Bus Ministry

The Bus Ministry – Luke 14:23, “And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” For over 20 years now Gospel Light Baptist Church has been sending out buses to all parts of Southern Maryland. We know what the importance of hearing the Word of God is to an individual for both Salvation of the lost and spiritual growth to the believer, Romans 10:17. Every Saturday morning our bus Captains are out visiting and encouraging riders to come to Sunday School and Church on the bus. Each Sunday morning our buses are equipped with a staff of workers: a safe driver, a dedicated captain, a diligent secretary and a faithful runner. We escort the rider from their door to the bus where they are greeted and seated safely. On the ride to and from church, they will have games and sing songs. At Church they will be escorted to their appropriate Sunday School Class, where they meet their Teacher and are taught the lesson from God’s Word the Bible. After class they go either to Children’s Church or the adult Church, depending upon their age, where they enjoy singing and the Preaching of God’s Word. Then it is back on the bus where they are taken home and escorted to their door again till next week.

Teen Ministry

The Teen Ministry – The hope and future of this world lies in the lives of teenagers. Through this ministry, we are trying to introduce the youth of our community to Christ and to be Christian examples to others after they are saved. We are working to help these teenagers take a stand against sin and stand for right.

Missions Ministry

Our Missions Vision – Our Missions Vision is firmly rooted in Holy Scripture. Consider these verses from the Bible:” And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15″ But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.” Acts 1:8It is perfectly clear that all Christians are to have a part in witnessing and spreading the Gospel throughout the entire world. We have our “Jerusalem,” it is Mechanicsville. And we have our “Samaria,” it is Southern Maryland. And we certainly have “the uttermost part of the earth”. In fulfilling Christ’s Great Commission, Our Mission Vision is to support and send witnesses of the Gospel of Christ to a lost and dying world. We follow the Biblical examples of missionaries being sent by the Holy Spirit and the Local, Independent, New Testament Church. – Acts 13:1-5 And all of our supported missionaries are in harmony and agreement with our doctrinal statement, and adhere to our Mission purposes.

What Can You Do? Pray for our missionaries and their families. Pray that God will use them to lead the lost to Christ. Pray for Christians and lost souls in foreign lands. Pray that churches will be planted and prosper. Pray for our missionaries’ spiritual and physical needs. Pray for the power of the Holy Ghost upon their ministries. Pray that host countries remain open to the Gospel. Give to Missions. Ask God what He would have you do to support Missions. Consider making a special offering to Missions. Consider becoming a regular financial contributor to Missions. You may give by marking the Missions area of your Tithes and Offering envelope, or marking your check with your offering to Missions. Remember, missions giving is in addition to, and not in place of your Tithe. God Bless You!

Nursery Ministry

Our Nursery Ministry – Our ladies at Gospel Light provide a clean, well-kept and well-staffed nursery for crib babies to toddlers (two year old). The nursery is available for every service, to provide the parents an opportunity to relax and enjoy the service. This can set the parent’s mind at ease that their child is in the best of hands and under good care.
