Missions Ministry Clothing Giveaway Program
The Clothing Giveaway Program is an outreach effort of Southern Friendship Missionary Baptist Church’s Missions Ministry. The Program offers a “store-like” setting where clean, slightly used and new women’s, men’s and children’s garments and accessories are given away, at no cost, to anyone “in need”. “Need” is defined as anyone who cannot afford to purchase clothing or finds it a financial strain to clothe his/her family. This can be a temporary need during a period of unemployment or budget strain (due to the winter heating costs, unexpected bills or higher medical expenses). In crisis situations, such as loss by fire or flood, or in the case of an abusive situation, the services of the Program can be made immediately available to those in need. Low and fixed income families may also be served by the Program. The Clothing Giveaway Program is available to everyone — in our Church and in the surrounding communities.

Four Corners International Mission, Inc.
President of the Board of Directors, Rev. Dr. Welton Fields, Jr.
Four Corners International Mission, Inc. (FCIM) is a non-profit, faith-based organization. The vision for FCIM was established in 2001 after Pastor Charles Cato conducted his first missionary trip to Guyana and saw the great need for shelter, clothing, medical care, and salvation. Pastor Cato started with “godparent ministries” and clothing drives, and eventually incorporated FCIM. FCIM conducts missionary work in the United States, Africa, South America and Europe, affecting the lives of thousands of people in need.

Soles Saving Souls Shoe Drive
Soles Saving Souls is a shoe drive for FCIM sponsored by Southern Friendship Missionary Baptist Church. Southern Friendship Missionary Baptist Church housed over eighty thousand pairs of donated shoes for FCIM’s shoe drive for The Shoeman’s Water Project. SFMBC continues to collect shoes for Soles Saving Souls and has worked shoes drives at the Baysox games. Our first priority is to get shoes to the "shoeman" because he turns shoe donations into fresh drinking water. The second priority is to get shoes on the feet of the villagers because bare feet expose people to disease.
