In 1995, Freemason Street Baptist Church began a partnership ministry with Baptist congregations in Cuba through the Fraternity of Baptists. Over the years, deep and meaningful Christian relationships have developed between our Norfolk church and the congregations in Matanzas. For over a decade teams from FSBC have traveled to the island of Cuba to fellowship, provide encouragement, offer humanitarian aid and learn from one another. Relationships formed on these trips last a lifetime, and we are always looking for new participants!
Members of our congregation have been trained in disaster relief and often travel to area affected by storm or tragedy. In the past few years, teams have gone to Jamacia, Mississippi and the Eastern Shore of Virginia.
Stop Hunger Now
Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief organization that coordinates the distribution of food and other life-saving aid around the world. The FSBC community has often participated in their meal packaging program that provides volunteers the opportunity to package dehydrated, high protein, and highly nutritious meals that are used in crisis situations around the world.
Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF)
The mission of the CBF is to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission. As you discern your calling, you can embrace the world through the Fellowship through eight specific ministry areas: poverty & transformation, disaster response, internationals, church starts & faith sharing, justice & peacemaking, healthcare, economic development, and education ministries. FSBC is also partnered with CBF-Virginia.
