White Christmas Recap
First Baptist Church of Asheville collected more than 3,000 pounds of food. Most of that was distributed to about 65 families we knew to be in need in our community. We also had a considerable surplus that went to other neighbors in need of a meal. We were over our goal of 80 families by the time we are finished.
FirstShine is a traditional fun filled summer camp for children with special needs who can attend the camp for FREE! Held on the beautiful campus at Warren Wilson College, FirstShine is run and staffed by First Baptist Church of Asheville youth, college, and adult volunteer counselors who work one-on-one with individual children. Counselors help to care for the children and engage them in fun camp activities like swimming, horseback riding, Party & Dress Up Nights, campfire songs, and more! Save the date! Plan now to help volunteer next summer! To learn more please call the missions department at 252-4781.
Needed: High school juniors and seniors, and college students as one-on-one counselors.
