Ministry at Mount Vernon Baptist Church
The Women's Missionary Union (WMU)
Meets the second Thursday monthly at 11:00 AM in fellowship hall.
The primary tasks of the WMU are to lead the church and WMU members to:
Pray for and give to missions
Learn about missions
Develop spirituality toward a mission lifestyle
Participate in the work of our church and the denomination
The annual weeks of prayer, and the Home and Foreign Mission Studies, focus on cooperative giving for individuals and families. The Cooperative Program, Lottie Moon Christmas offering for international missions, the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American Missions, and state and associational missions are the primary channels of giving emphasized by WMU.
WMU continues to respond to the church's mandate of the Great Commission through the use of time, talents, prayer, and financial resources to advance the Gospel both at home and throughout the world.
The Body of deacons
Meet on the first Sunday of each month following the evening worship service. The Deacons assist the pastor in the Ministry to the congregation and are available at all times to minister to those in need, much like the pastor in that regard.
The Men's Ministry
Meets the first Sunday of each quarter at 8:00 AM usually over breakfast. We support those in membership with aid when necessary and outside our church field whenever possible. We also support the "Suit Ministry" for pastors in the Western United States. We have a good time in the Lord! Come and join us.
