Local Mission Focus

In an effort to make an impact on our community,  First Baptist Clemson will focus quarterly on a local organization and mission need through education, service opportunities, and donations.  We hope you can be a part of these mission endeavors as we work together to 'love God and love our neighbor' (Luke 10:27). 

Family Promise/Homelessness

During the months of April- June we focus our local mission efforts on Family Promise.  The Director, Joann Brink, spoke to the congregation on April 26 and shared their story, ministry, and vision for the future.  The church also had a 'Home Improvement  Work Day' at the Center on May 7.  

Our support of this ministry last throughout the year. One week each quarter, First Baptist Clemson host families who are working toward independence with Family Promise.  Volunteers from FBC and St. Andrews Catholic Church coordinate together to provide food, lodging, and activities during the week.

Throughout the year our Children First program focuses on creating a core group of volunteers within our church family to serve as resources for children in our community.  This program serves as a focal point of many coordinating programs,   This year FBC has collected items such as lunchboxes, school supplies, and Christmas presents. We also have an adopt a grandparent ministry with the children at Helping Hands.
