First Baptist Church has made a commitment to be an active and mission-minded community in the heart of downtown Chattanooga. We host a brunch each year in December for hundreds within our community would welcome a hot meal and smiling faces. Many of the people who attended are without homes and are cold during the winter season. This past year, each person who attended the brunch was not only given a warm meal, but received a few Christmas gifts. Coats were handed out, heavy socks were distributed, and everyone got a pair of thermal underwear.
Our ministry to and with the homeless is more than one event. We are proud to partner with Rev. Barry Kidwell of the Mustard Ministries. Each Thursday night, the fellowship hall is open for a meal and time of worship with Barry. To know more about Barry and his ministry, see the link provided below:
