Fellowship Baptist Association is a network of Southern Baptist Convention and Missouri Baptist Convention churches committed to work together in an effort to follow the Great Commandment and fulfill the Great Commission. Our churches are primarily located in Benton, Hickory, and St. Clair counties in the great state of Missouri.....and we hope you'll consider making one of them your church home!!
A seminary professor once asked a question of some international students, "What do you understand the term 'Fellowship' to mean?" There was a moment of silence and one finally said, "Fellows in the same ship?" Now, isn't that even more true than what we usually think of "Fellowship?"! I hope as you think of Fellowship Baptist Association, it's in the light of this unique definition....that we are here together.....serving Christ and one another.

Each year our association has a group of volunteers who will minister at the Evangelism Tent at the Missouri State Fair. Our scheduled time to volunteer is August 18 from 9:30 AM until 2:00 PM. If you would be willing to help with this outreach project please give me a call at the office. August 4, 7:00 PM at the associational office there will be a time of training for voulunteers who are willing to come to the fair. Even if you can't help at the fair, this is a good training opportunity for sharing a personal testimony!!
We will be taking coats/hats/gloves to Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. HOWEVER....we plan on taking them in September rather than December!! It's already winter there in December....so we want to get the coats etc there earlier this year! So.....please have your items to the Associational Office or Cross Timbers Baptist Church NO LATER THAN September 16. Thank you!!
