Sweetgum Baptist Church Bus Ministry

     Sweetgum Baptist Church believes the Bus Ministry is a very important way to reach out to the surrounding community. Children and adults who wouldn't normally have a way of getting to church, are able ride our bus and become a part of our church family. The Bus Ministry can also provide transportation for some of our older members who no longer feel able to drive to many of our church outings.

Sweetgum Women Auxiliary Image

Sweetgum Women Auxiliary

     Sweetgum Women's Auxiliary is the name of  a special group of ladies from our church who administer to the needs of our members and the community in many outreaching ways. These dedicated women serve others by preparing meals for mourning families and many others in need. Whenever an event is planned for special occasions in our fellowship hall, these ladies always come through with food for everyone to matter how many people there are to be served. But most importantly, these ladies are feeding others more than just food.....they are feeding the souls of our community and church family with their commitment to the service of others.
