Raceway Ministries
As a member of the National Fellowship of Raceway Ministries, our Raceway Ministries Martinsville volunteers serve at the events held each year at Martinsville Speedway. Our ministry tents (located in the campground area and just outside the grandstand) are staffed by our team members that provide free refreshments to race fans throughout the weekend. Our main ministry tent also serves as the location for a worship service that features music and a gospel message. In addition, we also serve the Speedway by providing golf cart shuttles to special needs fans who are attending the events.

New volunteers are always welcome. For more information about Raceway Ministries, visit our Raceway Ministries Martinsville Facebook page or call the HCBA at (276) 638-2951.

The Evangelism Team strives to be a resource for the churches in the Association to promote training in how to share the gospel, and to promote and implement area wide evangelistic events that proclaim the Good News.

Woman's Missionary Union
The WMU challenges believers to understand and be radically involved in the mission of God. (WMU vision statement)

WMU Tasks - Discover the Joy of Missions

Together the Association and its churches can accomplish the purpose of WMU:
• pray for and give to missions
• do missions
• learn about missions
• develop spiritually toward a mission lifestyle
• participate in the work of the church and Association

Operation Inasmuch (OIAM)
In October, 2013, 13 churches in our Association participated in Operation Inasmuch in a joint project with the Pittsylvania Baptist Association. We continued the mission in 2014, 2017, and 2019. OIAM is a one day mission event to provide opportunities for every member of our churches to become a missionary in our local community. It is for all ages and skill levels. Some of the ministries shared were at laundromats, gas stations, minor home repairs, thank you baskets for law enforcement and EMS, and toiletries for nursing home residents.
