The FOOD PANTRY is an entity within the Providence Baptist Church that maintains a supply of non-perishable food to aid those in the community that may fall into hard times. The Pantry is supported by donations on food from the church family and the community. Donations are accepted anytime, but every 5th Sunday is a time when the receipt of donations is a focal point.

The next 5th Sunday is on October 30 . There will be baskets in the foyer and the library in which to put any donations.

2018: April 29; July 29; September 30; and December 30

OPERATION CHRoccISTMAS CHILD is an annual event sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse. Many churches around the country take place in this by gathering shoeboxes and filling them with items from toothbrushes to t-shirts to toys for children all over the world. Providence Baptist Church normally focuses on OCC in late October and early November annually. Shoeboxes can be filled individually, by group or by simply donating items to go into the boxes and are strictly volunteer.

It is held on the Saturday before the third Sunday of each month at Mt. Zion
from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm. It is a program that provides food boxes for those

distribution of the boxes each month.

The WMU of Providence was first organized in 1916 by Miss Ellie Marshall, who also was our first president.

The Woman’s Missionary Union or Women on Missions here at Providence has eleven members. Our mission is to inform and inspire Christians to influence their world for Christ.

Each member receives a monthly magazine called Missions Mosaic, which we study together and have prayer for missionaries on their birthday for that month.

The money given through the cooperative program, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions, and the Annie Armstrong Easter offering for North American Mission helps support Southern Baptist missionaries.

The WMU at Providence meets at the church on the first Monday of the month at 1:00 pm.
