We believe that our first call as missionaries is to our city. We have many different opportunities for you to serve in local mission. Here are some of the ministries and opportunities that you and your family can find a place to serve.
Women on Mission
Mission Minders meet the second Tuesday of each month at 11:30 a.m. in Room 151.
FBC maintains an emergency food pantry for those who come to the office for assistance or for needy families in our membership. Each Sunday Bible study room has a pantry to help make contributing easier for all our members. All food items are accepted any time for the Food Pantry.
The FBC sewing ministry started as a mission endeavor to teach women to sew, but it has evolved into a project-based ministry of sewing to meet the needs of various ministries in our area. The leadership is shared by Joanne Massengill and Sarah Pitzer. If you are not confident about your sewing skills, help abounds! Donations of sewing machines, notions, and fabric are accepted. The sewing ministry is open to all church members, and all supplies are provided for the sewing projects. The group meets on the second Saturday of the month at 9 a.m. at the Rec Center most months, and the fellowship is delightful!
Every Thursday the street ministry prepares food and delivers it to the homeless in locations around the city.
From time to time, hot meals are provided for students on both Del Mar and A&M campuses at their weekly Baptist Student Ministry meetings. Often, Baptist students use this opportunity to invite un-churched friends to hear the Word.

Every Monday at 6:00 pm in the Rec Center.
Christian Care Center
Located on the property of Parkdale Baptist church, the Christian Care Center distributes food, clothing, and household items to needy families.
Through our missions budget, FBC assists with this ministry as well as the Christian Family Center, Zephyr Baptist Encampment, South Texas Children's Home, South Texas School of Christian Studies, and the Baptist Student Ministry.
First Baptist Church also helps support the Cowboy Church in Sinton, Texas.
