Reaching the World for Christ

Mt. Vernon Baptist Church is fully committed to seeing the Gospel spread throughout the world. We do this by supporting several ministries.

Gideons

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations”… Matthew 28:19

The Gideons International is an Association of Christian business and professional men and their wives dedicated to telling people about Jesus through associating together for service, sharing personal testimony, and by providing Bibles and New Testaments. While they are often recognized for their work with hotels, they also place and distribute Scriptures in strategic locations so they are available to those who want them, as well as to those who may not know they need them.


Honduras

Mt. Vernon has had members serving in Honduras since 2000 and built a church in 2005. We have given monthly support to that church since then. Teams continue to travel annually to support the spread of the gospel in Honduras. Mission teams help meet medical needs, do light construction, host back yard Bible clubs, distribute water filters and love on the people of Honduras.


Lottie Moon

Since 1845, the IMB (International Mission Board) has partnered with churches to send missionaries to live and work among those around the world with little to no access to the gospel. 100%of your generous gifts provide missionaries the services they need to live among the unreached peoples they serve.

REACHING America FOR CHRIST

Mt. Vernon is also fully committed to seeing the Gospel spread throughout America. We do this by supporting these ministries.


Annie Armstrong

Your prayers and gifts to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering® provide support for thousands of missionaries. These men and women are planting new churches in unreached communities and meeting needs through compassion ministries. Every day, lives are being impacted and transformed.

National Mission Trips

Through a partnership with the Walker Baptist Association we have opportunities to serve on short-term mission trips nationally. Trips are family friendly and give an opportunity for families to serve other communities by helping doing construction, yard work, church planting or helping another church's VBS.

REACHING walker County, ALabama FOR CHRIST

Mt. Vernon is committed to seeing the Gospel spread throughout our local community. We do this through several ministries.


We have a group of skilled volunteers who help to build handicap ramps, make repairs and help with yard work for those in our church and community who are not unable to do for themselves.


Food Bank of Central AlabamaWe have a dedicated group of volunteers who help provide food and clothing for 120+ families regularly. On the third Saturday of each month there is a food distribution. Through our Senior Grocery Program, each month food is delivered to those who are not able to attend the food distribution. Finally, the Food Bank has a partnership with local schools to provide food and clothing for students in need.


Grief Share


GriefShare is a video based grief support group. Anyone can join anytime, for any loss of a loved one. Mt. Vernon and Comfort Care Hospice jointly sponsor this group. We meet at the Comfort Care Hospice office, 319 19th St W, in the upstairs suite. (Parking is available behind the building.)




The Pregnancy Test and Resource Center is a Christian, pro-life non-profit organization that reaches out to local women and families who are facing an unplanned pregnancy. We strive to offer a nonjudgmental and confidential atmosphere while providing a refuge of hope, grounded in the love of Jesus Christ.
