First Baptist, SCW is a missions-minded church. In 2018, our mission giving was $133,197.
Each year we provide financial assistance to local ministries (see below). Our Missions Committee researches the ministries needing help, and support is offered on a yearly basis. We also provide vital prayer support and participate in numerous ministry projects, such as clothing/household donations for Set Free- Phoenix and Solution Church; a Baby Bottle Collection Drive for New Life Pregnancy; and a local food bank Work Day. A certain percentage of our church’s monthly offerings are also given to the Arizona Southern Baptist Convention, the Cooperative Program, and Thrive Association, to be used by those entities for mission endeavors. Our church is amazingly generous as we support those who “go tell” the story of Christ.
