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.

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.

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.
