We strive to reach our local community, state, nation and world with the Good News of Jesus Christ! There’s a place for you and your family to get involved.
ONGOING COMMUNITY MISSIONS
Saturday Serve is a monthly community service. We gather and are ready to serve Hampton in a variety of ways, sharing God’s love with those we meet.
We have a growing Hispanic Ministry at Hampton First Baptist. Every Sunday we host a Hispanic worship service. Each Sunday and Wednesday we offer an adult Hispanic Bible study. We also host various ministry events at the clubhouse in Clover Ranch Mobile Home Community in Hampton.

We support the local Pregnancy Resource Center in Henry County. Each year a love offering is collected for the center. Church member, Don Shelley is on the board of directors and does a lot of great work around the center. If you desire to serve the Lord and the community, the Pregnancy Resource Center is always looking for more volunteers. You can volunteer to answer phones, work on building maintainence or even work as a counselor. For more information, contact the church office, or visit the Pregnancy Resource Center website.
We support the Christian Women’s Center in Sunnyside. The CWC runs a 12 month discipleship program that offers refuge to women in crisis, believing these women can be restored to physical, emotional and spiritual well being through the love of Christ. Church member, Becky Smith, is the Executive Director of the center. The center provides certified Christian counseling, classes, health & dental screenings, bible studies, opportunity to volunteer and partnerships with community services for our residents. All services to our residents are offered at a nominal fee due to the donations from individuals, churches and organizations in the area. Also providing income for the center are donations of household items, furniture and clothing sold at the Christian Women’s Thrift Store in Griffin. Find out more information at the Christian Women’s Center website.
