The story of the Fig Tree …
First mentioned in the Garden of Eden, the fig tree is an ancient tree rich with symbolic meaning. Its leaves provide shelter from the sun, its fruit offers continuous nourishment almost every month of the year, and its nutritional value is off the charts! God created the fig tree to bear fruit and provide life-giving support. In fact, a healthy fig tree became a sign of God’s blessing, both physically and spiritually.
It is our prayer that Fig Tree Café would stand as a symbol of God’s blessing over Jonesboro. A place where diverse people gather as one community, a place of shelter from the storms of life, a place to find strength among friends, and a place where physical and spiritual needs can be satisfied.
The Fig Tree Café is the fulfillment of a dream cast by First Baptist Jonesboro, a people wanting to enhance the community in which they live. So welcome to Fig Tree Café!
