Reach Week is an annual week-long ministry event at First Baptist Church Gadsden. FBCG believes that outreach and evangelism is a crucial ministry that should be practiced all year round. However, during Reach Week the church as a whole mobilizes in order to focus their outreach efforts. The goal of Reach Week is to show our church’s love for our community in creative and impactful ways and to let everyone in Gadsden know they are welcome at First Baptist Church. We would love for you to partner with us during this exciting week of ministry and outreach!

We would love to see your creative ideas on how you are reaching your community! Please tag @fbcgadsden on any Instagram or Facebook posts and utilize the hashtag #ReachWeek23. Below are some ideas for outreach, some which have been done in the past with great success.
