To the World

Our Video Ministry
All of our Sunday Morning Worship and Sunday Evening Bible study services are recorded
by our video team using a combination of 6 video cameras and recorded to dvd. All on-
screen titles and video editing are done in-house. Our services are shown on Danville cable channel 6 on Sunday at
4:30p.m. and Tuesday at 6:00p.m.
Our video team also converts our services to digital format for viewing on the web.
We have copies of past services, special events, etc. and can make copies for $6.00 per copy. This helps
cover the cost of the media and copying.

What is Operation Christmas Child?

Operation Christmas Child is a Project of international Christian relief organization
Samaritan’s Purse that demonstrates God’s love to needy children through gift-filled
shoeboxes.With the help of churches and ministries around the world,the boxes are
delivered to many boys and girls who have never received any Christmas presents.
Through these gifts, they and their families are introduced to God’s greatest gift,
Jesus Christ,and many lives are changed for eternity.
More than 8 million suffering children in more than 100 countries on six continents will
receive personal, gift-filled shoeboxes through this kids-helping-kids project.
Each year, caring individuals,families,schools, churches,scout troops, civic clubs, and other organizations
in thousands of cities in all 50 states and 10 additional countries will fill more than 8 millionshoe boxes
with personal gifts, school supplies, candy, necessity items, family photos, and notes of encouragement.
More than 250,000 volunteers worldwide, including some 126,000 volunteers in the United States will join
forces to prepare the boxes for transport to distant lands.
After the boxes are collected at the local distrobution centers, thay are shipped to one of 6 major centers
in the US. There, each box is inspected and prepared for overseas shipment, then loaded onto some of
the world’s largest cargo planes, trucks, and sea containers bound for the far reaches of the earth.
Once the gifts are transported to countries around the world, Samaritan’s Purse teams and partners
transport them by truck, bus, train, helicopter, boat, foot, dog, sled, mule, and even camel to hand-deliver
the gifts to hurting children.

The Bucket Project

Bucket Project Graphic Sketch2

Junction City First Baptist is now part of The Bucket Project, a ministry that involves packing 5 gallon buckets with specified items and sending them to terminally ill children and adults in Africa. The smallest items we often take for granted–washcloths, bendy straws, soap–provide comfort for those who are suffering, often from the AIDS virus. Local missionaries work with pastors to get buckets to those most in need. And the best part? When the buckets are delivered, the gospel message is shared to give hope in Jesus Christ.
