It's Christmas in July!

As part of our mission with Samaritan’s Purse, we are participating in Operation Christmas Child. This year’s goal for us is 100 boxes. If you are not familiar with Operation Christmas Child, follow this link to our page that contains more information about spreading the Gospel through this ministry with Samaritan’s Purse. This is all online and so easy. Simply click on any of the buttons that say “Build a Box”. These buttons will take you directly to First Baptist Church Lakeland’s page with Samaitain’s purse. Then simply select toys and other fun items you’d like to include from the collection, and personalize your gift with your own letter and photo. Samaritan’s Purse will pack the gift for you and send it on its way for a suggested donation of just $25. Your box or boxes will count toward our goal of 100 boxes from FBCL!

About Jesus

Each shoebox you pack helps a local church around the world tell a child about Jesus, God’s Greatest Gift. Many of them will grow in their faith and learn how to tell friends and family about Him through our discipleship program called The Greatest Journey.

Proclaim the Gospel

In a new initiative, we are going island to island in the Pacific to take the Gospel to a half a million children over the next few years, as part of our commitment to “proclaim the Gospel to the whole creation” (Mark 16:15, ESV).

Unreached People

In sending the Gospel to the ends of the earth, we are also sharing God’s Word with dozens of unreached people groups and going to hard-toreach places to make His Name known.

Decisions for Christ

This has resulted in more than 2 million children making decisions for Christ and over 1,000 churches being started in one year! For example, there’s now a church in a remote village in Namibia among the Himba unreached people group
