Arms Around Canton – Community Service Ministry | Meeting tangible needs to impact our community FOR CHRIST. Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying: Who should I send? Who will go for Us? I said: Here I am. Send me. Isaiah 6:8

This ministry is designed to serve practical needs for church members and the community around our church members. Some of the projects might include yard work, handyman projects, emergency repairs to their home, organizing car repairs or other transportation issues. The list goes one. Our vision is for this ministry to grow and become a true picture of the practical love of Christ from our local body of believers to the community in which the Lord has place us. We are blessed to be a blessing!


Feed My Sheep – Food Pantry Ministry | Meeting needs for hunger and basic food in our community, and sharing the love of Christ through this service and a gospel conversation with everyone who comes for help.

Every first Saturday of the month, the Feed My Sheep ministry needs volunteers to help with registering families who come. We also need helpers for packing the food boxes based on their needs, strong helpers to get the food boxes moved out to their vehicles, and other volunteers to be willing to counsel with the families, share the gospel of Christ with them and to pray with them and encourage them.

The greatest need above all is donated food items. You can buy 2 of every dry storage item on your shopping list and bring one of them to church. Donations are accepted every Sunday in the large blue barrel in the church narthex (main foyer). There is also a receiving container near the elevator doors on the ground floor.


BranchesJohn 15:5
A ministry designed to reach out to those in our community that are in need.

Come and join an excellent team that meets the first Saturday of every month to prepare meals. The community we serve ranges from the elderly in nursing homes to anyone who might have the need for some extra food. We personally deliver approximately 50 meals; we also work alongside the Feed My Sheep ministry to make sure the families coming through the food pantry get to take home a fresh meal. In total, between 150-200 meals are prepared each month. All the work and supplies rely solely on donations from church members.

We support the Love Peru 5K, an event to raise funds for the Peru orphanage connected with First Baptist Canton. We also support our semi-annual missions conference called the Global Impact Celebration. Our future vision is to team up with the youth and other ministries in our church to serve and prepare meals for new areas in our community. Volunteers are always welcome.
