On April 25, we had a Missions Awareness Sunday in worship. The following video of Reggie McNeal sharing at an “Unleashed” Conference was shown in the worship service.
Afterwards, attendees were invited to a Missions Fair in our Fellowship Hall. At the fair, there were information booths and representatives from various local ministries, community services, and Farmville Baptist ministries to share with attendees on how they can get involved in ministry and service in our community. We served “fair food” like hot dogs, snacks, popcorn, cotton candy, etc.

On Sunday, February 14, our youth will participate in the Souper Bowl of Caring. It is an opportunity for our youth to help fight hunger and poverty in our community. At the end of the worship service, our youth will station themselves at the exits of the sanctuary holding pots to collect canned and boxed food for our church’s emergency food pantry, and money for FACES, our community food pantry.
Please plan to bring cans or monetary donations to support this effort!!

On the third Saturday of every month, a group from Farmville Baptist has been helping out at FACES (Farmville Area Community Emergency Services), our local food pantry, in packing bags of food for our neighbors. Last Saturday, we bagged over 800 bags of food. FACES is located at 416 N. South St. (the address sign on the picture is wrong!). We try to get to FACES by 7:30 am, and we’re usually finished by 10:30 a.m.
FACES appreciates ANYTHING you can give, but your monetary donations go farther than your food donations. If you give FACES a $10.00 donation, they can buy up to 67 pounds of food! For every 15¢ you donate, they can buy one pound of food from the Virginia Food Bank! All of the money you donate goes to purchasing food and making FACES run, as all workers are volunteers.
To donate, write a check payable to “FACES” to:
P.O. Box 644
Farmville, VA 23901

On June 14-18, we held our “Crocodile Dock” Vacation Bible School. Over fifty children attended and learned about how God is with us, how God is powerful, how God does what he says he’ll do, how God gives us life, and God cares for us. The refrain for the week was “Fear Not!” We also collected canned goods and $140.95 for FACES, our local food pantry.
Many thanks to Crystal Cupp and Sandy East for directing VBS this year. And once again, a word of appreciation also goes to all our adult and youth volunteers!
