The purpose of this church shall be the advancement of the Kingdom of Jesus Christ. It shall seek to attain this goal by developing Christian fellowship for worship, for spiritual growth, for ministering to one another, and by witnessing and sharing Christian love to meet the spiritual, physical, and social needs in the local and world-wide community.

You are invited to come every Sunday and rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is our privilege to continue serving Him into our 180th year of ministry here at North Scituate Baptist Church.

Preaching This Week:

Please join us to worship our Lord on Sunday September 25, 2016. The message will be delivered by our pastor, Rev. Dr. Daniel W. Cottrell. We are back to having two worship services, as well as Sunday School for ALL ages. We would love to have visitors with us and it is always great to fellowship with all believers as we gather to praise our Lord. So come join us for worship and let your heart and soul to be touched by the Holy Spirit and renewed through the Gospel of Jesus the Christ.

Upcoming Events:

Art Festival

We need more volunteers to help with the food and the parking. Shifts are 3-4 hours, and we promise to relieve you when your shift is over! We encourage youth to participate, and families to work together—children under 12 can sign up with a parent. We are especially in need of a young person for each shift in the middle of the day and afternoon to be a “runner” between the booth and the kitchen. The clean up shift on Monday is also important, to assist those who have been working all weekend. For volunteers who sign up, some parking is available at George Burde ’s house on Silk Lane, which has easy entrance and exit. We are using the Sign Up website to manage the schedule. You can see the schedule and sign up for a shift by clicking here. To sign up in person, call the church office at 647-3238. Questions? Call Donna Sherman at 688-6479. Thank you!

The Great Bible Experiment

What word comes to mind when you think of the Bible?

Some think of sacred, holy words—words of truth, comfort, and inspiration. Some think of words indicating confusion, question, and doubt. Others think of words of exclusion, bigotry, and restrictive laws. And a growing number of people prefer not to think about it at all.

This series of town-hall style discussions about the Bible is traveling to four cities that surveys claim are the least “Bible-minded” in America. Presented by the Massachusetts Bible Society, we will have real talk about this book that is both the bestselling book in the world and the most challenged. This program is made possible in part by an award from The BTS Center. The statements made and views expressed are solely those of the participants.

One of the featured speakers will be Rev. Anne Robertson, Executive Director, Massachusetts Bible Society.  She is known to North Scituate Baptist Church.
