Lots of Ways to Get Involved
Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of Granite State Baptist Church is our mission to reach the world for Christ. It begins in our own community and spreads overseas to every nation. GSBC members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles or as important as teaching God’s Word. We are a ministry-oriented church that believes God saved us and ordained us to good works. Below you will learn about some of our many ministries.
Each month, Pastor & Mrs. Chamberland minister at the Women’s Prison in Concord, NH. This time consists of songs, prayer requests, and preaching. They are also available as other Saturdays open and service times need to be filled.
Several people from the church volunteer as prison revivals are conducted in Rhode Island with Rock of Ages Ministries usually 3 times each year. Also, they take mission trips to minister in the prisons of Alabama with Rock of Ages in March each year. Prison work is dear to the hearts of Pastor and Mrs. Chamberland as well as the members of GSBC.
Every first and third Friday night of the month the IMPACT youth group meets for a time of games, fellowship, and Bible study. The youth group grows together through this time as well as their Sunday school class. Several youth activities are scheduled throughout the year which have included snow tubing, zip-lining, mall scavenger hunts, youth rallies, and summer camp. The goal of our youth ministry is to assist the parents in the spiritual growth of the teenagers. Every teenager should leave the youth group with the desire, tools, and ability to live a faithful and fruitful life for God.
NURSING HOME MINISTRY
Currently, there are 3 Nursing Homes that are ministered in by members of GSBC. These services take place on Sunday afternoon and include fellowship, singing, and preaching. This is the Sunday service for those who are no longer able to leave their residence and attend inside the church. The importance of this ministry goes beyond just the weekly impact. Many of the elderly have lived lives that were faithful in church and consider it a great blessing that now they can have church in the Nursing Home.
CAPITOL BIBLE STUDY
Every Wednesday morning that the House of Representatives is in session, Pastor conducts a time of prayer and Bible study with all members of the House who desire to attend. This is a time that includes coffee and refreshments along with the time of encouragement from the Bible. Nothing is more important during this time than praying for and with each other. We believe that Public Servants are ministers of God in the State House and we must pray for them and encourage them in their walk with God.
LADIES’ BIBLE STUDY
Crystal Chamberland conducts this Bible study on Monday nights at 7:00 as a time to disciple new believers as well as “mature” Christians to study and grow together in the knowledge of the Scriptures. This is a wonderful time as the ladies fellowship together and help one another in their Christian walk.
MEN’S BIBLE STUDY
Tuesday night at 5:30 is a time set aside for the men to gather together and study the Word of God for practical application and discussion for everyday life. Whether it is studying through topics of the Bible or through books together, the emphasis is the same, draw closer and live closer to God than we did before. Strong men and ladies in the faith will lead to strong families and strong churches.
