In obedience to Christ’s command to proclaim the Good News from the local community to the farthest points on the planet, First Baptist Church regularly engages in mission trips in partnership with people both near and far. In recent years, our youth group has traveled to Europe, singing and learning about the Protestant Reformation, to Houston, Texas, aiding in hurricane recovery, to Mississippi to encourage people living in rural poverty, and to Miami to provide a Bible camp for inner city children. We have sent adult mission teams to Belize almost yearly since 2005, except during the pandemic. The latest Belize Mission Trip occurred in February 2023, a construction team working at a Baptist Training Center and Santa Elena Baptist Primary School. Before the pandemic, a team served in Belize in February 2020, where our medical professionals provided free healthcare and medicines to over 500 people while our construction crew helped complete a second story addition at Santa Elena Baptist Primary School. The next Belize Mission Trip is planned for February 2024. Some of our other mission trips include a small team in 2006 to Dalbeattie, Scotland to help a local Baptist congregation begin a community prayer ministry. In May 2019, a team of college students and adults traveled to Kosice, Slovakia to minister among the Roma people in partnership with Cooperative Baptist Fellowship field personnel, Jon and Tanya Parks. Wherever the need may be, we invite you to serve with us and help bring to bear the love of Christ to all people!
God calls us to go and serve. How about you? Join FBC Marion on our next mission trip!
