Thank you for visiting our website!
We hope your time spent on the Elizabeth Missionary Baptist Church website is informative and helpful.
Our church has a caring congregation that wants to share the love of Jesus with our local community.
The preaching, teaching and music at our church is centered on God's authoritative and infalliable Word, the Bible.
If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you as our guest.
Our next Bible Journaling meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 16 at 7pm in the fellowship hall. Come join us as we creatively study and meditate on God's Word! Bring a friend!
There will be more photo opportunities available every Sunday in August, both before Sunday School (8:30-9:30am) and after worship service (12:15-1:15pm). Sign-up sheets are on the back bulletin board so be sure to put your name down for a day and time if you haven't had your directory photo taken yet. Thank you to all who have participated thus far!
Our country is in desperate need of prayer, and Franklin Graham is encouraging all Christians to hit their knees. His Decision America 2016 tour is coming to North Carolina on Thursday, October 13, 2016.

Here's a great online evangelism tract from Evangelism Explosion (EE). Share it with those you know who need to know Christ as Savior and Lord. http://evangelismexplosion.org/resources/online-tracts/english/
The children of our church will be doing Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes a little differently this year. We would like to start collecting monthly donations of certain items. Details of each month's featured item will be shared with church members, and anyone who wants to participate can drop off items in collection boxes located in the side entry ways.
During the month of August, we will focus on collecting school supplies. Did you know that many children cannot attend school because they don't have school supplies? Suggested items include pencils, pencil sharpeners, erasers, pens, colored pencils, crayons, markers, watercolor sets, notebooks, note pads, index cards, construction paper, scissors (with a blunt tip), ruler, protractor, stickers, coloring and activity books, self-inking stamps, chalk, small chalkboards, dry erase boards and markers, etc.
Cash donations will still be accepted in November and, of course, any wishing to make their own shoeboxes are welcome and encouraged to do so. Thanks to all who helped our church send off 81 shoeboxes in 2015. For 2016, the children have set a goal to make at least 200 shoeboxes - "With God all things are possible" (Matthew 19:26)!
On Saturday, April 16, our children, youth, and high school Bible drillers participated in the regional drill in Coats, NC. All did a great job! We are so proud of them! They have worked hard this year to hide God's Word in their hearts.
Bible Drill is a Bible scripture memorization program. Children learn verses, key passages, and the books of the Bible. They are challenged to locate these scriptures in their Bible within a 10 second time block. Youth also learn verses, key passages, and the books of the Bible, as well as doctrinal scriptures. These older drillers are challenged to locate scripture in just 8 seconds.
In conjunction with Mrs. Jane and Friends Gospel Ministries, our church is excited to help share the Good News of Jesus with children through the Right Path Club, a Christian after-school club at Butler Avenue and Sunset Avenue Schools. The club meets every Thursday afternoon at Butler Avenue and every other Tuesday afternoon at Sunset Avenue. During club time, workers/volunteers tutor the children, feed them a snack, and share the Gospel with them. Our church is enjoying being a part of this ministry which reaches 100+ local kids every week. To learn more about Mrs. Jane and her ministry, please visit https://www.facebook.com/msjaneandfriends/ .
