Local Missions Overview
What a privilege it is to labor to make much of Jesus and bring hope to the South Shore with the gospel! God has called SSBC to “make disciples” on the South Shore, which makes every SSBC member a missionary to the South Shore. As John Piper says, “missions exists because worship doesn’t.” And so we long to see more people on the South Shore worship Jesus Christ.
In view of our mission, we want to lovingly engage and share the gospel with the people of the South Shore. Our Local missions team exists to help SSBC accomplish three goals…
Equip. We seek to equip SSBC to engage and evangelize the people of the South Shore.
Mobilize. We seek to mobilize SSBC members in their towns to gather for prayer, fellowship, brainstorming, and planning towards more effective outreach.
Build Relationships. We seek ways to build strong relationships with the surrounding community, beginning with the town of Hingham.
GraceWorks is a Local Missions outreach of South Shore Baptist Church.
In response to God’s lavish grace in our lives through Christ,
GraceWorks will mobilize SSBC Growth Groups and individuals
to love our neighbors,care for the needy,and glorify God through practical acts of service.
