Missions Emphasis Month
First Baptist Church of Rockville is a church of the nations, for the nations, therefore: We exist to win, disciple, and send people across the street and around the world with the message of Jesus Christ.
At First Baptist, we are committed to spreading the Gospel. Consequently, we have committed to providing assistance to missionaries in the US and around the world. Every year, we collect money through pledges for our Faith Promise Mission Fund. This fund exclusively supports the work of missionaries and organizations that help spread the Gospel. This month, we are gathering the pledges
Our Mission Emphasis Month theme this year is “The Gospel Resounds.” Listen to Pastor Lee’s introduction on What Missions is Really All About. Some of our missionaries will be stopping by in the next few weeks to update us on their work:
Andy and Nanette Palm (Belize)
Every year, we gather pledges for our Faith Promise Missions Fund. The pledges are not tithes; they are a commitment or promise you make to give weekly to the Lord to support our missionaries.
Prayerfully consider making pledge for the 2017-2018 Faith Promise Missions Fund. You are welcome to give at any time. For the next few Sundays, we will have pledge cards to complete. We will collect pledges from September 2017 to August 2018.
Last year, we pledged a total $80,649 and supported more than 40 missionaries and mission organizations. A complete list is available at church. For our missionaries’ safety, we do not list all missionaries on our website and are vague in some descriptions. Here are a few missionaries and organizations we support.
