Dress and Bless
The community ministry, Dress and Bless, provides new school uniforms for children in the immediate neighborhood of First Baptist Church. Wearing new school clothes on the first day of school can give these children a much-needed sense of excitement and self-confidence.
Each August, church members have the opportunity to purchase uniforms for a specific child. They are also asked to commit to pray for that child by name throughout the year. Each child receives a card telling them that they are being prayed for by the donor.
Volunteers are needed for this ministry in the areas of publicity, sign-ups, organizing donations and assisting with the purchase of new uniforms. Those unable to shop for a child may make a monetary donation directly through the church (Matthew 25:37-40).
