Mission Support


FBC has been ministering in Estonia for twenty years.BMBC participated in providing support that made it possible for some to be able to join the mission team. In 2011 BMBC accepted the challenge to help provide one of several cabins to be used as residences for youth attending summer camp sessions annually in Estonia.In addition to financially underwriting the cost of a cabin, class member Ronnie Allen generously gave on his time to the mission team and served as one of the principal managers of the project.

Thompson Creek Cemetery is located on a parcel surrounded by private property in northern Brazos County off of Mumford Road.The earliest identifiable burial was in 1877 with thirty-eight of the sixty identifiable death dates being in the 1800s.The cemetery, long abandoned and grown up, was discovered to contain the burials of Rev. William Bartlett Eaves, the organizing pastor of First Baptist Church of Bryan and five members of his family.Descendants of others buried there contacted the church and inquired about the church assuming maintenance responsibilities for the cemetery. The contact was referred to J. W. Kornegay for consideration and J enlisted Ronnie Allen and Ralph Girlinghouse to possibly volunteer to lead the work effort on behalf of BMBC. At their collective request the BMBC agreed to take on the task of cleaning it up, restoring the fences, building a new entrance and maintaining it going forward.Restoration has been completed. Thick brush has been cleared, removed, raked, and burned. Stones have been straightened and repaired and wildflowers and grass planted. The fence has been repaired and a new gate and sign have been erected.In April 2012 the cemetery was fully covered with bluebonnets.



 

 

Shut-in Visitation, by members of the BMBC to nursing homes, hospitals, and private residences of class and church members helps to brighten the spirits of those being visited as well as providing them a way to keep in touch with their many friends at First Baptist Church. Those participating through one afternoon per week each two or three months receive more of an uplifting than those who are visited. Class members George Nelson and Neil Rowan take their turn visiting.
