Kate Trotter, Owen Chitwood and Henry Hughes were busy bagging cookies and candy in assembly-line fashion. They were having fun with a purpose in the fellowship hall at First Baptist Cornelia. The bags of goodies were later taken to community servants at the police station, fire department and 911 Call Center.

These members of Girls In Action and Boys In Action were part of First Baptist Cornelia's Operation InAsMuch, Community Compassion Day, October 8, 2011. The annual event began with breakfast in the church's fellowship hall and a short devotion by Pastor Eric Spivey, then teams from every age group and ability from the church fanned out to serve. opinasmuch breakfast
  Men's Ministry participants wielded hammers at Bailey House, a home being constructed  for a disabled child and his family, while the Youth Group led Backyard Bible Club at Meadowbrook Trailer Park. There were Women On Mission and other church volunteers cooking a hearty lunch at the Cornelia Soup Kitchen and leading recreation activities at The Oaks nursing facility. Back at the church fellowship hall, still more volunteers were baking cookies and bagging holiday items for distribution to women at Arrendale State Prison. Operation InAsMuch is just one way members of First Baptist Cornelia seek to be the hands and feet of Jesus Christ in this region and the world. Kingdom work is carried on daily, weekly and monthly in the lives of the ministry-minded Mission Groups here. Plug-in to one today!
