Ministries

Women's Ministry Team

The Women's Ministry team provides women opportunities to study and apply God’s Word in their lives; to provide fellowship events to enhance and build relationships; and to seek opportunities to serve others.

Our small group events include Bible studies, book reviews and discussions; classes in painting, crafts, exercise class, & personal & workplace safety.

"One Way" Youth Group

Our Youth are taught and live out the truth of John 14:6. We promote spiritual growth through serving our church, attending exciting worship events like Winterfest, and serving our community. We have special service events like our annual "Cookie Day" and actively assist in our VBS programs.

Children's Ministry

We have an updated nursery and loving workers to care for our youngest worshipers. Our older children serve by participating in worship, visiting our local nursing home, and presenting an annual Christmas program. Children's Church is offered during each worship service where our kids learn about Jesus and have a lot of fun.

Women's Missionary Union

Our Women's Missionary Union is active in promoting local, national and world missions. The WMU leads our promotion of national offerings and has several special events to raise funds and promote the spread of the gospel. The WMU is also very active in supporting our members and community through card ministry, meals and visitation.

Nursing Home Ministry

A group of loving Howertons members visit weekly to the Carrington House in Tappahannock. They bring fruit and snacks, plant a garden, and have other special events including a talent show and beauty pageant.

Operation Christmas Child

Howertons puts a special emphasis on supporting global missions through Operation Christmas Child. We have an annual bake sale, silent auction, dinner and talent show for OCC. Our annual packing party is a great time for a great cause.

Baptist Men

Our Baptist Men serve our church by sponsoring a monthly churchwide breakfast that is a great time for good food and fellowship. Our men also seek opportunities to show the love of Christ by serving our neighbors and those with special needs.

Music Ministry

Our Choir enhances our weekly worship and special events by using their gifts. They practice every Tuesday night and are always looking for new members to participate with the group or to perform individually.

Puppet Ministry

Our Puppet Ministry gives our youth an opportunity for ministry and enhances our worship experience. Puppet performances include Easter, Youth Sunday and at VBS. The ministry recently expanded to dramatic performances with and without puppets.
