Student Adoption

Each year college students from VMI and W&L attend our church and seek people who will provide a home away from home for them. You and your students decide together the level of support you wish to offer. It may be as little as a meal in your home or restaurant every once in a while, to as much as making them a part of your family visiting your home each Sunday. Please contact the church office (office@manlybaptist.com or 463-4181) if you would be willing to help with this wonderful ministry!



Volunteer Drivers Needed to Pick up RATS

We need volunteers to pick up RATS on Sunday mornings at 9:30 am in front of JM Hall. We have magnetic MMBC signs that you can place on the side of your vehicle to help them know who is picking them up. Please contact the church office (office@manlybaptist.com or 463-4181) to volunteer.

201808_Endownment Fund donation


October is Endowment Fund Month

In October, the church will observe the annual MMBC Endowment Fund Month, with a theme of “Enriching the present and investing in the future.”

What is this month about? It will be a time to celebrate the projects recently funded by the endowment that are making an impact in our community

now, and a time to consider giving to the endowment for future outreach

activities. If one of your prayers is to continue to have a strong MMBC into

the future, then this would be a wonderful time to give to the Endowment Fund. No gift is too small. We are all in this together, and each gift, large or small, when combined, adds up to so much more. Please consider a gift to the fund in October, or any time during the year!


Casserole Ministry


Casseroles are now in both the refrigerators in the downstairs pantry and the small kitchen beside the office. 
Please take one anytime you know of someone in need.
Just remember to sign out on the sheet so we don’t have multiple people taking the same casserole to the same person at the same time.



Rockbridge Area Relief Association

Item of the month for September is cooking oil.
Please leave your donations in the box outside of the nursery or choir room.
Thank you!

Flip flops

Children’s Flip Flops For Honduras

We are doing our annual children’s flip flop collection for Hondurans.
Parasites enter the body through bare feet in the tropical countries where sanitation is sometimes non-existent.
A pair of flip flops can help keep a person healthy.

You may leave them in the box near the choir room.
