Being the "light of the world" in your own backyard and in your community.
13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt has become tasteless, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled under foot by men.
14 “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden;15 nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.
16 “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Circumstances along the journey of life are sometimes beyond our control and one of the ways that our church can give a hand up is by provided a hot meal for a family or individual. First Lubbock is partnering with Fiesta Domingo, a ministry of Aldersgate Church at Hope Community of Shalom. Many whom we will feed are either homeless or are just having a hard time putting food on the table.
Once a quarter on a Sunday night FBC members will get together and cook a meal to feed 125 to 150 people at the Hope Community of Shalom, which is housed in the Asbury Methodist Church building.
Volunteers will be recruited through the Sunday School departments. If you are interested in learning more about this ministry, contact Jerry Ramirez 747-1027.
