The Women's Ministry of Berkeley Baptist Church consists of the ladies of our church doing all sorts of wonderful activities. From special events for ladies to just hang with ladies, to our Women's Missionary Union and their work with Operation Christmas Child to actually going to missions trips to South Carolina (Grace Home) and McDowell County to brighten someone's Christmas, our ladies ministry is a wonderful opportunity for any women to grow in their relationship with Christ, explore ways of service and missions, all while finding the tremendous support that comes from being part of a fellowship of sisters in Christ. All one needs to do to get involved is come one Sunday and ask to speak with Karen Burcham, our Women's Ministry Director.
Not just men being men...but men being the men God calls us to be. The Men's Ministry of Berkeley Baptist Church is very service orientated. While they know how to have fun (attending Beasts Feasts and Promise Keepers events), they primarily love to come together and put their skills to work for the Kingdom of Christ. Whether it is uplifting someone in the community through some yard work or helping fellow Christians at The Grove in Scranton, PA by helping to upgrade their church to more modern times, the Men's Ministry of BBC is focused on training men to serve the Lord. Some upcoming activities include more missions opportunities as well as a Concealed Carry class. For more information, speak with Marvin Burcham, our Men's Ministry Director.
The Youth Ministry at Berkeley Baptist Church is led by David Byrne and Pastor Joey. We are currently planning our 2017 activities.
There are a variety of Children's Ministries that are provided by Berkeley Baptist Church. Outside of our Sunday School classes, we offer Nursery and Children's Church during our morning service. We are also resurrecting an old ministry with new life, Puppets. Our Youth and Young Adults are practicing now to present brief skits during the Little Friends (Children's Sermon) portion of the worship service.
BBC Food Pantry
Berkeley Baptist Church, through cooperation with Mountaineer Food Bank, operates a Food Pantry for financially challenged families. Whether you live alone or in a household of 10, if you meet a predetermined financial burden, you are eligible to receive food. We receive a shipment on the first Thursday of every month. On the following Tuesday, we distribute. On distribution day, we begin at 10:30 with a 30 minute Bible Study. While the Bible Study is not mandatory, it is our practice to permit those who attend the Bible Study to be the first to receive the food distribution.
Berkeley Baptist Church has two 15 passenger vans used for its various ministries. If you would like to join us for a worship service or special activity but do not have the means to get to our location, please contact the church office and we can arrange for a van to pick you up.
