Missions

The SFBC Missions Team is a group of people who come together with the common goal of sharing Jesus Christ with others and helping our community. We have traveled to New York City and Columbia, Tennessee. However, through these amazing experiences God opened our eyes to the many needs right here in our own community. Our 2008 and 2009 missions “trips” have been right here in Unicoi County.

In Unicoi County we did Back Yard Bible Clubs at Whispering Meadows, Erwin Housing Authority, and Four Seasons. The kids there had the opportunity to learn about the Ten Commandments, do crafts, music, and have snacks. Back Yard Bible Clubs continued once a week throughout the summer!

We will also did outreach, inreach, yard work, and small construction projects to help those in our community who are in need. 

In 2015 we went to Cincinnati, Ohio for a mission trip.  We were able to connect with many church plants through the SBC.

Unicoi County’s Summer Food Program

Each summer we team up with First Christian Church to sponsor the Summer Food Program.  We deliver food to the children who are food insecure every other week through the summer.

The Problem:
HUNGER:
Unicoi County has a large population of kids who live in hunger or fear of starvation.  1,600 students in our school system receieve free or reduced lunch and breakfast.  These free meals stop in the summer!

The Plan
GIVE:
$100 can feed a local child throughout the summer months.  100% of the money given goes to feeding these children.

The People
SERVE:
We need your help to make this happen!  We can minister to the physical needs of the children in our community, as well as the spiritual needs he or she may have.  Pray about how the Lord would have you serve.

Contact Kelly Pate or Pastor Zach if you are interested in giving to the program, can help pack the food, or can help deliver the food.  A sign up sheet for delivery people will be on the table in the vestibule.

Giving

Throughout the year our church gives to special offerings, including the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, The Mother's Day Offering for the Tennessee Baptist Children's Homes, THe Golden offering for Tennessee Missions, and The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.
