Volunteer

CROP Walk

Each year, the First Baptist Church participates in the Nashua Area CROP Walk to fight world hunger.  The 29th Annual Walk is on Sunday, October 27.

The CROP Walk is directed by Church World Services, and all people in the community are invited to participate by obtaining monetary pledges of support to fight hunger and by walking 6 miles through the streets of Nashua.

Twenty-five percent of the proceeds go to fighting local hunger by dividing the funds between Corpus Christi Food Pantry, Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, The Salvation Army, and the Saint John Neumann Food Pantry.

The balance of funds goes towards fighting hunger in the global community.

Food Pantry

Members of First Baptist bring gifts of food to the worship service on the first Sunday of each month.  All donations are given to Corpus Christi Food Pantry.

Greater Nashua Interfaith Hospitality Network

Through the Interfaith Hospitality Network and the Anne-Marie House in Hudson, NH, First Baptist Church helps to provide hospitality, food, shelter, and job training to those in need within the greater Nashua area.  We provide trained volunteers, prepare meals and support the organization financially.

Nashua Soup Kitchen

Through volunteer action from members of the church congregation at the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter, the church is actively involved with feeding the hungry of the greater Nashua area.

 

MISSIONS

May God’s glory fill the whole earth

— Psalm 72:19

First Baptist members seek to obey Christ’s final command to His followers, namely, to make disciples of all peoples everywhere. We have pledged to give 10% of our annual budget to the United Mission of American Baptist Churches, USA. We help to support financially and prayerfully approximately 150 American Baptist missionaries and mission partners in more than 70 countries around the world. Special offerings for ministries of evangelism, discipleship, Christ-like ministries of healing, and equipping of pastoral leadership increase our commitment to acting as Christ’s followers.

Matthew 25: 35-36

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was naked and you gave me clothes”

Each month on Communion Sunday we receive our Gifts of Food Offering. This food is taken to the Nashua Pastoral Care Center to be distributed to those in our community who are in need of nourishing food.

Twice yearly we receive our Gifts of Clothes Offering. Our donations are taken to the Upper Room Compassionate Ministries in Nashua.
