As we head toward the holiday season, we remember those who would be touched and encouraged by an Overflow of love from our hearts…and our pantries! This year we will share with others by turning our monthly food boxes into Holiday Bags, overflowing with food donations from across our church and community.

South Africa Orphan Sponsorship
First Baptist Spartanburg has joined hands with the children placed in homes that we helped to build in East London, South Africa. We desire to give financially to support the children and to pour our love into their lives that they will know the love of their Heavenly Father in a safe and nurturing environment. Find out how you can sponsor one of these precious children that God has entrusted in our care.
We now have 39 children residing in 5 homes that FBS helped to build and we need more sponsors in order to cover them all. We would love to tell you more about the children and the sponsorship initiative. Contact K. Hurry at 864-699-4207 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how you can be a part of this wonderful ministry.
