The Concern Center is the benevolence arm of the churches of the Salt Lake Baptist Association. It is one way we show Christ’s love to those in need. This ministry is staffed and funded by the generosity of caring people who donate their time and financial resources.

They believe in sharing food and clothes with those in need and grasping that opportunity to help them know Christ and his love for them.

You can be a part of this ministry by donating financially, praying fervently, or volunteering faithfully. Click on a link and join in this wonderful ministry now.

How You Can Help

Local Volunteers

You can be a part of the Concern Center family. In fact, without you, we are not quite the family that we want to be. We are able to reach out to the community thanks to the service of individuals, families, civic organizations, churches, businesses, and schools. Please contact us if you or a group would like to help volunteer. If you are already a part of our mission family, then we hope this site helps you stay connected and informed as well, and we can't thank you enough for all you do!
