Spiritual-- The Spiritual Ministry attends to the spiritual needs of the congregation. This includes working with the minister to have meaningful worship services, meeting with candidates for membership, lining up scripture readers, and assisting members in crisis.
Discipleship -- The Discipleship Ministry encompasses education and social activities. Sunday School classes, Bible studies, and Book Club are organized to continue the faith journey of members.
Outreach -- The Outreach Ministry develops and build relationships with local organizations to understand community dynamics and how the church can meet their needs. We create and review local and global partnership opportunities annually. The Outreach Ministry focuses on reaching out to congregation members, the community, our denomination, our nation, and our world in the areas of (a) Local Mission; (b) Denominational Mission; (c) Hospitality; and (d) Visitation. Mission (Local) The Outreach Ministry team identifies local needs for support and communication, offers opportunities and their time in Local Mission support. Mission (Denominational) The Outreach Ministry also identifies denominational opportunities that engage in missions at the region, national, and international levels. The Outreach Ministry also offers opportunities that engage with The American Baptist Churches of Massachusetts and their sponsored organizations. Hospitality The Outreach Ministry also creates and maintains an environment that first-time guests feel the community of faith through the family relationships over a period of time. Hospitality is the welcoming of people both within and outside the congregation. Visitation The Outreach Ministry regularly contacts the sick and shut-ins, the inactive and prospective new members. Visits include home communion to the homebound monthly and to care for the needy and distressed members of the congregation.
Administration -- The Administration Ministry cares for the property and equipment of the church. It also includes overseeing the staff administrative functions in coordination with the minister. Outside groups who ask to use the building for meetings are reviewed by this team.
