“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  Acts 1:8

The FBCT Missions Ministry exists to be His witnesses in our Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth!  With multiple opportunities offered throughout the year for you to become involved in missions at the local, national and international levels, it’s our purpose to help the people of God “Do His Work,” together.

Current Missions Opportunities:

Helping Survivors of Hurricanes Harvey & Irma

Many are looking for ways to assist hurricane survivors in the aftermath of recent storms. Consider some time proven tips.

  • Please do not collect supplies to send unless a specific organization has requested them and has agreed to receive them.
  • Please do not send used clothes, shoes or jackets.
  • Many excellent organizations will be assisting through established operations.
  • If you would like to donate money, you may donate at SBDR.org/Texas. 100% of the funds will go to Southern Baptist response organizations in Texas. There are NO administrative fees.
  • Pray for survivors, utility workers, and disaster response organizations who serve those in need.

Alabama Baptist Disaster Relief volunteers are ready to assist when requested. Self-deployment is discouraged since every part of the infrastructure is overloaded. A disaster this large will require time and a lot of resources. Pray for responses to proceed smoothly.

TEAM Needs
Sunday, September 24  •  3:30pm

TEAM needs some help breaking down clothing racks after our Dollar Dash.  This will be next door at the Trussville First United Methodist Church.  Dollar Dash is a TEAM event that follows the Trussville First United Methodist Church’s fall consignment sale.  With several men the whole process should take less than 2 hours.

Those interested can contact DonnaSGriffith@gmail.com, or leave a text message at 205-807-1746.   It will be very helpful to know who/how many people are willing to come help!
