Montana Partnership

First Baptist Church of Flora’s mission involvement in Northwest Montana began in 1999. We along with other churches in the Metro Baptist Association joined together in providing financial assistance and labor toward the building of the Kila Country Church. At the time, we didn’t have enough people to make up a team of our own nor did we have the resources to fund a project of this size and nature. However, through the vision and leadership of Metro Baptist Association and Larry Garner, we were able to send four on that first trip. Since that first trip we have returned every summer and a few times in the fall. In July of 2013, we sent our largest team totaling 34. Also, we have partnered with the Canyon Baptist Church in Hungry Horse, Montana and Kila Country Church just outside of Kalispell, Montana. Our partnership consists of a monthly financial gift, monthly emails and calls of encouragement, assistance with coats, gloves and shoes, providing Christmas for families and conducting a Sports Camp at Canyon Baptist Church and Kila County Church; as well as a assisting with Vacation Bible School at Kila.
