Missions has been a big part of Providence Church since its beginning. We are known as the little church with
the big heart. Each Sunday we feature a section of our worship service called the Missionary Moment which focuses on
the missions efforts of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, and we pray for the missionaries each week.
Elizabeth Richards Missions Offering
has a special collection each year in addition to a regular budget item to support the Elizabeth Richards Missions Offering,
the Tennessee Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's mission outreach in the state.These moneys support Samaritan's Ministry
in Knoxville, Neverfail Community Church in Crossville, CBF College Student ministries, and Missional grants for TN churches.
Our local mission efforts include
regular donations to Helping Hands of Putnam County, the Cancer Care Fund of Cookeville Regional Hospital, Neverfail Community
Church in White/Cumberland Counties, the Elizabeth Richards Missions Offering for TCBF. The first Sunday of every month is
our collection day for Helping Hands of Putnam County, when members bring in non-perishable food and other items to be distributed
to citizens in Putnam County. We also provide meals for visiting college groups who come to Putnam Co. to volunteer for a
week with Habitat for Humanity. Providence Baptist Church has a heart for missions.
