MISSIONS

The congregation of Glenstone Baptist Church is challenged to support missions through an ongoing system of programs and promotions.

We maintain regular programs of study about missions which are age-graded.  Some of these are conducted on a weekly basis and some are monthly.  These are open to all.

Woman's Missionary  Union is the name for the umbrella organization for women and girls in missions education and support.  It includes Women on Mission, Acteens, Girls in Action and Mission Friends.  It also now includes Royal Ambassadors.  Women On Mission, the adult part of Woman's Missionary Union, is an organization which serves as a channel of missions education.  Its goal is not only to educate, but to do, to pray for, and give to missions.

Brotherhood is a Missions program devoted to the men of the church, operating under the name of Baptist Men.  The goal of this organization is one of fellowship, spiritual growth, and family ministry outreach.

In addition, the church supports the work of Grand Oak Baptist Mission Center which ministers to the needy of Greene County through food and clothing and other items provided by our local churches.

Our church contributes a substantial percentage of its income to worldwide causes through the support of the Cooperative Program of Southern Baptists.  In this way, we share in mission work done in our own county, the State of Missouri, and around the world.  This includes the work of the North American Mission Board and the International Mission Board.

We also receive special offerings at designated times for various causes, including the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering for North American missions, the Rheubin L. South Missouri Missions Offering, and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering for International Missions.

Another item of ministry in which we are involved is in providing meals for some of the needy children at Bingham School.  These children would not have food for the weekend without our help with this.

FILIPINO-AMERICAN CHRISTIAN FELLOWSHIP

In 2005 a study was made concerning the number of Filipino-Americans living in the Springfield area with the result that a plan was made to begin a work here.  Home Bible Studies were begun and Glenstone Baptist Church became the sponsor of this work.  In July of 2006, Rev. Ednor Sebag came from the Philippines to be pator of this congregation.  They currently meet in the facilities of Glenstone Baptist each Sunday afternoon.  Every fifth Sunday the Glenstone and Filipino congregations join together ina worship service or fellowship activity.
