There are two parts to our current Community Outreach Program here at First Baptist Church Belen!

The first is BACKPACKS FOR KIDS. This program is designed for children who need additional sustenance over the weekend.

The child will take home a backpack filled with food on Friday and return it on Monday (to be refilled by FBCB).

The second part of this ministry is BAGS FOR CYFD. This is designed for children and teenagers that may be removed from

a home or school, and unexpectedly placed in a foster home with only what they have on their backs. 

Please pray with us over this ministry, over our community, and over each individual that receives a backpack or bag from FBCB.

Please bring items (list available below) to the Church Foyer on Sundays or to the Church Office during the week.

A team will pack these bags with love each Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.

(Please call the Church Office or speak to Ernest Sanchez during service if you wish to join our faithful team!)

Monetary gifts are also welcome. Thank you for giving, and thank you for praying!
