First Baptist Church Cantonment is committed to our community.  As a church, we have made a commitment to the students, parents, and staff at Jim Allen Elementary School. Our desire is to build relationships and to encourage and pray for the students, parents, teachers, and administrators at Jim Allen. In addition, at various times we treat the teachers with coffee and donuts and lunch.

Jim Allen Elementary School “Backpack Ministry”

The “Backpack Ministry” is our opportunity to make a difference in the lives of local children. Through the “Backpack Ministry,” we are able to provide food to children who may go hungry over the weekend for a variety of reasons. Each week, we fill backpacks with enough food to feed a child through the weekend. These backpacks are then distributed to deserving children who attend the Jim Allen Elementary School. Our prayer is that through this ministry, we would be able to share the Gospel with the children and their families. Although we desire to help with physical needs, we more importantly want to help meet spiritual needs. If you would like to be involved in the ministry, the cost is just $10.00 a week to supply a child with a backpack. Contact the church office at
