Warrenton Baptist Church
State, National, and International Missions
The Warrenton Baptist Church is dually aligned with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship. That means that we cooperate with both networks of Baptist churches in sharing the gospel and meeting the needs of others, both at home and abroad.
The Brotherhood meet every second Sunday in the Fellowship Hall for breakfast. Church and local needs are discussed and various services in the community are provided. Each November a "Mile of Pennies" fund raiser provides support for the Baptist Children's Home. In December, food items contributed by the membership are delivered by the men of the church to 5 or more families that have been identified as being in need.
The Annie Armstrong Easter Offering of the North American Mission Board honors the life and work of Annie Walker Armstrong, who served tirelessly as an advocate and supporter for missions efforts throughout the world. The offering is directed toward transforming lives by spreading the gospel across North America.
The Mother’s Day Offering began in 1924 as a benevolent ministry of North Carolina Baptists to help patients in serious financial need at North Carolina Baptist Hospital to
pay their hospital bills in the name of Jesus Christ.
The North Carolina Baptist Missions Offering is a special offering received in September to support ministries of North Carolina Baptist Men, Church Planting, Mission Camps, Associational Projects, and Mobilization Ministry Projects.
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering supports the ministries of the International Mission Board. It helps send and support missionaries and enables them to go and invite disciples and multiply churches among unreached peoples and places for the glory of God.
The Cooperative Baptist Fellowship Offering for Global Missions provides support to about 125 field personnel who minister in more than 30 countries on five continents. These commissioned ministers stand with and among the poorest of the poor in locations across the United States and around the world.
The Missions and Ministry Committee meets regularly and engages the congregation in opportunities for service as they become aware of needs.
Through contact with Warren County Schools, Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry, and the Warren County Department of Social Services, the church responds to the needs of families in the community.
The Warrenton Baptist Church participates in providing a Community Meal in partnership with other local churches. There is no cost to those who receive the meals and 50-80 meals are usually served, many of them are delivered to shut-ins.
Every year since 2018, the church has funded seminary scholarships for students preparing for careers in full-time Christian service. The 2022 student scholarships were awarded to two second-year students at the Campbell University Divinity School in honor of our former pastor, Rev. Mack L. Thompson.
