A great amount of unity comes from doing ministry together. It is our desire to touch every home and every life in San Juan County with the good news of Jesus Christ.

Our senior ladies have a wonderful quilting ministry that meets every Thursday at 9:00am. They provide handmade quilts to ministries throughout San Juan County.  If you love to quilt or want to learn, come join us any time!  We love quilting, but at the same time we love enjoying each other's company and growing in Christ together as we share our lives.

 

Community Garden

Our community garden gives us the opportunity to help those in need,  especially during these difficult economic times. A Community Garden is not just a place to grow food. It is an opportunity to express our faith in the community and interact with God and His creation. Working together as a church community provdes a wonderful sense of accomplishment and offers tremendous opportunity to strengthen intergenerational ties as young and old work side by side, weeding, watering, and planting.

 

Food Distribution

 

On the first Saturday of each month First Baptist Bloomfield distributes grcoeries to families in need. It is our desire to serve and "love on" the community. Through this ministry we are able to communicate the love of Christ in a tangible way. Familes can sign up for the food distribution by calling or visiting the church office. The distribution begins at 9:00 AM.
