First Baptist Church Minnesota Ave

Strayhorn EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH MINISTRY

”Let your heart retain my words; keep my commands and live. Get Wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; love her and she will keep you. Wisdom is the principle thing; therefore, get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding.” Proverbs 4:4-7 (KJV)


In support of the Pastor’s vision for First Baptist Church, the Strayhorn Educational Outreach Ministry will plan and implement a supplemental bible-based program of training and educational empowerment for First Baptist Church congregants and the broader community.

ACTIVITIES:
