Our desire and mission is to express love by caring for the widows, widowers and seniors of our church family, by lending a helping hand where needed. (James 1:27) This ministry will provide a means for the family of First Baptist Church to express the love of Christ through compassionate service.
Many skilled and talented members of our church have volunteered to serve in the Helping Hands ministry and we are all very excited and humbled that you would call and allow us to serve you! If you find that you could use some help with home maintenance, cleaning, automobile troubles or a project you could just use a little help with, then we are here for you.
The helping Hands ministry is currently focused on meeting the needs of our immediate church family. Each request we receive will be evaluated to determine if it’s something that one of our Helping Hands volunteers can do. If it is beyond our skill level, we will do our best to recommend a reputable service provider and follow up to ensure you have received the help you need.
We have set up an on-call service that will take calls for the Helping Hands ministry 24/7. You can call anytime and provide your name, phone number and service you need help with. A short time after that you will be contacted by a Helping Hands coordinator who will ask some questions to determine how we can best help you. The Helping Hands coordinator will also ask what times you will be available and then choose the best volunteers to lend a helping hand. Soon after that you will be contacted by the volunteer to schedule a time/date to meet you at your home.
The Helping Hands on-call phone number is 855-404-7962.
PLEASE NOTE: Material cost will be your responsibility and the labor will be provided by our volunteers.
