Our Missions

We are passionate about the local church, and are on mission to see God’s kingdom established across the earth. See how you can help:

First Baptist Food Pantry

In an effort to help needy families in the community, Oliver’s Grove supports the Food Pantry at First Baptist Four Oaks with food donations. Each week, we deliver grocery bags of members donations containing packaged, non-perishable food items. Provisions such as Bagged Rice, Canned Fruit, Canned Meats & Fish, Canned Soups, Canned Vegetables, Dried Beans or Peas, Spaghetti Noodles & Sauce, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Grits, Oats are always welcomed. In some cases, bags of toiletries are donated.

The First Baptist Food Pantry is operated from the church library located at 403 N Main St, Four Oaks. It is open to needy families on Thursdays, from 12:00pm—2:00pm.
Backpack Buddies

Backpack Buddies

Backpack Buddies is designed to provide children experiencing food insecurity with nutritious, kid-friendly, pre-packed meals for the weekend—when they would not have access to a school’s free lunch and breakfast. Oliver’s Grove in collaboration with churches in our community provides bags of food to children in need at Four Oaks Elementary School. Our church packs bags once a month to help with this effort. Our donations are collected the third Sunday of each month.

Operation Christmas Child

The objective of this mission effort, sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse, Inc., is to collect and deliver shoe boxes filled with toys, educational supplies, and a Gospel pamphlet written in their language to children in war-torn or poverty stricken countries around the Christmas season.
Beginning each fall, A Lead Team plans and leads promotional efforts to encourage church families to touch children’s lives with the love of Christ by packing shoe boxes and bringing them to worship for dedication. Many families in the church have made this a traditional part of their Christmas giving.

In addition, Oliver’s Grove has worked with their neighbors, The 301 Brothers Motorcycle Club to collect items for this mission effort.

Triangle East Baptist Association

The Johnston Baptist Association was organized in 1903, for the purpose of joining together for the glory and work of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Composed of more than 70 churches throughout six counties, our network works cooperatively to fulfill the Great Commission, and to strengthen, facilitate, and inspire our network churches to advance the gospel. In 2021 the association rebranded itself to the Triangle East Baptist Association in order to remove “boundary-specific” limitations and to incorporate twelve additional member churches from six neighboring counties.

As a result of the exponential growth in these areas, we look to develop strategies, and equip each other for the task ahead of “Pushing Back the Darkness…One Church Plant at a Time”.
