The Freeda Harris Baptist Center is a service ministry center located in the Appalachian region of Pike County in Eastern Kentucky. The center partners with local churches and ministries in various communities to provide assistance and outreach events. The center has added a “mobile ministry unit” to its outreach opportunities and will be utilizing it to conduct VBS and BYBC’s throughout their service area. There are numerous opportunities for teams to serve on multiple projects for a “customized missions experience.” The center has undergone a change in leadership for the first time in over thirty years so there are new service opportunities being offered.
They host an annual “Christmas on the Creek” event where families register and pick up gifts for children throughout the local community and county. The plan for 2021 includes a meal at the Freeda Harris Baptist Center facility and a Christmas “program” to minister to those in attendance.
