September 28, 2011, Clarksville, TN – Members of First Baptist Church, Clarksville, participated in a community service event called FirstServe on the Aug. 25-27 weekend. The purpose of this weekend was to meet immediate physical needs in our downtown, military and college communities.
Motivated by the call of God to His people to “seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you” (Jeremiah 29:7), church members gave of their time, resources and energy to share the love of Jesus with their neighbors.
Projects during the FirstServe weekend included assisting new freshmen as they moved into their dorms at APSU, putting together care packages for redeployed military families and completing beautification projects downtown.
The downtown projects had church members raising walls at a Habitat for Humanity home site, painting, cleaning and providing gift cards to teachers at Norman Smith Elementary School and completing various home repair and improvement projects for residents on Daniel Street and in other areas throughout the city.
