Averett Baptist Church

Averett Baptist Church was organized in 1888 in Nelson, Virginia. They are a mission minded church supporting local, North American and International Mission programs. Several of their members volunteer at The Clarksville Food Pantry and also with the Community Thanksgiving Dinner. The congregation also supports the Food Pantry with generous donations of food.

Averett supports the Bland County Shoebox ministry and Operation Christmas Child, normally packing over 400 boxes for these two mission projects. They are associated with the Concord Baptist Association and BGAV. They have a cabin at Camp Concord and are responsible for its upkeep. Their mission group, Adults on Mission, meets the first Monday of each month. Young Women's Bible study meets on Tuesday night and Young at Heart meets the second Monday of each month. Sunday School is at 9:45 followed by worship service at 11:00. Bible study is at 7:00 Wednesday night. 

Averett Baptist Church is a caring congregation that will gladly welcome you!

Happy #NationalNonprofitDay!

Did you know that Feed More partners with more than 250 local nonprofits across Central Virginia to get food out to those who need it? These hunger-fighting organizations include food pantries big and small, soup kitchens, places of faith and more — all dedicated to nourishing and empowering our neighbors in need.

And they make a huge impact: these hardworking agency partners distributed more than 30 million pounds of nutritious food to our neighbors in need across 29 counties and 5 cities last year alone!

We’re so grateful to work alongside these partners in the fight against hunger, and appreciate all that they do for the communities they serve! THANK YOU!
