The Old Colony Baptist Association is a network of Baptist Churches who come together to do ministry that one church could not. It also functions as a way for our churches to fellowship and feel to love of their sister churches. We meet twice a year, spring and fall. In the Fall, we have a mission Saturday where we go to one of our churches and assist with projects that the church can not do on it's own. These include rebuilding the church steps, cleaning the church yard, removing shutters, painting. The hosting church provides lunch and we leave after worshipping together.
We have our annual trip to see the Red Sox as a great time of fellowship. We assist churches with ordinations, attend installatioins and anniversary celebrations. We build deep bonds of love and friendship undergirded by the love for Jesus Christ.
In the spring we host workshops on a variety of topics for our churches. In 2014 this workshop was on small church mnistry, In 2015 the workshop was on stewardship. 2016 the speaker was Eddie Hammett who spoke on Reaching People Under 30 While Keeping People over 60. We are already working on our 2017 conference. Watch this site for details.
We provide some financial support for seminiarians, for those going on missions trips and for campers attending our Baptist camps and conferences.
