Peace by Piece Quilting
Peace by Piece has completed, and distributed, over 1000 quilts. New babies, both within the church and throughout Whitley County, have received the gift of a baby quilt. Other quilts have been given to families that are suffering from disasters, individuals in nursing homes or those that are home-bound. Peace by Piece meets every Tuesday in the church basement to sew and fellowship together.
The Food Pantry
Each month, the Food Pantry works to meet the nutritional needs of families in the Whitley County area. First Baptist works through Corbin’s United Effort and God’s Pantry of Lexington to supply food; along with other necessities such as coats, shoes, hygiene items, laundry detergent, and diapers. The Food Pantry meets the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30 PM. Volunteers will help pack and distribute groceries to 40-70 families.
