Florida Baptist Children’s Home Diaper Drive



Can you imagine going through 30,000 diapers a month?
That’s how many diapers are needed for the domestic and international childcare needs of the Florida Baptist Children’s Homes. Our goal is to be able to help defray significant childcare costs for our foster parents and for the Children’s Malnutrition Center in Guatemala by providing them with a large quantity of disposable diapers for use throughout the year.

For this reason we are collecting diapers during the days leading up to Orphan Sunday, which is designed to raise awareness of the plight of orphaned and disadvantaged children around the world. The campaign runs from Tuesday, September 24, 2013 and concludes on Orphan Sunday, November 3, 2013.

Antioch is participating in this diaper drive and needs your help!  Our goal is 1,000 diapers to be collected.  There is a box in the foyer to receive diapers.  Thank you for your support!

My Hope with Billy Graham

My Hope America with Billy Graham is a nationwide effort to reach people across the United States with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Following a simple biblical model, My Hope America with Billy Graham combines the impact of video programs with the power of personal relationships. Christians across America will open their homes this November to share the Gospel message with friends, family, colleagues, and neighbors using one of several new evangelistic programs featuring life-changing testimonies & powerful messages from Billy Graham.

Become a Matthew

The Apostle Matthew invited people into his home to meet Jesus (Matthew 9:9–10). Now you can join concerned Christians across America who will also invite friends and family into their homes, or another gathering place, so that they can hear the life-changing message of the Gospel. Many are nervous about sharing their faith. However, as we have done this outreach around the globe, people like you have shared howMy Hope made it simple for them and they have been able to help impact lives in a way they never thought possible. Sign up to get all the training you need to:
  • Look around and identify your friends, neighbors, co-workers, fellow students, and family who do not know Jesus Christ as their Savior.
  • Look forward to preparing your home and inviting every person on your list to view a program in your home or other comfortable place.
  • Look up and pray every day for each person you have listed.
  • Look after those who give their lives to Jesus Christ and help them grow in their faith.
  • Look out for opportunities to build your relationship with these people.
  • Antioch will be participating in this outreach.  If you would be interested in opening your home, please see Bro. Dave.

Life In Christ

God tells us in the Bible that being a Christian is about living IN Christ and in relationship with others. Much of scripture including four of the Ten Commandments,
 This diagram shows the order of priority in scripture for these relationships and that for Christians, Christ is at the center of all of them tells us how we are to live in relationship with Him and the other six with others.
