IN OUR COMMUNITY

The Church is called to minister to the needs of the community. In light of this, we strive to support several local programs that share the love and support of Christ with those in need. Not all of these events are FBC-run, but they are all FBC-supported, whether this is financial or volunteer support.

LOCAL JAIL MINISTRIES

First Baptist Church supports a local missionary that works with prisoners throughout several states in the upper Midwest. 

 

In addition, one of our church members volunteers regularly to travel to various prisons in northern Illinois. They distribute books and magazines to the inmates. Although there is no one-on-one time involved with any of the inmates, there are opportunities for short conversations of encouragement. These encounters communicate to the prisoners that someone cares about them and there is a reason to hope.
