Project Next

(the best is yet to come)

In 2015 First Baptist Church voted to purchase the final piece of property on our block, which was the historic YMCA building. By God’s grace and through generous support of our members, our church was able to purchase the 1420 Sumter building and begin renovations on phase one of the project. We called this joint-effort Project: NEXT and there is no denying that it has been a wonderful success!

It is a beautiful building that has become a great resource for our church to reach the next generation in our community. It is used on a regular basis by our middle school, high school, and college ministries.

For more information on how you can continue to support this worthwhile project or prayerfully consider joining us, please contact our Finance Office for a pledge card. 803.343.8580.
