First Baptist Church, Russellville, on missioncomment (0)

August 12, 2010


Richard Parker, minister of youth and education of First Baptist Church, Russellville, led a team of 61 to Rochester, N.Y., July 10–16. It was their 20th trip to the area.

The Franklin Baptist Church team held a four-day day camp for the children living in The Pines of Perinton-Fairport, a government-subsidized housing project. Approximately 110 children — ranging in age from preschool to high school — attended.

Following the camp theme of Celebration, the children celebrated a different holiday each day, ending the camp with a birthday celebration in honor of First, Russellville’s 20th year. At the birthday celebration, each child received a bear and a Bible. Five decisions were made for Christ the entire week.

During the 20 years Russellville has been ministering in Rochester, 11 students have gone into full-time ministry and three have become International Mission Board representatives.
