Coats has the opportunity to support and partner with a family who has served in East Asia for many years – a place where there is a lack of hope and Christians face constant persecution. We send small, short-term teams to encourage the workers, share Jesus in house churches, and engage with non-believers in these communities.
Each year, Coats Baptist sends a team of volunteers to Guatemala City. From children at local schools, orphans, and elderly on the fringe of society, we aim to share the love of Christ with everyone we encounter. These trips may also include house construction and stove installation for families.
Mission teams have the opportunity to construct small block homes for families in need and conduct evangelistic events such as VBS, sports camps, and door to door visitation. We have also hosted medical and dental clinics with the support of local Honduran churches. These trips are all coordinated through North Carolina Baptists on Mission.
Below are a few examples of ways that the local body of Christ at CBC can meet the needs of those closer to home while serving in the name of Jesus. If you have any interest to serve in one of these capacities, feel free to contact Danny Stevens via email or by phone at (919) 279-7063.
Baptists on Mission
Coats partners with NC Baptists on Mission in local missions and disaster relief efforts as needs arise. There are still many in need of assistance in the aftermath of Hurricane Florence. We are focused on rebuilding projects in New Bern, NC.
Coats also partners with Samaritan’s Purse to help with relief and rebuilding efforts on a local and national scale. We are currently involved in rebuilding efforts in New Bern and Whiteville, NC.
We are also called to meet the needs of those in our community who are elderly or disabled. We invite you to serve by helping complete tasks such as lawn maintenance, simple home repairs, and building wheelchair ramps.
