Our Ministries

        We see the Kingdom of God as rooted in the words and works of Jesus. His love compels us to love all people, to bring hope and healing in His name, to seek justice and mercy, and to reflect His heart for the poor and broken-hearted. We are committed to making the Good News of the Kingdom tangible, understandable and accessible.

 

        For us, church is so much more than just a Sunday service, and you should know that there is a perfect place for you here. Our goal is to provide a place for you to discover who it is that God created you to be, and allow Him to use you to bring His love and healing to Williamsburg and beyond.

Deacon's Ministry

Acts 6:1-3 defines the character and role  of deacon. Deacons serve the Lord by conducting the caring ministry of the church, doing the benevolence work, visiting the sick, and being alert to the spiritual needs of the congregation. This work frees the pastor to focus on prayers and ministry of the Word, promoting unity within the church, and facilitating the spread of the Gospel. Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church has deacons and deaconesses to assist the pastor and serve the congregation.

Missionary Ministry

Everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is a Missionary. We invite you to join us not only in worship, but in training to serve, and going out to share Jesus Christ with others.

"Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28:19, KJV).

Missionary Work Blesses Everyone!

Marriage Ministry

The goal of the Marriage Ministry is to foster the success of marriages, help couples build stronger marriages and to prevent relationships from suffering within the church thus fostering a stronger church body. This ministry assists and informs married couples about being all they can be in Christ.

"And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh" (Genesis 2:23-24, KJV).

Usher Ministry

Ushering is a ministry to serve the Lord, not just passing out fans, bulletins and assisting with offering. Gods wants us to enjoy the way we serve Him and His people by becoming more like Him in the way we think and act. Ushers should be faithfully committed to attending Sunday school and Bible study. Anyone who has a heart to serve the Lord Jesus Christ and His people can be an usher. 

"Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you" (1 Samuel 12:24, KJV).

Hospitality Ministry

The Hospitality Ministry is responsible for all areas of ministry requiring use of the church kitchen (includes, setup, serve, and clean up). The members of this ministry prepare refreshments for church socials and keep track of all supplies necessary for such events.

 

Intercessory Prayer

"I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth" (Isaiah 62:6-7, KJV)

Intercessory Prayer meets each Sunday morning at 8:00 AM to pray on behalf of the church and others.

An intercessor is one who builds the wall (or hedge) of protection while fighting or pleading for justice to prevail on behalf of others exercising the authority given by Jesus in Matthew 16:19.

Trustees

The Trustees are responsible for the physical assets of the church, including property maintenance, property procurement, and monetary assets.
