Community Impact Celebration
April 16-18, 2021
Decatur Baptist Church will have a Community Impact Celebration (CIC) in the spring of each year, beginning this year. This is a time of celebration for what God has done in the city of Decatur over the past year and a celebration in expectation of what God is going to do in the coming year. It is a time of partnering with and coming alongside local non-profits and loving, encouraging, and serving them in whatever capacity. We are so excited to see what God is going to do!
Showing our love for God and God’s Word through giving of our time and resources, each person/family is challenged to seek God’s direction concerning their part of this corporate project. While the project varies from year to year, the goal of reaching the lost, the unreached and the least reached by proclaiming the gospel throughout Decatur and Morgan County remains the number-one criteria in selection of each year‘s project.
