FBC Morrisville gets out of church

Sunday morning is the traditional time for church services, right? Well, in 99% of cases you would be right, but in this case, Sunday morning was the time for serving the community. One Sunday last month, First Baptist Church of Morrisville sent the bulk of its regular Sunday morning worshippers out wearing their bright orange shirts to serve various places in the community, including staining the playground at Williamson Park, doing yard work at the Ivins Center, the Senior Center, the YMCA, Summerseat, and the corner of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Avenues. The event was called, “Get Out Of Church Sunday,” and the rationale behind it is that the church is not just a place to meet, but a group of believers called to serve. So serve they did. There was also a group at the church making care packages for the church’s foreign missionaries.
