As Mission Baptist Church, we make it our goal to help people become like Jesus Christ in every way. In order to do that, it requires that everyone "give generously" of their time, talents, gifts, and treasures and that they "serve faithfully". While this can seem very daunting, we tried to make it simple and easy, by encouraging everyone in the church to do two things:
We believe that if everyone gives fifteen minutes of their time, both before and after the service, we can foster a welcoming and inviting atmosphere for our first-time guests, which in turn, will also lead to the development Christ-centered relationships in the church body.
As you connect at Mission Baptist, we want to encourage you to show up at least fifteen minutes early- whether its for Bible Study, the Worship Service, or some other event, to make yourself available to any immediate needs, or to simply make our guests feel welcome.
Additionally, we want to encourage you to stick around for at least fifteen minutes after the service, to get to know both the first time guests and the other members of the church, because we believe that relationships are one of the most influential tools that we have, as we strive to help one another become like Jesus Christ.
In addition to giving fifteen minutes, we want to encourage you, as you connect at Mission Baptist, to give 1 hour of your week to serving the body of Christ. At first, that may seem like a lot, but given that you can easily waste an hour watching Netflix or scrolling through Facebook, we realize it’s not that much.
If everyone gave one hour to serving the body of Christ, there is so much that we could do together, for the sake of the Kingdom of God.
You can invest your “one hour” throughout the week by helping around the facilities, doing administrative work, contacting & encouraging sick or quarantined members, hosting or leading a community group, or on a Sunday morning by teaching a class, greeting new guests, serving with the children or student ministries, singing or playing an instrument with the worship team or operating equipment with the production team.
"Serving at the church has made such a difference in my faith."
