FBC 1:27 is the Orphan Care ministry of First Baptist Church, named for James 1:27, which calls us to care for vulnerable children in their time of need.  The vision of FBC 1:27 is to educate the church on our current crisis in the Columbia area, equip our church members who will be serving as foster and adoptive families with resources they need to be successful and embrace families who are serving on the front lines as they love and nurture these vulnerable children.


We are very passionate about connecting foster children and families because we believe every child deserves a healthy, safe and loving family. If you are interested in learning more about our ministry or specifically about fostering please email Katy McCrudden at (grace2love6@gmail.com)

Foster Care Awareness Night

Sunday, May 2 @ 5:00 pm

Psalm 68:6 tells us that God sets the lonely in families; James 1:27 commands followers of Christ to CARE for orphans and widows in their affliction. This affliction is loneliness, lack of family relationship and a place to call home. More than 650 children in the Columbia SC area are in foster care and need a family. Come learn about FBC1:27- the orphan care ministry at FBC, to see how YOU can answer God’s command to care for them. Childcare will be provided. This event will take place in Ellis Hall. Please RSVP by April 25 by using the button below, and if you have any questions please email Katy McCrudden (grace2love6@gmail.com)
