Projects throughout the year
Pure Water, Pure Love
An ongoing water filter project in which we raise money to buy water filters for missionaries serving in third world countries. Each filter costs $250.00. Since beginning this ministry, we have raised money for 12 filters (August 2018) and are raising money for the 13th.
baby bottle fund raiser
This benefits the Pregnancy Resource Center here in Douglasville. The money raised is used to provide sonograms for mothers who are considering abortions. Originally a ministry idea of Focus on the Family, many lives have been saved through the PRC efforts!
annie armstrong easter offering
An annual event sponsored by the Southern Baptist Convention’s Cooperative Program. All of the money raised goes directly to missionaries serving in North America. No administrative expenses are subtracted from this offering; 100% goes to those on the field of missions.
LOTTIE MOON CHRISTMAS OFFERING
An annual event sponsored by the Southern Baptist Convention’s Cooperative Program. All of the money raised goes directly to missionaries serving overseas in foreign countries, many of which are antagonistic of Christianity and persecute the Christian faith. No administrative expenses are subtracted from this offering; 100% goes to those on the field of missions.
This is another ministry program sponsored through the efforts of the Southern Baptist Convention. Young people apply, raise their own support and then travel to various metropolitan areas to provide labor to repair homes of people who often do not qualify for local, state or federal assistance. Our church has in the past taken responsibility to feed lunch for two teams during the five days they work on various homes in the Douglasville area.
backyard kids’ club
Our church has chosen to use this “VBS-to-go” format where we take our summer Vacation Bible School ministry into a particular neighborhood in order to have a more direct contact with families and children. Summer 2018 we were in the Golden Estates Community and our desire is to continue there because the needs and the possibilities are so great.
children’s home truck-loading
We collect items which are gathered by the churches in our local association and then they are taken to the children’s home located in Palmetto, Georgia.
First Responder Goodie Trays
Every year in early December we assemble trays of home cooked goodies which we then distribute to our first responders: police, sheriff, fire, 911 Center, etc. We also put together special trays for the teachers and staff at Mt. Carmel Elementary School.
Mt. Carmel Elementary School
Throughout the year we do everything we can (and as the Lord blesses) to help supply copy paper, office supplies and any other school supplies that the teachers often buy out of their own resources. We also attempt to meet the requests of individual teachers and provide personalized gifts for the teachers throughout the year.
