We take being good neighbor very seriously.
In the projects described here, the church
partners with other groups in Radford and
the greater New River Valley to share
friendship, hope and care.
WOMEN'S RESOURCE CENTER
First Baptist and the Women's Resource Center's Cornerstone House have entered a grant-funded mentoring partnership. Among the plans are events in which congregational and community resource persons will provide instruction for a wide range of topics for families who will soon step out into full independence. A direct partnership between families at Cornerstone and individual families at First Baptist is also in the works, as well as an annual Easter party.
THE RADFORD CLOTHING BANK
We help fund and staff this city-wide effort to provide needed clothing for struggling families. The Clothing Bank also provides new clothing for children at the beginning of each school year, and works to ensure every child has a warm, winter coat.
RADFORD/FAIRLAWN DAILY BREAD
We support the local soup kitchen, providing warm lunches on weekdays, year-round.
