Providence Baptist Church
From its beginning in 1888, the main purpose of WMU has been to educate and involve women in the cause of Christian Missions. As a missions ministry within a congregation, WMU encourages and provides opportunities for all church members and other participants to be aware and involved in missions.
Mission Mbale exists to share the hope that is found in Jesus Christ with the children and families who live in the Namatala Slum in Mbale, Uganda. We do this while helping to meet their "life" needs of food, housing, pure water, medical care, education, etc.
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord... plans to give to you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11
Welcome to the Backpack Ministry where the love of Jesus is delivered through backpacks and school supplies to children in need. Trusting in God's faithfulness allowed Providence Baptist Church to donate backpacks to over 150 children in Townsend, TN. Each "pack" is prepared for God's Glory with love and prayer, with the hope that this simple act of kindness will demonstrate the love of Jesus to the families we are called to serve.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, many families in our community are struggling to find reliable means of feeding their families. Since March, our church has provided over 3,772 individual meals, 350 boxes of food and 200 sacks of food to families in our community. We have been able to continue this ministry with the generous donations by our members and the partnership with One Roof.
Starting in 1888, the Lottie Moon Christmas offering was established to empower the international mission efforts for Southern Baptists. After more than a century the annual offering continues its steady growth. Every dollar given to the Lottie Moon offering helps enable a missionary to stay on the mission field, to lift disciples among unreached peoples for the glory of God!
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering changes lives forever by empowering North American missionaries to bring the gospel to the lost. North Americans and its major cities are some of the most spiritually dark places in the world. 3 out of 4 people in the United States are lost and do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
We received over $1,112 for feeding Uganda. Thank you for your generosity. We are going to use $350 of this to help 5 churches return to in person worship!
We are collecting the following items this month for the backpacks; first aid items, flashlights, tool kits, sewing kits, and small kleenex. We have placed a tub in the foyer for donation.
