Missions and Mercy Ministries

Clothes Closet

            Our most active mercy ministry. On the first Saturday of every month we give out free clothes to those in our community. You can help out by donating clothing items or (even better) coming on Saturday to pass out clothes and to help build relationships with those who come to receive clothes. For more information call the church office (434-845-4600).

Deacon Ministry

            “For those who serve well as deacons gain a good standing for themselves and also great confidence in the faith that is in Christ Jesus” (1st Timothy 3:13 ESV). Our Deacons are handpicked men who are dedicated to serving the families of this church. They take care of our shut-ins and widows and each family or individual that joins is assigned to a deacon for prayer and mentorship.

Health Team

            There are many doctors, nurses, and health professionals in our congregation. This team serves the church by providing free clinics, health advice, and running blood drives to donate blood to the Red Cross. They are interested in helping us honor the Lord with our bodies.

Mission Trips

            As a member church of the Southern Baptist Convention, we give a portion of our collections to the International Mission Board (IMB) and North American Mission Board (NAMB). By doing this, we are always supporting missions abroad. We also participate in local missions through the Lynchburg Baptist Association (LBA). West Lynchburg Baptist has sent many mission teams of its own to places across the globe including Haiti, Baltimore, and South Asia. We are a church with a heart for missions. Our local branch of the Women’s Missionary Union (WMU) has missionary circles where they get together and pray for specific missionaries, raise support for them, and help them with practical needs.
