MBC COMMITTES/MISSIONS (Also See Outreach Page)
All women of the church are invited to join the American Baptist Women's Ministries.
The J.O.Y. Circle meets the first Monday of each month at 1 pm in the church parlor.
The Betty Killian Circle meets the first Monday of each month at 6 pm in the church parlor.
What we do --
The Circles keep in contact with our American Baptist missionaries and remember them on their birthdays with a monetary gift. David and Leslie Turley,
from our church, are missionaries in Japan.
Milton Baptist Women's "Love Gift Offering" ranked 5th in the state in 2008.
Two of the Circle ladies visit our Golden Links each month and take them a gift.
We send monetary gifts to Weirton Christian Center and to our Baptist Camp at Cowen.
A White Cross quota is sent each year to our missionaries to assist them in their work as they bring Christ to the people they serve.
We also send money to the Huntington City Mission, Salvation Army, and ECCHO.
Our Special Project funds this year will help support the growing Hispanic population in our state.
Our Mission Outreach Project will aid women and girls who are trafficked into the U.S.
There are approximately 30 women in the two circles who provide opportunities for women to worship God, grow spiritually, develop spiritual gifts, care for
one another, and reach out to others. The ladies work hard, and have fun and fellowing at the meetings.
With His hands, Jesus touched, healed, comforted, taught, prayed, and bled. The same hands whose power restored sight to the blind in service to God's
love were nailed in agony to a cross where victory literally arose out of sacrifice and surrender.
In Christ we have both the model and the strength to "live for Him who died" for all. It is our surrender to the transforming and enabling power of Christ
-- and not by living for ourselves -- that allows us to serve God and God's creation sacrificially and willingly. And, it is with our hands that we become the
tools of Christ in a world full of need and opportunity.
Christ's work of transformation -- through sacrifice, service and surrender -- is our call to make disciples and encourage wholeness in God's precious gift
of life. Even in a world where agony and opposition challenge our every intention and action,we serve with joyful hearts . . .and with willing hands.
Through the annual America for Christ Offering -- and only because of it -- can National Ministries provide the sought-after resources utilized by mission-
minded American Baptists who are committed to serve, sacrifice, and surrender. Their generous support of American Baptist Churches and individuals
allows for the ongoing and life-transforming outreach.
The American Baptist Foreign Mission Society, (operating as International Ministries), organized in 1814 is the first Baptist international mission agency
formed in North America and the second oldest Baptist mission agency in the world. We serve more than 1,800 short-term and long-term missionaries
annually, bringing churches and individuals in the United States and Puerto Rico together with partners in more than 70 countries in holistic, cutting-edge
ministries that tell the Good News of Jesus Christ while meeting human need.
International Ministries is supported solely through the generosity of churches and individuals. Our primary fundraising vehicle is the World Mission
Offering, one of three special “over-and-above” mission outreach offerings we receive each year to support the work of ABC/USA both at home and
