One of the core values of First Baptist Church Tomball is Outreach. We endeavor to touch our region and world with the message of Jesus Christ. Some of the ways that we reach out is through our support of the IMB (International Mission Board) and the NAMB (North American Mission Board) which are both entities of the Southern Baptist Convention. We also support TEAM (Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries) and the Tomball Pregnancy Center. There are also many groups within our church who go on Mission Trips within the State of Texas and overseas.
CURRENT MISSION PROJECTS
First Baptist Church Tomball recently received an award from the IMB (International Mission Board) for our 2014 Lottie Moon Offering. The Manchuria Challenge Award recognizes churches that give over $100 per capita to the offering. It represents only 2 percent of the 50,000 churches that comprise the Southern Baptist Convention. Why a "Manchuria Challenge?" Lottie Moon died on December 24, 1912 on a ship named the Manchuria. Weighing only 50 pounds, she was carried aboard to return to America to be nursed back to health. She had given everything, including her own food, to her beloved Chinese people. The offering supports 4,700-plus missionaries and their families as they spread the gospel around the world. The award was presented to Pastor James Clark by Joe and Julie Silby who are serving as IMB Missionaries in Prague.
First Baptist Church is touching Tomball. It is an effort of our adult Bible Study Departments to represent the character of Christ to our community in a "hands on" way. Each Adult Department will be providing various kinds of expressions of love and appreciation to these groups who have given so much to us: the Tomball Police Department, the Tomball Fire Department, Emergency Medical Services, Tomball Regional Hospital Emergency Room Staff, Tomball Public Works Department, TOMAGWA (Tomball, Magnolia & Waller Medical Ministry) and homebound members of our Church.
