, the team helps distribute food, assist those in need of help, and provide other logistical support to the vital outreach to the inner city. Parking is limited, so it is imperative to ride together.

PRAYER PARTNERS:

Prayer is simply talking to God about the things that are important in life; praises, forgiveness, requests or thanks…; it doesn’t have to be mechanical, structured, complicated or perfect. Anyone can become a stronger person of prayer, you only need to be a Christian and you have a direct line to Him .He knows who needs him and He is always there to listen to our prayer. We just need to do it! Why? Because God’s hand moves when people pray together. Won’t you consider joining the Deacons Prayer Partners? As a prayer partner, some meet to pray about submitted prayer requests but others can participate from the privacy of your thoughts. The team will work to share requests and, as important, to share results.
