Opportunities for involvement in ministries beyond First Baptist Church are supported by First Baptist Church and many members participate in these ministries on a regular basis.
"And you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth" Acts 1:8b
The Red Door Kitchen (RDK) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to enhancing the lives of those in need by providing nutritious meals and related services.
Our Mission: To enhance the quality of life of persons who are homebound by providing nutritious meals and related services.
The Red Door Kitchen provides nutritious meals to and touches the lives of more than 100 people each weekday. Some of these people come to our facility, but most have a meal delivered to them. We provide more than 36,000 meals each year and those meals are served and delivered by unpaid volunteers from area churches and the local community who donate their time, vehicles and expenses. For many of our patrons who are homebound, our delivery driver might be the only person they interact with all day and just that human contact is as critical as a meal.Our mission: To enhance the quality of life of persons who are homebound by providing nutritious meals and related services
