The mission activities described in the previous section have continued throughout the history of the church. The activities have become more local. In 1977, the congregation cooperated in starting a soup kitchen. In the last 10 years, the church started a food pantry which has been expanded into a community wide organization. Also, a daytime homeless drop-in center was started and has grown into a separate organization which is again housed at the church.

First Baptist Church of Morristown has a long history of community involvement which dates back to its beginning in 1752. We have been at our current location since 1892. First Baptist of Morristown continues to be a worshipping and active church. We have an active adult choir, a small but active Women's Society and various other programs throughout the year. We support the local Soup Kitchen, Food Pantry, and the Baptist Home in Newark. We provide space for "Our Place, Inc.", a drop-in center for the homeless. Church members travel anywhere from a few blocks to 30 miles to attend our church services and other activities. We are governed by a Diaconate which consist of the officers, committee chairpersons and members at large. We support the ABCUSA and ABCNJ and participate in association, state and national programs, whenever possible.
