Western Avenue Baptist Church believes in serving others through mission projects locally and abroad.
As a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, Western Avenue supports the Cooperative Program.
The Cooperative Program is an agreement among Southern Baptists churches, Baptist state conventions and fellowships, and the Southern Baptist Convention to work together in Great Commission ministries.
It is a financial channel of cooperation through which mission dollars are combined into a unified budget supporting the Southern Baptist missionary, education, and benevolent ministries in each state, the nation, and throughout the world.
The Cooperative Program makes it possible for individuals and churches to do something about fulfilling the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20) across the street and around the world.
Through the Cooperative Program, the mission of a single church is extended to ministries for the needy, the sick, the aged, and the lost, as well as the support of about 11,000 North American and international missionaries.
Each Southern Baptist church chooses what percentage of its undesignated offerings will be shared through the Cooperative Program.
We intend to continue our work with the Salvation Army by serving at The Lord's Table on each 3rd Friday of the month through 2019. We also serve our community children with our Happy Birthday Jesus Celebration in December.
Sponsored missionaries to Peru, Mike and Tammy Riggs have visited with us for our Sunday morning service
In December cards are made for delivery to the residents of Majestic Nursing Home. The delivery and visitation is followed by the singing of Christmas Carols with the residents at Majestic.
