Backyard Bible Clubs Attract Over 100 Children

 

FMBC and two youth groups from Mississippi joined forces to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ into area apartment communities.  First Baptist Church, Petal MS and Sebastopol Baptist Church, Sebastopol MS came to Dallas last week for an authentic urban missions experience. They got what they came for, as they conducted Backyard Bible Clubs at Pleasant Woods, Wildflower and Shiloh Village Apts.  They were able to minister to people from Somalia, Myanmar, Bhutan, Mexico and other places. 

 

More than 100 were in attendance.  Many professed faith in Jesus Christ for the first time.  Thanks to God, the apartment management, the youth groups from Petal and Sebastopol, as well as the people from FMBC who provided lunches and other logistical support.
