Missions at FBC

We believe that the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18–20) is not the “Great Option,” but a command to all of his people to be engaged in the beautiful mission of our Lord Jesus: to make disciples of all nations.  Don't you want to join us?  Below you can find information about upcoming trips and ways you can help.

Operation Christmas Child 

Operation Christmas Child is a project of the international relief organization, Samaritan’s Purse. Their mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. They ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease, and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.

In 2018, FBC packed over 800 shoeboxes! To learn more about packing a shoebox and shoebox gift ideas, please visit our OCC page. 

In addition to packing shoeboxes, we also send a team to each year to the OCC Atlanta Distribution Center to help inspect shoeboxes and ready for shipment.  This year the trip will be Friday, December 6 - Saturday, December 7th.  The deadline to signup is Sunday, November 10th.  For more information or to signup, please click here
