Our Ministries

Outreach

Athol Baptist is committed to fulfilling the Great Commission,
through sharing the Gospel to our community and abroad.

Outreach is not just something we do, it is something we are.

Athol Daze is a community event where we provide entertainment and snacks free to our community in the name of Jesus. We pray and share the Gospel of Christ and God is using this outreach to bring people to Himself.

Adopt-A-School is a program that provides volunteer support to our local elementary school.   We strive to come alongside the teachers, students and their families with practical help and resources. This includes staffing classroom volunteers, providing snacks and assisting with inventory oversight and re-stocking the school’s clothing closet.

 

Athol Beautification Day is a community-wide outreach. Each year, church  and community volunteers help residents with home and yard clean-up projects, followed with a community lunch fellowship.

S.W.A.T.  Servants With Assorted Talents is a group of people that get together to help in the church and community with various needs. Those needs range from cutting firewood to auto repair. If there is a need we will find a talent to fill it. These are people with a desire to serve others and fulfill the J.O.Y. principle: Jesus First, Others Second, Yourself Last.

The Share Tree is when Athol Food Bank reaches out to families in need around Christmas time by providing a tree decorated with names of those in need and others can pick a name to help. Athol Baptist Church has been able to bring the joy of receiving to several families and the joy of giving to our church family.

God wants to empower you to share His Gospel. Please pray about how you can share in this endeavor and contact us.

Galatians 5:13-14

For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”

Men's Ministry

Our purpose is to help men become disciples who will create disciples. 
To help men take an active role in their home church and community.

 

Our Brotherhood Breakfast is a time when we enjoy the fellowship of our brothers while feasting on a delicious breakfast. We invite various speakers to challenge us in our Christian walk. Brotherhood Breakfast is on the first Saturday of each month at 8:00am at Athol Baptist Church.

 

Our other events throughout the year are geared toward fellowship and serving our community.

Titus 2:1

But as for you, teach what accords with sound doctrine.

Children & Youth Ministry

Athol Baptist Kids Ages 5 to 6th grade

Athol Baptist believes that children are not the church of the future, but they are the church of today. 

Our goal is to educate children in all the major Bible stories of the Bible, also to make sure they understand who Christ is and what He did for them.  We also place a large emphasis on the child’s place in the home and what God expects of them in their family. 

Our goal is that every child has a firm foundation of the scriptures before leaving the children’s ministry.

The Safety of your children is of the utmost importance to our church.

  • Check-in and Check-out procedures.

  • Every volunteer is background checked and has received Child Supervision training.
