Carpenters for Christ

Growing men spiritually while helping to build area churches

Dedicated to Growing and Nurturing Godly Men

It is the stated  purpose of First Baptist Church of Palmetto to share the love of Christ with our community and beyond. As part of FBC Palmetto, Carpenters for Christ shares this purpose and actively seeks to fulfill it through local projects and yearly mission trips. Members donate their time assisting other Christians in building places to worship God and study His Word.

The primary focus of Carpenters for Christ, however, is building disciples through prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and service. The scope of our ministry is both outward looking (missions) and inward looking (discipleship).
