OUTREACH

Doing good for our city one person at a time.



P

art of learning to be a Christ-follower is doing acts of service. Seminole First Baptist Church is very involved in community outreach projects, partnering with mission endeavors in our area to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. Here are a few examples of areas of service in which we are currently engaged:


CELEBRATE RECOVERY



Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that help us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount, rather than psychological theory. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, hang-ups, and habits by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped people now at 20,000 churches worldwide. Celebrate Recovery is a biblical alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, and many other 12 step recovery programs.

 

Both leaders of Celebrate Recovery are members of Seminole First Baptist Church. Our program has small groups, gender-specific to help those struggling with lying, food, drugs, toxic relationships, shopping, gossiping, alcohol, sexual abuse, etc. We meet every Friday night at 6:30 at Seminole First Baptist Church.



FREE ENGLISH CLASSES FOR ADULTS



This ministry is dedicated to helping those new to our country learn the English language. Our dynamic and caring teachers are trained to provide effective and meaningful English language experiences to all people, regardless of faith, race, creed or belief.

 

For the last 10 years, we have helped English Language learners from Asia, Europe, Central and South America enhance their interpersonal skills & assimilate into American society through the learning of conversational, colloquial & formal written English. Many students have become our friends and American citizens.

 

The classes are fun, the teachers are wonderful and it’s all FREE! Come learn English with us from September to May!!

 

Class schedule: Tuesdays and Thursdays – 6:30pm – 9:00pm



GOOD NEWS CLUB

We have teamed up with Child Evangelism Fellowship to launch several after-school clubs in public elementary schools to bring the Gospel to young people. Several of our youth are engaged as volunteer leaders in this ministry. We currently have clubs at Seminole, Starkey & North Shore Elementary Schools, Wee Friends Pre-School of SFBC, and ESL Classes at our church weekday evenings.


CHILD EVANGELISM FELLOWSHIP

is the world’s largest evangelistic outreach to children. Last year, CEF reached over 12 million children in over 179 countries. We partner with this ministry in conducting after school clubs in elementary schools. We are currently involved with Seminole, Starkey, North Shore Elementary Schools, Wee Friends Pre-School, and ESL Classes at SFBC. Our goal is to establish Good New Clubs on all elementary school campuses in our community.
