Christmas in August This month the children sponsoring Christmas in August will be collecting items for a North American Missionary. They will send the collected items to bless them with an early Christmas gift. Our chosen missionary is Chaplain Ron Harvell. He says, "I am responsible for ministry to Air Force members throughout the Middle East. The items you send us will be a "cup of cold water" to forces in this region. The quilts will comfort the wounded and the ill. The coffee will open doors of hospitality as chapel teams minister to forces stationed here or passing through. We will use the study Bibles to disciple young believers." We are collecting: study Bibles (NKJ, NJV, NASB); handmade twin bed quilts; ground coffee and Keurig cups; gum; baby wipes; beef jerky. Please locate the boxes at each church entrance and outside the church office to place your items in. We will be collecting through August 31.

Everyone is looking for a place to belong. Life can be extremely difficult and often takes twists and turns that we don’t understand, leaving people feeling alone and without purpose. At Warrenton Baptist, we believe that you are invaluable, and that you have a unique place in God’s plan! He’s created you with unique gifts and passions that He desires for you to use for His kingdom’s works!
As a church family, we strive to build one another up in the love of Jesus Christ by living life side by side with one another, in unity and in fellowship. We also value the disciplines of Bible study, worship, and service, both local and international, as we seek to be obedient to Jesus’ command to “daily take up our cross and follow Him.”
Whether your primary role in life is parenting children, studying, or working to provide for a family, there is a place and a ministry for you! We invite you to partner with us as we join Christ in what He is doing right here in Fauquier County and around the world!
