2017: Republic of Georgia (June 23 - July 1, 2017) We joined 30 of our brothers and sisters in Christ as they came across the border from the country of Azerbaijan to meet us in Georgia for a Christian conference. Azerbaijan is a "closed" country and Christians are often persecuted for their faith. We learned what life as a Christian in a closed country is like, helped to facilitate discussion groups, taught a an Old Testament survey and lead a Vacation Bible School for children.

Tabitha Ministries Tabitha Ministries is First Baptist's ladies sewing ministry. Tabitha was a seamstress who spent her time doing good and Paul referred to her as a disciple (Acts 9:30-39). Sewing ministry volunteers use their talents as gifts to missionaries who faithfully serve around the world. They recently provided 50 children's dresses to missionaries who will distribute them to young girls in the Congo. Locally, Tabitha Ministries also makes lap quilts for shut-ins as a reminder that they are loved and prayed for.
