Our mission efforts are led by our Mission Committee which coordinates the variety of mission efforts our church is engaged in. The Church's philosophy is to involve as many men, women, boys and girls in being the presence of Christ in our community and world. In addition to the numbers of people who volunteer at the John 3:16 Center, Union Mission, Baptist Men Disaster Relief efforts our church has some intentional efforts at specific times throughout the year.
FREE Kid's Carnival
Each year in the spring the church offers a one day Free Kid's Carnival for the children of the greater Littleton area. Since 2006, Littleton Baptist Church, aided with the support of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of NC, has offered a fun day for our children most of which could not participate if it were a paid event. The past several years more than 400 adults and children have enjoyed free hot dogs, drinks, cotton candy, popcorn and more. This annual event includes special activities like the inflatable bounce house, slide, and obstacle course, plus games, music, crafts, and balloons. Each child receives a free "goodie bag" which includes snacks, bottled water, toothpaste, toothbrush, pencils, pads, reading books and a Christian book on their age level. A health screening is offered for all participants.
Lacts Food Pantry
Lacts Food Pantry is a community effort of some area churches to provide food relief to local citizens at or below the poverty level to assist them and demonstrate the love of Christ. A food bag is given monthly to those who apply. The distribution takes place the fourth Friday of each month.
Baptists On Mission
Littleton Baptist supports the NC Baptist Men (Baptists on Missions) with an annual offering at Easter time and sometimes with special offerings when disasters occur. Some of our members are trained for disaster recovery and respond to events. Most recently members have helped with recovery efforts from Hurricane Matthew, Hurricane Harvey, the 2018 Greensboro tornado and Hurricane Florence. We also participated in rebuild projects in Lumberton after Hurricane Matthew.
Handy Man Missions
Our church helps our community with various handyman projects such as building ramps, repairing homes and other miscellaneous work.
Fellowship Fund For Local Benevolence
Eight times a year our church celebrates the Lord's Supper. At the conclusion of these events an offering is taken for our Fellowship Fund which is used to enable the church to offer assistance to those in the community with special crisis needs that may arise. The generosity of our people enables many physical and spiritual needs through these mission efforts.
Special Mission Offerings and Mission Support
We support many local and global causes for mission efforts. We give regularly and generously to the Global Missions Offering for Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, Cooperative Baptist Fellowship of North Carolina, and the Cullom Baptist Association. Additionally, we provide ongoing support to the John 3:16 Center of Littleton, and the Union Mission and Room At The Inn of Roanoke Rapids.
