Outreach

While works alone will not save us, no believer who has truly made Jesus Christ Lord of his or her life can be unmoved by the needs all around us.  As believers, we are called to give aid where it is needed and to help where it will save lives, families… and sometimes souls as well.


“…whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25)

MBC takes that exhortation seriously, committing itself and its people to a variety of outreach ministries to our community.  The list below describes some of them, but frankly, the list grows as needs become visible and MBC members step up to help meet them:

Mineral Baptist Church Archery (MBCA) is an outreach ministry made up of two programs:
First is a yearly eight week instructional program that teaches the life skills of archery while introducing the archer to a relationship with Jesus.  This program provides all equipment necessary for the instruction on an indoor archery range within the Family Life Center.  This program takes place during the summer months.The second program of MBCA is our 3D archery range located behind the Family Life Center Athletics Field.  The third Sunday of each month, year around, we put together a challenging 3D archery course for all avid archers.  Whether you are a beginner or an experienced shooter, this is the shoot for you.  Working on donations only, we offer a 12 lane shoot with 24 active shots for a fun full, family oriented, outdoor archery shoot.
