Making a Difference Through Ministries
Serving Christ is one of the most fulfilling parts of being a Christian. To know that your service is making a difference in the lives of others can bring joy to the heart of any believers.
Whether you are taking care of the precious babies in the nursery or sharing the gospel internationally, Miles Road offers some great ministries to get plugged in to based on your spiritual gifts and natural God-given talents.
The music ministry of Miles Road Baptist Church has two primary purposes. The first and the most important is to sing songs that keeps Jesus Christ in a central position. Jesus said, “if I be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.” Secondly, we strive to provide music to help prepare and lead the congregation in corporate worship. The music ministry desires to see people drawn to Christ in a personal relationship with him. Throughout God’s Word, music and worship always go together. We hope and pray that as we sing and worship God in each of our services that you would do the same with us. “I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will show forth all thy marvelous works. I will be glad and rejoice in thee; I will sing praise to thy name O thou Most High.”
Youth Worship Choir
This choir is for 7th through 12th grade and sings for the worship services at various times throughout the year. They meet every Sunday from 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm during the school year.
The celebration choir leads our congregation in worship every Sunday morning during our worship services. The Celebration choir does special concerts during the year, as well as our annual Christmas program. They meet every Sunday night from 7:15 pm – 8:30 pm in the choir loft. A nursery is provided. There are opportunities to sing solos and sometimes to be a part of an ensemble if you are a member of the choir.
We here at Miles Road believe in instilling the Word of God in our children’s hearts, and we think that one way is by attending Sunday School. We have an outstanding Sunday School Program. Our teachers are loving and caring people who not only teach Christ’s love but show it also. Only Bible based material is taught.
This ministry is designed to teach our 3-year-olds through 5th graders about worship. It is designed to follow the format of “Big Church.” They have a time of Bible study, singing, and prayer. The children learn church procedures and etiquette and are encouraged to serve in several areas such as ushering. This is all done at their level. Children’s church also includes flannel-graph teaching, crafts, games, or object lessons.
AWANA (Approved Workman Are Not Ashamed)
AWANA is a global, nonprofit ministry committed to believing that the greatest impact for Christ starts with kids who know, love, and serve Him. How does AWANA fulfill this mission? Through God’s guidance and power, AWANA strives to reach kids.Kids represent the most incredible opportunity to make a long-term impact on our world for Christ. Offered through local churches, community groups, and homes, AWANA reaches kids where they’re at and walks alongside them in their faith journey. Those kids who come to faith at an early age discover God’s purpose for their lives and hope for the future. Ministry leaders and parents witness the profound impact Awana has in reaching kids with the gospel and watching them grow as long-term disciples. That’s why so many families and leaders have returned year after year, week after week, for more than three generations.

We want to introduce you to our MRBC Women’s Ministry opportunities. There are many opportunities to get involved. We extend our warm, enthusiastic welcome to you to get involved in any of these ministries and events, as well as several other areas in our women’s ministry in which you can not only serve but form lasting friendships and grow in your relationship with Jesus Christ.
Are you connected? Our Ladies Small Groups are the best way to “plug-in” and connect with a meaningful, in-depth fellowship at Miles Road Baptist Church! When you join a Small Group, you will meet your group weekly to share in each other’s day-to-day faith journey. Our Small Groups pray together, share life’s victories as well as challenges, and read and discuss exciting books by noted Christian authors—particularly suited to your needs as a woman, wife, and mother!You will experience substantial spiritual growth, and you will develop long-lasting friendships with the other 6-8 women in your group! Groups meet for 1½ hours weekly, and they’re designed especially for your busy life—with no homework required (unless you specifically prefer a group with homework assignments). Groups meet at various times throughout the week (both day and evening) throughout the year in varied locations to accommodate many differing daily schedule-demands.
There are ongoing women’s large-group Bible Studies held during the week. We have outstanding teachers that lead the group in transforming study topics. You are sure to be challenged and uplifted by taking part in one of these groups!
We have lots of great opportunities for men to connect with other men for prayer, accountability, discipleship, as well as great fellowship. One of the ways you can get involved is through one of our men’s small groups.The men’s ministry offers frequent fellowships that include exciting guest speakers and life-transforming teaching. Developing leaders is vital at Miles Road, and one of the best ways for men to grow spiritually is through discipleship groups. The times and teachers may vary, but the content is always the applicable Word of God.
