Missions and Evangelism Programs

We conduct mission activities and evangelism through the Church staff, members, facilities, funds, time, and through cooperative efforts with the broader community and other faith partners.

We engage with a number of community and denominational partners in responding to special needs and providing services to our community.  We support various community based organizations that provide food, shelter and clothing throughout our community. We also support mission and relief agencies that are responding to human needs globally.  Additionally, we host various community support groups that meet weekly in our building.

Please register at www.aidswalkwashington.org. Find our group by typing in First Baptist Church of Washington, D.C. Registration fees are $25.00 for a general walker and $15.00 for a student/senior walker. Donations may be made without doing the walk and any amount helps.

Love Offering

Throughout his ministry, Christ commanded us to love one another. While First Baptist strives to follow this command in many ways, one particular way is through a love offering that is collected on the first Sunday of every month. The special offering, collected at the end of the service, goes to a fund administered by the life deacons, to provide temporary assistance to individuals in need of food, clothing, or other essential items.
