The dictionary defines the word "Haven" as a place of safety or refuge. The Haven of Rest Missionary Baptist Church lives up to that name. Whether you are new to the area or simply searching for a church to call your own, Haven of Rest is the place for you. Our church has a rich history of community service. Haven of Rest operates a Food pantry, which feeds upwards of 300 people on a weekly basis. The church provides food to those members of the community who lack the financial resources to meet their family's needs. Our church's pantry relies on volunteers to package and distribute the food. Our food pantry program would be a great place to serve your church and your community!
A Church That Serves
Haven of Rest Baptist Church has a dynamic Youth Ministry! The bible tells us that we should, "Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it." Our Youth Ministry works toward the spiritual development of our community's young people, thereby assisting them in forming a Christ- centered spiritual foundation. Haven's Youth Ministry encourages our young people to serve God and their community through service.
Preparing for the Future
We Care About Our Seniors
Haven of Rest Missionary Baptist Church has a rich heritage of serving the seniors within the community. Our church has Haven Tower, which is a State of the Art eighty-unit apartment building designed for independent living right next door to Haven of Rest. The apartment building provides our seniors with the opportunity to form friendships with other seniors. Haven of Rest offers a weekly bible study at Haven Tower, which brings church to those, who in many cases cannot go to church. The Haven of Rest Church campus is the ideal place for a senior who doesn't drive but wants to attend church regularly.
