Coming in October: Religion 101

Religion 101 - 1024x512.png

Beginning Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Above all else, Jesus commanded us to love God and neighbor. But how can we love our neighbor if we do not take time to see the world through their eyes?

Religion 101 starts us down the road of knowing those who do not believe as we do and who do not believe in God at all. There's no cost and childcare will be provided.

Facilitator: Rev. Dr. Paul Wallace
Location: Carreker Hall

Did you know First Baptist Decatur has an incredible clothes closet where people in need can come “shop” for clothes at no cost to them? It’s open on Wednesday mornings from 10am-12pm and staffed by a group of amazing volunteers.

But we cannot do this work without your help! The clothing closet is in tremendous need of clothing donations, including:

Men’s Clothing of any type: 

  • Pants (casual, dress)

  • Shorts

  • Shirts (long and short sleeve: t-shirts, golf shirts, casual, dress)

  • Shoes (sneakers, dress shoes)

  • Underwear

  • Socks

  • Belts

  • Jackets

  • Hats (baseball caps, whatever)

At the moment we have an excess of Women’s Clothing due to your generous donations!
However, we always can use the following accessory items:

  • Purses

  • Jewelry

  • Lingerie

  • Gowns

  • Robes

  • Shoes

  • Socks

Drop off Your Donations
