The Brotherhood ministry at Robinhood Road Baptist Church includes several different opportunities for the men of our church to become connected through fellowship, service, and Bible study.
Our Brotherhood fellowships together several times per year on Sunday mornings by having breakfast together in the fellowship hall. These breakfasts are coordinated by Hollis Stinson and typically happen in January, April, July, and October. The food is always home-cooked and the fellowship is warm and friendly.
Our Brotherhood also works closely with the Disaster Relief Ministry of North Carolina Baptist Men. Currently we have seven men in our congregation who have completed the training necessary to be part of the recovery and rebuilding teams that NCBM sends all over our country in times of crises. NCBM has sent teams to places such as Gulfport Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina, Ground Zero in New York after 9/11, and the mountains of West Virginia after flooding. Bill Hall serves as our Disaster Relief Coordinator and keeps our congregation informed about future training opportunities and mobilizes our team in times of need.
Another ministry sponsored by our Brotherhood is our Handyman Ministry which takes care of the needs of widows and elderly folks in our congregation. Joby Poteat coordinates this ministry and sends men from our congregation into the homes of church members in need to do small projects such as changing light bulbs, building hand rails on porches, and various other minor repairs.
Finally, one of the newest and most fun parts of the life of Robinhood Road Baptist Church is the Brotherhood Horseshoe League sponsored by our Baptist Men.
The league begins in April and every other Monday night throughout the summer we gather on the church property at by the horseshoe pits and teams of two compete to see who are the best ringers. Joby Poteat serves as our league commissioner and handles sign-ups and schedule making. This league is open to both men and women and is very much centered around fellowship more than competition.
