MISSIONS AND MINISTRIES
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20 (ESV)
Sponsored by the Golden Circle Sunday School Class, easy to use food items are donated by individuals to help combat hunger experienced by area school children. The foods are packed into backpacks that can be handed off to them by a school teacher, giving them both snacks and even easy meals when needed. A sign-up sheet for regular donations during the school year is on the bulletin board in the hall of the main church building.
Pregnancy Resource Center
For over three decades, the Pregnancy Resource Center of Shelby has provided resources to aid in choosing alternatives to abortion for women who are facing a pregnancy that was perhaps unexpected or presents a financial hardship. They can help the mother and her family in many ways, from free pregnancy tests, volunteer counseling, education, and referrals for adoption, medical assistance, housing and various services offered through community resources.
Area churches, including David Baptist, are a great part of the ministry provided here. Donations are collected through special projects at times throughout the year to help offset the costs involved. These projects may include donations collected through Baby Bottle Blessings or a Pregnancy Resource Center Baby Shower. Many of our church members have also participated in the Walk for Life Fundraiser. More information can be found at the link above.
Our church has been actively involved in several mission trips and is currently planning more for the near future. Some have involved home missions, often going to help those who have been affected by hurricanes or other natural disasters. Other missions opportunities may involve trips overseas. More information will be posted here on upcoming Mission Trips as it comes available. For more information, please contact the church office for referral to join in ministry.
Adult Music Program
All throughout the year, the Music Program provides the backdrop and sets the tone for worship. David Baptist has a blended music service, meaning we use both contemporary and traditional Christian music to enhance our worship experience. If you enjoy singing, we hope you will consider joining the Adult Choir as we sing praise to our Savior. Choir Practice is held each Wednesday night at 8:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary, following the Prayer Meeting.
For two weekends in December, the area across the road from David Baptist Church will come alive with the sights and sounds of Bethlehem to remember the story of God's wonderful Gift to us, a Savior, Jesus Christ. This is a ministry to our community to share God's message of love and hope through the gospel message. Admission is free. Refreshments will also be served.
Structures and props will help recreate the journey of Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem. Volunteers are needed to assist in the building and creation of the village. Church members of all ages are needed to do a simplified, but meaningful dramatization of townspeople and villagers. A few people are needed to greet visitors and help with refreshments.
To volunteer to help with this project in any way, please contact our Youth Minister, Rev. Robert Craig.
