Many of you have been in prayerful anticipation of how our church can assist after seeing the flooding brought about by Hurricane Harvey.  First Baptist Winnfield is currently in conversation with the Louisiana Baptist State Convention in order that we may be on the cutting edge of aid and assistance after the waters recede.  We have also reached out to local church pastors in the communities that have been devastated.
Currently, the needs are being assessed. As soon as this can be determined by both our baptist entities and fellow churches, we will begin working towards mission opportunities and specific needed donations.  If you would like to be a part of one of the mission efforts, please complete the online training video for mud outs.  Click the word MUDOUT to view the training video.
In the meantime, if you feel lead to donate money, funds have been set up through the North American Mission Board, the Lousisana Baptist State Convention, and First Baptist Church Winnfield. Any money given directly to this cause through FBCWinnfield will be used ONLY to assist in this recovery effort.
