For many years First Baptist Church of Overland Park has ministered to and with the community at Bethel Neighborhood Center. Members of FBC have served in Bethel’s former Thrift Shop, as volunteers in the summer and after-school programs, and donated items for the food pantry. Currently our Pastor and Associate Pastor serve on the Board of Trustees for Bethel Neighborhood Center and one of our members is on staff at Bethel. We feel strongly that the community at Bethel, in all of its diversity, is a glimpse of the kingdom of God – and we want to be part of it!
Check out these ways that First Baptist of Overland Park is involved in the ministries at Bethel and sign up to serve as well!
Friday Night Dinner & Worship
On the third Friday of each month at 5:30pm, we supply and serve a meal to Bethel’s church community. Then we have the opportunity to lead that community in worship. Won’t you join us!
100th Anniversary Mission Project
In honor of our 100th Anniversary, we want to honor our long-term commitment to Bethel and its ministries, so we have chosen Bethel Neighborhood Center as our mission project for this year. Throughout the year there will be opportunities to learn about, volunteer in, and support the ministries of Bethel Neighborhood Center.
