Local Missions

 

The food pantry is open to anyone in need on Wednesdays from 11:00am - 2:00pm ONLY.

All available help is a result of donations by our congregation. Since we try to help as many of those as possible, we can only help once per household, during a six-month period. Items are limited. Please contact the church office if you or someone you know needs assistance in this area or if you would like to make a donation. You can bring in donated items anytime during regular church service times and place them in the donation box in the Fellowship Hall.

Fairfield Baptist Church partners with many other churches in our community to help with a Community Christmas Dinner led by the Centerville United Methodist Church. This dinner is free and available to anyone. No reservations need to be made. The dinner is on Christmas Day. The hours vary from year to year and will be announced on our calendar page as the time approaches. Volunteers are needed each year to prepare food and deliver it to the location of the dinner on Christmas morning, to help serve the food, to deliver the food to those in our community who are unable to leave their home, and to fellowship with those who come to the dinner. Please contact our church office to see how you can help with this mission.

Parents who are unable to provide Christmas gifts for their children may pick up an application for the Angel Tree Program at our church office, to be returned by the deadline. Angels are hung on the Angel Tree and "adopted" by our church members who shop for, wrap and return their gifts to the church.

We have several volunteers who help with this mission to take meals to those in our community who cannot get out of their house. Speak with Charles Gilmer for more information.
