Missions & Outreaches of the First Baptist Church of Fitchburg:
Our congregation has been deeply rooted in being involved with and supporting missions near and afar. We strive to have our totaled financial pledges towards missions and outreach amount to ten percent or greater of our totaled financial pledges towards the church operations. As a church within the denomination of American Baptist Churches - USA, we take part in five special national/international mission offerings throughout each year. These offerings are the America For Christ Offering, One Great Hour Of Sharing, World Mission Offering, Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering, and the Love Gift Box.
In the past year our congregation has been involved with and has provided financial support to several local and global non-profit organizations that provide life-changing services to people in various needs. The following list are these special organizations: the Battered Women's Shelter, Grotonwood Camp & Conference Center, Oceanwood Camp & Conference Center, Montachusett Interfaith Hospitality Network (MIHN), New Creation Ministry, Heifer International, the White Cross, and the Salvation Army.
In 2017 our congregation gave more than ten percent towards the church's missions and outreach and this does not include the financial gifts towards the five special offerings!
