Lucy Helm Mission Circle
What We Do . . .
The Lucy Helm Mission Circle of First Baptist Church is a group of Christian ladies destined for God’s purpose. We meet at the church or in the homes of our members on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. to support mission work in the church, community, and Area IV of the Great Rivers Region. All ladies of the church are invited to participate in the work of the Lucy Helm Mission Circle.
Here are just some of the projects we have conducted during the past year:
- Missions: Financial support to missionaries in Ethiopia, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic of the Congo
- Empty medicine bottles collected and sent to Haiti for re-use
- Penny collection to buy preventive medicine for school children in Nicaragua
- Health kits, sewing kits, and school kits sent to hospitals in the Philippines
- Purchase of Christmas gifts for local children and seniors living in care facilities
Lucy Helm Mission Circle members bring Valentine’s Day treats to the home-bound and those living in care facilities.
