Missions Page

Taking the good news to the world of God’s desire to have a personal relationship with each of us is primary at South Reno Baptist Church.  We want to be part of reaching our community, state, nation, and the entire world with His message of love, grace and redemption.   We can ALL have a part:

Some of us can GO,

Some of us can help SEND.

 ALL of us can PRAY.

South Reno Baptist Church has an active Missions Team chaired by Mitch Sperling, 

 Local Missions

In addition to inviting friends and neighbors to church, South Reno members are involved in a wide variety of local mission efforts.  There is a place for everyone to serve.

 As just a small sample of activities: our Youth have led Bible School activities in local neighborhoods; we conduct children’s programs and tutoring in less advantaged areas; knit and crocheted items are made for local hospitals and the homeless; coffee, donuts, and clothing items are shared with the unemployed who gather at Galletti Way.  There are several dozen South Reno Baptist Church groups reaching out on a local level.       

      

South Reno also encourages your prayers and financial support of these local ministries:

 State Missions

South Reno Baptist Church partners with other Southern Baptist Churches in need throughout the State of Nevada.

In 2017 youth and adult crews repaired and painted the Round Mountain parsonage and installed new appliances.  Previous work crews have assisted with modular home repair and refurbishing on the Indian Reservation at Yomba.

Plans are presently underway to acquire a mobile kitchen trailer for on-site use during disasters throughout Northern Nevada.

National Missions

 In 2014, a South Reno Baptist Church Team traveled to one of the most economically depressed counties in our country, in Kentucky, to staff a local church’s Vacation Bible School and free community restaurant, assist with an adult day-care facility, provide quarters and soap at the county laundromat as they shared Christ, rebuild and repair damaged homes, reach out to the unsaved, and worship with local believers.

International Missions

In addition to supporting the Southern Baptist Cooperative Program, which underwrites missions/missionaries worldwide, South Reno Baptist Church has sent out a dozen medical and/or Vacation Bible School/outreach teams to Cambodia, Peru, Venezuela, Uganda, and Costa Rica since 2006.  Participants pay their own expenses, which are kept to a minimum because these are working trips living among the locals, not luxury vacations, although a day of local sightseeing is usually included.

 

We are sending a medical team to Cambodia in November 2017.

Please pray for our Missions Team as they explore the possibility of trips to Central and South America, Greece, and Italy.

 Missions Table

 When you visit South Reno Baptist Church, stop at the Missions Table in the foyer to view a video of missions at work, borrow a missionary-focused book from our lending library, and pick up mission-related literature.

Our Welcome Desk also has a rack of pamphlets describing the many activities and groups that reach out to our community.
