Care & Support

Providing care and support programs for those struggling in a difficult season of life

No matter what you’re facing, we are here to help.

The local church is a critical partner in supporting those in our community who are dealing with difficult circumstances. If you need assistance, First Baptist Woodstock has a variety of ministries to help those who are struggling.

You can find out more by calling 678.494.2692.


Our CARE Ministry helps meet a variety of needs within our community through our food pantry, thrift store and financial counseling.

If you or someone you know needs assistance, we ask that you first bring your need to your Sunday Morning Group or Recovery Group. We pursue and live out gospel-centered community through groups and hope that you reach out to your closest community in times of hardship.

If you still need assistance, call us for further guidance and information about how the CARE Ministry can help.
