The Homebound Ministry was begun in 1999 with James 1:27 as our inspiration. Caring people of First Baptist serve as volunteers in this ministry. At this time we have 20 homebound people and 16 people in area nursing homes, but the list changes constantly.
Our church has a sing-a-long service at High Hope Nursing Home the third Thursday of the month at 3:00 p.m. Our pastor, Dr. David Holder, gives a short devotional and we also have several of our own volunteer to sing solos and duets to bring the light of hope and joy to their lives. There is also a teddy bear ministry in place, and during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, baskets are taken to the homebound.
If you know of someone who needs to be added to our list, please call or e-mail our Church receptionist with the information so that our volunteers can minister to their needs.
If you are interested in becoming a part of our Homebound Ministry Team, please contact the church office @ (337)527-5231.
“The end of the world is coming soon. Therefore, be earnest and disciplined in your prayers. Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins. Cheerfully share your home with those who need a meal or a place to stay. God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God’s generosity can flow through you. Are you called to be a speaker? Then speak as though God himself were speaking through you. Are you called to help others? Do it with all the strength and energy that God supplies. Then God will be given glory in everything through Jesus Christ. All glory and power belong to him forever and ever. Amen.” I Peter 4:7-11, NLT
