Food Pantry needs...click here for more details.
Community Outreach Ministry Eastside (COME) began in 1988 as an outgrowth of the food pantry at Cumberland First Baptist Church. Today ten area churches are united to sustain this local outreach ministry, reaching out to the financial needs within our community.
COME is designed to assist with utility bills, rent and mortgage payments, referrals to other agencies and of course, food. The ministry acts as a referral agency, working in tandem with area township trustees, to get clients headed in other directions where they might receive assistance that COME is unable to provide. Average total assistance is in excess of $40,000.00 annually.

Each fall we participate in the Greater Indianapolis CROP Walk to help end hunger one step at a time.
Please join us at noon on Sunday, October 19, 2014.
We incorporate our 11 circuit Chartres Labyrinth, located on the southeast grounds of the church property, into programs throughout the year. The labyrinth is open anytime for contemplative purposes. Walk the labyrinth, follow the winding path into the center and let go of burdens and concerns.
EASTSIDE PEACE & JUSTICE FORUM
Our Mission: To inform and promote awareness of issues that affect the common good and to present opportunities for involvement in causes that encourage peace and justice in our community and around the world.
The ESPJF affirms that it is the role of every follower of Christ to be a peacemaker. More information on the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America.
The ESPJF seeks out people of other faith communities to partner with on hunger, poverty and environmental issues. We support the Interfaith Hunger Initiative and have paartnered with the Indiana Buddhist Center to host One A-Maiz-ing Dinner. We have sponsored worship service exchanges with the Sikh Satsang.
The ESPJF believes that discrimination is a violation of our faith. More information on the Interfaith Coalition on Nondiscrimination.

The Weekday Preschool has been a non-profit ministry of Cumberland First Baptist Church since 1977. The preschool is under the direction of a Preschool Committee dedicated to providing a quality learning opportunity for preschool age children. The staff strives to provide a warm, positive introduction to each child's education journey, making learning a fun and desirable experience. Students are given the opportunity to grow in the areas of academic, spiritual, emotional, mental, physical and social development. Helping children to feel good about themselves, others and the world around them is a primary goal. Denominational doctrine is not stressed, but values, character and faith through Christian living are taught and exemplified by a committed and qualified staff.
