For over 160 years and counting, the Matoaca Baptist Church family has gathered together weekly to worship the Lord Jesus. While the village of Matoaca is not known around the world, the impact of this church's giving toward missions around the world is significant. For years, MBC was a leading giver to the Cooperative Program of the SBC. Those monies are used to provide seminary training and fund missionary endeavors in North America and around the world. MBC continues to give generously to the Cooperative Program, mission projects like Operation Christmas Child, and toward local mission opportunities.
At Matoaca we love kids! The church's love for children and their families led to the beginning of Matoaca Child Development Center. This ministry is provided for the community in order to allow families the beautiful option to enroll their child in a daycare that provides a safe and loving environment to learn and grow. Hundreds of families have benefited from this ministry and we hope that many more will in the years ahead.
Over recent years, we have been reminded that the world is changing very rapidly. The Good News is that God never changes and that He promises to shepherd us through life in a way that honors Him! Over the past few years the church has made several changes in order to meet the demands of ministry in an ever changing world while still honoring our never changing God. These changes, while occurring even in the midst of a pandemic, are already bearing fruit in the life of the church and our community.
