Outreach

Step Up and Step Out

The Outreach Ministry Team (OMT) seeks to find ways to serve people in our community, Walker County and in the world. 

Through our Parent’s Day Out program, we are able to provide a safe learning environment for babies through 4 years of age.  Children are encouraged to learn through faith-based curriculum that includes storytelling, music, sensory activities, movement and games, service opportunities, outdoor play, Chapel time and much more.

OMT is committed to working with Gibbs Pre-K school providing clothing, toiletries, food, etc. for children who are in need and also providing support and appreciation for teachers and staff.

We work closely with Huntsville Independent School Social Services Department helping families with food (from our food pantry), clothing and hygiene needs and sometimes household items and furniture.  Our Thanksgiving baskets are shared with families who are recommended by the department.

Christmas is a special time for collecting gifts for senior adults.  Everything from baked goods to warm blankets, house shoes, and sweaters are collected and gifted to special seniors in our community.

We are especially excited about serving those in need and/or walk-bys needing a snack through our Blessing Box situated on the front lawn of the church.  Our Food Pantry and Blessing Box are supplied with the help of St. Stephen Episcopal Church and members of our church.

We support and have several church members who volunteer their time with The Gathering Place – a ministry designed to care for families affected by dementia and Parkinson’s diseases.  This, too, is an ecumenical effort from First Baptist, First Methodist, First Christian, Faith Lutheran, and First Presbyterian churches.

High Noon Music is an event that we implemented for every 2nd Tuesday at Noon to promote area musicians and Sam Houston State University music majors.  Not only does this event reach the community for a lunch and concert it also provides a “love offering” for the performer.

Mission Day Camp is held in the summer for 1st – 8th graders.  The days are filled with outreach activities, worship, group building games, and alternative learning centers.  Children will have the opportunity to learn how to be more inclusive and compassionate towards others.

We are a Four for Four church – meaning that we promote and take an offering for the four denominational offerings.  These offerings provide disaster relief, peacemaking efforts and education, self-sustainable education, help for those suffering from war, injustices, hunger and homelessness, higher education, and support for families who have lived their lives supporting the church through various types of ministries. 

We provide support for global outreach opportunities when they arise such as blankets and clean up buckets for flood areas, border ministry, Mercy Ships, medical supplies and medicine bottles to Third World countries, Heifer Project International, etc.

Always remembering that TOGETHER – WE CAN DO A LOT!
