Networks is a cooperative ministry made up of churches, individuals, and companies in the Northlake, Embry Hills, and Tucker area. The purpose of this ministry partnership is to assist individuals who have emergency financial and food needs while also helping address the underlying issues of poverty and dependence. The offices of Networks are located in the Tucker Community Center at First Baptist Church of Tucker, a former bank building located behind the church sanctuary complex. Church members volunteer, collect food items, and donate money to the ministry of Networks.
The NET Food Pantry, located in the Tucker Recreation Center, offers emergency food for families. First Baptist participates in the NET food pantry by collecting items for the pantry and by working as pantry volunteers one month during the year.
