Opportunities for Adults at Central Baptist Church

Authentic FamilyAt Central Baptist Church, adults of all ages will find numerous opportunities for service, fellowship, and spiritual growth.  From Senior Adult ministries, to Women’s and Men’s ministries, and many other opportunities besides, there is something for you at Central Baptist Church.  We offer these many opportunities in the hope that it might fulfill the calling that has been offered to us in 1 Thessalonians 5:11 – “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing.”

Senior Adult Ministry

The Senior Adult ministry of Central Baptist Church is led by Luci Stephens.  Throughout the year, the Senior Adults will be offered various opportunities for fellowship and spiritual growth. Highlights from last year include a senior adult trip to Branson, a mid-week course on the gospel of Mark taught by Pastor Wyman and CBC member Robert Pritchett, and a number of fellowship trips to various restaurants in and around the area.

Senior Adult Sunday School classes are also offered. Upcoming Senior Adult trips will be posted here and on the Events page.

Women’s Ministry

The Women’s Ministry of Central Baptist Church exists to exalt Christ and to spur spiritual growth and relationships among women by providing activities that are anchored in our church’s four canons. Check back often to see the latest events and opportunities! You can also access this page through the Central Baptist Church NLR app.

Women on Mission

Central Baptist Women on Mission is a group of missions-minded ladies who meet regularly to pray for missionaries and the cause of missions in the world. They meet on the second Tuesday of each month from 10:00-11:30 a.m., at which time they study together the Missions Mosaic Bible study and pray. They are involved in numerous missions projects including:

  • financially supporting Pure Water, Pure Love, a ministry of the Women’s Missionary Union that seeks “to provide missionaries with water filters and the people they serve with wells that offer clean water, free from disease-causing microorganisms,”
  • supporting the Central Baptist Church annual Christmas Closet,
  • supporting Heaven’s Loft, a Baptist Health Community Wellness Center “that encourages low-income expectant mothers and parents of young children to receive prenatal care, well-baby care, immunizations and education,” financially and by giving diapers, baby wipes, and other goods,
  • providing school supplies for children,
  • supporting the Central Baptist Church food pantry,
  • supporting Central Baptist Church foster parents,
