Safety and Security

All of our children’s workers must pass background checks and are committed to the safety and security of your children.  Care is taken for proper supervision in each class room and emergency help is always very close. We want to know about all allergies and special medical needs.

Children must be signed in and out by parents.  All outside doors are locked after the Sunday morning worship service begins and we have individuals posted in all areas for added security.

MISSIONS

The North Roanoke Baptist Association (NRBA) is a group of 64 Southern Baptist churches working in Edgecombe, Halifax, Nash, and Northhampton counties in North Carolina.  The association is affiliated with the Baptist State Convention of NC, the Southern Baptist Convention, the International Mission Board (IMB), and North American Mission Board (NAMB). LINK

Vermont is the “least religious” state in the United States.  Green Mountain Baptists are “Partnering together in stewardship development and leadership training resulting in church strengthening and mobilization for new ministries and church starts.” LINK

IMB’s (International Mission Board) mission is to make disciples of all peoples in fulfillment of the Great Commission found in Matthew 29:18-20.  Over 6,000 people groups – 1.7 billion people – still live with little or no access to the Gospel. LINK

NAMB (North American Mission Board) is engaged with reaching unbelievers, planting churches, and strengthening existing churches in North America.  NAMB currently has over 5000 missionaries with thousands more participating in short term mission projects.  LINK

The Baptist State Convention of NC provides administrative, church planting, missions development, congregational health, and evangelism support to SBC churches in NC.  The convention includes agencies for theological training and children’s services, etc. LINK

Water for the Oppressed provides clean water to the people of Zambia, Africa through the construction of new water wells and the repair of broken hand pumps. Their mission is “Making disciples and demonstrating God’s love to the oppressed, by bringing physical through clean water and spiritual life by proclaiming the “Living Water” of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.” LINK
