Mission Opportunities

Boys and girls come to Baptist Children’s Homes from situations of unimaginable neglect and abuse, causing them to feel alone and forgotten. When you add a global pandemic on top of their already traumatic circumstances, their feelings of hopelessness are amplified. The Baptist Children’s Home of North Carolina is in need of grocery store gift cards. We encourage each of our CRBA churches to donate at least $100 in gift cards to help these children in need. Drop off for the gift cards will be at the CRBA office (1812 US HWY 70 E, Morganton, NC 28655) now through April 28th, 2023. Please get in touch with our office at (828) 437-0137 for more information.

Bibles for India
There was a recent evangelistic crusade in India where thousands came to faith in Christ for which God receives the glory. We want to help the Victory Baptist Association in India (led by pastor Pandu Maddala) by providing bibles for those who have made decisions for Christ. If you or your church would like to help, please send $3 per bible you wish to purchase to Catawba River Baptist Association, and we will forward the funds to India. This is another easy way to be involved in international missions.

Cakes for KIDS

In May of every year, we deliver 300-500 cakes to our Baptist Children’s Home in Clyde, NC and we need your help. Please consider baking a cake (or Cakes) for the wonderful children being taken care of at our Baptist Children’s Homes. Once you bake the cake(s), place them in one of the cake boxes we provide at our office and deliver it to our CRBA office, we will take all the gathered cakes to Clyde and other designated locations where they will be used for dessert after meals. And, on a child’s birthday, the child will choose which cake they want for their birthday celebration. This is a great opportunity for our churches and individuals to impact these wonderful children and the staff at our Children’s Homes. For more information and to pick up free cake boxes please stop by our CRBA office.
