YOUTH FOR TRUTH
Our teen youth group, Youth for Truth, is led by Jeremy Yost and many helpers who are members of the church. Growth, spiritually and socially, is emphasized in every activity to build charactered adults with a solid Biblical foundation and surrender to God’s will in their lives. Healthy relationships and interactive social skills are taught and lived as examples by the leaders and workers. Fun activities and group trips along with Bible study and prayer make for a well-rounded program. Truth for Youth curriculum is presented in the teen Sunday School and Wednesday Bible Lessons.
FAITH PROMISE MISSION PROGRAM
Our church is a mission-minded church. Fulfilling the Great Commission locally is important to us, but in cases where we cannot be in every place ourselves, we prayerfully consider support for families who are called and commissioned to go to the “uttermost parts of the world” in our place. We pray for our missionaries, support them financially and welcome them into our fold when they have opportunity to be “home” with us.
An Annual Mission Conference, planned by MARC (Missionary Assessment and Review Committee), is held each fall, and Mission Emphasis Sunday in the spring. Various missionary families are welcome to present their ministry throughout the year for consideration of regular support. Trusting God to provide us with a designated gift we promise God by faith to use us to support worthy missionaries around the world.
We are privileged to have around 40 supported families currently making our Faith Promise Mission Program one of the major outreaches of Faith Baptist.
We utilize a passenger van to pick up children and adults who cannot come to church on their own in our surrounding towns and rural areas. Reaching the unchurched is important in the church’s mission.
LACE LADIES FELLOWSHIP
Ladies After Christ’s Example is a women’s ministry that is geared to provide fellowship and Bible study to women and girls in our congregation. LACE meets monthly, except for January, February, July and August, with a variety of activities and opportunities for spiritual enrichment. The Women of Faith prayer group meets twice monthly.
“Be inspired and inspire” is our mantra with Colossians 1:18b as our guide as we strive to, “…in all things He (Christ) might have the preeminence.” One of our purposes is women mentoring young women by setting the example as a daughter of the King of Kings. As with all our various ministries within our church, LACE endeavors to reach out to those lost and without hope to give them hope and peace in Christ. (Jeremiah 29:11)
