FBC Community Garden
The goal of the Community Garden is to build relationships with people who live near our church in order to share the Good News of God with them. We want to share the bounty through giving away the produce; we want to share the opportunity to provide for families through growing food. We want God’s purpose to be fulfilled in this garden, as well.

Members of FBC Plano, you are invited to accept responsibility for a garden plot! Members of our community are invited, as well. Contact the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you would like to sign up for a garden plot.

We invite you to donate new and good quality used garden tools. Cash donations and gift cards to Home Depot or Lowes can also be used to purchase the tools we need. The Community Garden Ministry Team thanks you for your support of this local outreach mission.

Plano Homeless and Hungry Ministry

Since October 2009, this First Baptist Church ministry has sought to provide encouragement, prayer, food, clothing, copies of God’s Word, and hope in Jesus Christ to men and women in Plano who are homeless and/or hungry. We meet on the street each week, distributing to those in need. More than 2900 small bags of food have been distributed during that time. Trust has been earned, friendships have developed, and Christ’s care has been shared.

During the cold winter months, our friends have greatly appreciated your generous donations of warm clothing.

The Student Department (7th-12th grades), many Sunday School classes, the Breakfast Bunch members, and other groups and individuals have contributed in significant ways to this ministry. Donations of pre-packaged ready-to-eat food, blankets and season-appropriate clothing are always accepted. New socks are especially appreciated.

For more information, contact Tim Kurth (469-226-1834) or John Reglin (972-423-8558).

Blankets for Zacatecas

Zacatecas is a high-desert area of Mexico where the winters are extremely cold and the people are very poor. Through our partnership with Dr. Lee Baggett and Manos Hermanas we are able to purchase blankets in Mexico for $5.00 each to be distributed to the people living there. We encourage everyone to be a part of this effort. These blankets make the difference between life or death for many people each winter.

Please designate “Blankets” on your envelope to be sure it reaches the correct missions project fund.

"The world is bigger than you think - God is bigger than you know - God's call on your life is greater than you've understood."  Jesus' words to Simon in Luke 5:10 foreshadow the remainder of the big fisherman's life:  "Don't be afraid; from now on you will catch men."

The world, our God, His call.  In 2004, our congregation took significant steps as we began to participate with the Baptist World Alliance in new ways.  Rather than participating through surrogate organizations, we began to contribute directly to the BWA when the fundamentalist leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention withdrew financial support and quit because they could not control the direction of the BWA when the delegates allowed the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship to join.  After the Baptist General Convention of Texas joined the Baptist World Alliance, our pastor was asked to serve as a member of the Genereal Council of the BWA, representing Texas Baptists and our church.  The General Council is the decision-making body of the BWA.

What is the BWA?  The Baptist World Alliance is a fellowship of 214 Baptist conventions and unions comprising a membership of more than 37 million baptized believers.  The BWA unites Baptists worldwide, leads in world evangalism, responds to people in need, defends human rights, and promotes theological reflection.

In October 2009, Dr. Neville Callam, General Secretary of the Baptist World Alliance, preached at FBC Plano - encouraging us from the Woprd of God to be faithful in taking the Gospel to the whole world.

A German named Johann Gerhard Oncken was baptized in 1834 and helped form a church in Hamburg.  He traveled across Europe, where state churches had effectively prevented "free church" expression to share the gospel.  When asked if he was a missionary, he responded, "Jeder Baptist ein Missionar" (Every Baptist is  a missionary").

The world.  Our God.  His call.  Let's get after it!
