Be the church

Be the Church

Sunday April 15 was an incredible day in the life of Stuttgart First Baptist
Church! We gathered at 9:00am as we do each Sunday, but from that
time forward the day was unlike anything any of us have ever experienced.
Following a time of prayer, more than
green t-shirts, gathered our supplies and took to the streets and
neighborhoods of our city to “be the church” instead of just “go to church.”
Twenty-two teams spread out across Stuttgart to show the
love of Christ to our neighbors through various ministries. Cookouts were
held at Bryant Park & Hickory Square Apartments; the entrance to the SHS
student parking was landscaped; planters were built, painted and potted
for the entrance of SJHS along with trashcan bins being painted; food
drives were held for the ICCM Food Bank at Mayflower, Wal-Mart & door-
to-door in several neighborhoods; a neighbor’s roof damaged during the
2008 tornado was repaired; 7.2 miles of Stuttgart streets were cleaned of
litter; breakfast was provided for the men and women of the SPD & SFD;
over 500 cookies were baked, decorated and delivered to food service
providers at local restaurants; doughnuts were purchased for customers at
a local doughnut shop; cages were cleaned and animals walked and cared
for at the Animal Shelter; two homes received exterior renovations; weeds
were whacked all over the community; gutters were cleaned & leaves
raked for several homeowners; residents & staff at Crestpark enjoyed
worship and a party, including gifts for everyone; breakfast was bought for
several people at the McDonald’s drive-thru; the kindergarten playground
at PAE was renovated, painted and cleaned; free laundry was provided
at a local laundromat; cars were washed for free at a local car wash; and
windows were washed for Stuttgart businesses! Over
ministry resulted in more than
and at least
250 of us donned our safety
2,100 contacts for First Baptist Church
700 Gospel touches!
Every expense for
Investing in the Kingdom fund made possible by the
our
generous giving of our faith family!
