Operation In As Much


In the early fall of each year, one Saturday is designated for Operation In As Much. Members and Friends of Culbertson Baptist family devote a full day to community service activities.

 

In the past, we have helped Floyd County Youth Services, the Center for Women and Families, and Brandon’s House, as well as local families who are often referred by Hope Southern Indiana.

 

Painting, cleaning, weeding, trimming, and minor building projects are tackled by our hardworking congregation.

The Penny Project

This is a simple way that we support local agencies. We bring in our pennies, change, and dollars to support our local ministries. We collect them them in the containers in the Fellowship Hall and the entry table on the lower level. Past pennies have been donated to HOPE Southern Indiana, the Salvation Army, the Youth Shelter, the IUS Food Pantry, Centenary Christ Kitchen, and Center for Women and Families.
