Being an instrument of God’s Spirit involves sharing our faith and helping people in need both in our community and around the world, so Brewster Baptist Church has a strong commitment to Missions.
Our Mission Support of The American Baptist Churches of USA (ABCUSA) enables us to join with other Churches to make a greater difference in the world. In addition, we support (both financially and with hands-on service) mission work in our local community, region and world as well as respond to mission emergencies and opportunities.
