At First Central Baptist Church, we look for opportunities to be a blessing in our community. Whether it be as a polling place for elections, hosting Trunk ‘R Treat as a safe Halloween alternative, or doing service projects, our we want to be a good neighbor and make a contribution to our part of the city. Like Abraham of old (Genesis 12:1-3), we believe we have been blessed in order to be a blessing. We believe that good works can be a dynamic witness (Matthew 5:13-16), and that by serving others, we are serving Christ (Matthew 25:31-46).
On Saturday, several of our congregation met at River Mills Center, the soon-to-open new Senior Center in Chicopee, MA. We helped spruce up the grounds by pulling weeds in all the planters around the center.
