Being an instrument of God’s Spirit involves sharing our faith and helping people in need both in our community and around the world, so Brewster Baptist Church has a strong commitment to Missions.
Our Mission Support of The American Baptist Churches of USA (ABCUSA) enables us to join with other Churches to make a greater difference in the world. In addition, we support (both financially and with hands-on service) mission work in our local community, region and world as well as respond to mission emergencies and opportunities.
Our Annual Holiday Fair
Every year we hold a very popular Annual Fair. All of the proceeds are distributed to local organizations. Over the last 16 years the Fair has raised over $458,000 – all donated locally. Of course, it got a little harder to do when COVID came along, so we moved it to online.
The 2021 Holiday Fair Silent Auction is online October 2 through 10! Please see our Holiday Fair page for details.

Have you ever wondered what it takes to send a missionary overseas?
It takes prayerful vision, planning and partnering to send the right missionary for the right task to be effective in meeting a country’s spiritual needs. And with your help through World Mission Offering, that’s what International Ministries does year after year all over the world. 100% of the World Mission Offering (WMO) is used to support the work of American Baptist missionaries and their partners around the world. This year we will also be celebrating World Communion Sunday when we take the World Mission Offering.
International Ministries partners and projects depend on your gifts to the World Mission Offering. Your gifts directly support the entire network of International Missions missionaries. Please give prayerfully.
