At the local level, First Baptist is a member of the Rehoboth Association which has varied ministries.  The Christian Social Ministry and the Appalachian Ministry are just two of these ministries.  

Ministries

Sunday School

We have Sunday School classes for all ages.

Nursing Home Ministry

Until COVIS-19 restricted access, First Baptist Church Marshallville led a Sunday School class at the Oaks Nursing Home every Sunday.  Each February  the church sponsors a birthday party with finger foods and drinks to celebrate the birthdays of those residents having a birthday during the month.  Members also provide gifts for the residents at Christmas.

Missions

First Baptist Church Marshallville supports the Southern Baptist Convention by giving to local, state, national and worldwide missions.  Separate Annie Armstrong and Lottie Moon offerings are taken.   In addition to these mission programs, members donate canned goods and other food pantry needs for needy families, and clothing for the Appalachian Ministry.  Also, each Christmas members pack shoe boxes for the Appalachian Ministry of providing gifts to children of Appalachia who would otherwise receive nothing for Christmas..  This year we will be sending 90 boxes. Some of our individual members volunteer in various ministries such as working with the Appalachian Ministry sorting donations of clothing and household items, and loading trucks (Rehoboth Baptist Association).  In the past some members have worked at the Georgia National Fair at the Baby Changing Station (sponsored by the Rehoboth Baptist Association), some giving free ice water (to include tracts and gifts for children) (through Campers on Mission).  Some have volunteered at  several ports at the Seamen's Centers to minister to, and meet the needs of, seafarers from around the world as they leave the ships for a few hours while in port (Campers on Mission).
