Reaching the Community

First Baptist School believes in sharing the Gospel through love and service. We are proud to develop students who are servants in the community. Here are a few of the ways our students get involved each year.

Samaritan's Purse

Each year, First Baptist School students donate hundreds of shoeboxes to Samaritan’s Purse, an organization that serves communities across the globe. These shoeboxes are filled with toys, clothing, hygiene products, and art supplies and then delivered to in-need communities around the world. The Gospel is shared with each distribution, and this service project enables our students to serve and show God's love throughout the world. 

Community Outreach

First Baptist School understands the importance of serving communities in our city. That’s why we fundraise and serve throughout the year: the sophomore service project has raised over $104,000 to date, our students volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House and Fisher House, and fundraise for organizations like the Boon Project, Water Missions International, Lowcountry Orphan Relief, and more.

The Christmas Store

The Christmas Store is a ministry of First Baptist Church. Our school students and families support the Christmas Store by donating new items or by volunteering their time. The Christmas Store reaches the downtown community by providing significantly discounted goods for purchase, and First Baptist Church and School has the opportunity to show our community the love of Christ.

School Partnership

High school students who choose to volunteer at Sanders Clyde Elementary School spend their time serving as reading buddies, hosting Field Day, serving snacks and handing out supplies at the Back to School Bash, collecting gifts and candy for holiday events, and serving at many other events throughout the year. Our students build relationships and encourage and mentor younger students, sharing the gifts God has given them.
