FBEA supports a number of local, national, and international mission projects.
FISH of East Aurora is a food pantry for families in the south towns. We collect non-perishable food monthly for FISH. We have a Souper Bowl Sunday collection in conjunction with Super Bowl Sunday. We provide school supplies and Christmas gifts for clients of FISH. Several members of the congregation volunteer at the food pantry.
Locally we give monetary support to Cradle Beach, Hearts and Hands, Friends of the Night People, Jericho Road, Salvation Army, and the Community Mission of the Niagara Frontier and FISH. We support the Fairport Baptist Home and Cameron Community Mission which are organizations partially funded through the ABC of New York State.
We support annual offerings of the American Baptist Church USA: America for Christ, One Great Hour of Sharing, and World Mission Offering.
We sponsor a special mission event each year to raise awareness and funds for various causes. These events include education, a themed meal, games, and fellowship.
