Abilene Baptist Association Social Ministries began in 1989 as an outreach to families in need of food and clothing. ABASM is manned completely by volunteers who stock the food pantry, sort all clothing donations, and serve the families that come. Counselors also talk with each client to see what needs they have a learn about them, making them feel comfortable. Fropm the inception of the ministry the first objective was to visit with each client to see if he/she had a church and if each knew about Jesus. The goal is to at least plant a seed. Over 400 families are served each year and the number continues to grow. ABASM is supported totally by member churches in the association. Potosi Baptist Church ranks in the top five for giving each year.
If you are in need of assistance, or you know of someone in need you may call ABASM at (325) 672-4193 or come by 618 S. Pioneer Dr. in Abilene. ABASM is open Tuesday-Thursday from 1:00-3:00 pm.
