FBC Jacksboro continues Wednesday night meal tradition

First Baptist Church Jacksboro has been offering a Wednesday meal for its youth for many years during its youth group, bringing about 120 children together for TeamKid, choir and youth meetings. 

With the COVID-19 pandemic putting the meetings temporarily on hold, FBC staff members got together and worked on a plan where they could keep the youth together and expand on that.

“To which much is given, much is required,” FBC Pastor Jack Maddox said.

Music Minister Therrol DuBois and his team opted to expand the meal program not only to the whole church, but to the area. DuBois was in the kitchen early in the afternoon  Wednesday getting everything set up for four massive dutch ovens full of food.

“Our meals, along with what they get from the school, may be some of the best meals they get all week,” Maddox explained. “It’s never anything complicated.”
