The main goal of the Board of Missions at Community Baptist Church is to promote church wide
interest in missions at the local, national and global levels.
On a local level, Community Baptist Church continues to work with the Manchester Area Conference
of Churches ("MACC") by supplying seasonal sharing baskets for Thanksgiving and Christmas,
collecting food for the food pantry, and volunteering at MACC. We also help out at the town shelter for
a week once every few months, providing meals and overnight staffing.
Community Baptist Church promotes four American Baptist Churches - USA special projects
throughout the year. These are:
- America for Christ
- One Great Hour of Sharing
- World Mission Offering
- Retired Ministers and Missionaries
On an international level, Community Baptist Church is working with La Iglesia Bautista El Buen Pastor
(the Good Shepherd Baptist Church) in Guananito and Sabana Piedra in the Dominican Republic to
build a church in their community.
Our team was honored to be a part of a baptismal service recently in the local river where seventeen new
Christians were baptized. Another memorable occasion for the team was being involved in the first
communion service ever held by the church. It was made even more special by having the service in the
still roof-less church building that they were helping to build!
Since then several other trips have taken place annually, and much work on the church building has been
carried out. We are very blessed by the close relationship we have with our sister church, and we thank
God for the many blessings we have both given and received.
We look forward to taking more trips to visit our friends in the Dominican Republic, and to further the work
of the Lord in that area. For more information, please feel free to contact the church office.
