Ongoing Missions

Missionary Kenneth Murphy

First Baptist Church supports Kenneth Murphy and his family as they serve away from home spreading the Word and providing for the needs of those they serve.

Backpacks of Hope/Christmas Backpacks

The Christmas Backpacks project sponsored by the Georgia Baptist Missions Board provides backpacks for children and teens ages up to 17 years of age residing in Appalachia as well as in the most poverty stricken counties in Southwest Georgia. The backpacks may include a Bible, books, clothing, toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and food. First Baptist Church of Sylvania is helping to meet the physical and spiritual needs of these children and teens by providing backpacks this year.

Operation Christmas Child

Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief organization. Our mission is to provide local partners around the world with shoe boxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies as a means of reaching out to children in their own communities with the Good News of Jesus Christ. We ship these simple gifts outside the United States to children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster, famine, and disease; and to children living on Native American reservations in the U.S.
