Sharing the Hope of Jesus

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19

At Summerville Baptist Church we believe in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ by serving our community, our nation and our world, so that all may see, hear, and experience God's love in tangible ways. We have many ways to get involved to show people how much they are loved.

Local Missions

Community "Work of Heart" Missions shares the love of Christ while helping with various projects (new roof, wheelchair ramp, etc) for those in our community who need assistance. Both skilled and  non-skilled laborers as well as support people who can help the working crew and build relationships with the home owners are always needed.

World Friends “English as a Second Language” We welcome people from Europe, Central and South America who want to learn basic, intermediate or advance English, make new friends, and learn of the love of Christ.

Please tell your international friends about this opportunity. You are welcome to help as well.

Good News Club for Elementary Aged Children: Trained teachers meet after school children at their school with their parent’s permission. Each week an exciting Bible lesson is taught using colorful materials from CEF Press. This action-packed time also includes songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.

Prison Ministries: We share the Gospel with inmates at Leiber and MacDougall prisons weekly. At Leiber, we teach Sunday mornings. We conduct service and take personal items to new inmates at MacDougall every other Sunday afternoon. Volunteers are needed and some training is required.

Everyone is invited to help with events like the Christmas Toy Store.

North American Missions

Disaster Relief Team: Southern Baptist Disaster Relief (SBDR) is Christian love in action. This ministry meets the urgent needs of hurting humanity in crisis situations. Christ calls for believers to demonstrate His love to those affected by disasters through our use of resources, talents and time. We provide many different types of relief, including food, water, child care, laundry, repairs, rebuilding and more.

Life Church Baltimore: SBC has partnered with this group of believers to pray as they worship, serve and reach out to their community, and to travel up to serve as needed.

For more information, see the website:

Special Offerings: SBC joins with other Southern Baptists during the spring months to fund a special offering to the North American Mission Board. Through this fund we send out chaplains, social ministry personnel, church planters and a host of others who are reaching our nation for Christ.

International Missions

Lottie Moon: As a church we are concerned about the people near us as well as the people around the world. SBC joins with thousands of other churches to pray, give and go through our International Mission Board, the largest mission agency in the world.
