We Never Retire Our Spiritual Gifts

From the very beginning, this has been a place for life-long ministry opportunities.

Residents work together in support of missionaries. Some have fellowship with newly-saved prison inmates through Bible correspondence courses.

Each resident seems to have carved out his or her own ministry. Assisting older residents. Volunteering as hostess in the dining room. Leading Bible studies. Maintaining equipment…Sharing the harvest of a vegetable garden.

Emmaus Correspondence School—Prison Ministries
Many of our residents are involved in evangelism and discipleship through prison ministries. ECS Prison Ministries distributes Bible correspondence courses in jails and prisons throughout the United States. Each course completed by prisoners includes essay questions that have to be evaluated.

A group of Pittsboro Christian Village residents gathers each week to exercise their spiritual gifts by marking the courses and giving feedback to the prisoners. Our residents receive, grade, and return about 200 courses each week. Many prisoners have come to know the Lord Jesus Christ through this work. The Lord has used the residents of Pittsboro Christian Village in the lives of these Christians.

Workers Together
2 Corinthians 6:1 begins with the words, “We then, as workers together with Him.” 

Each month sisters from the Pittsboro Christian Village family get together to prepare and send packages to assembly-commended workers, both home workers and missionaries on the foreign field. Boxes of clothing, shoes, personal sewing kits, wall texts, calendars, eyeglasses, crafts items, Sunday school materials, and other items of need and comfort are gathered, prepared, and shipped off.

These gatherings are a great time of fellowship, a continuing exercise of the gift of service, and a support to the Lord’s workers. The local post office knows us well by the many boxes we ship each month.

Pittsboro Bible Assembly
Unique among Christian retirement communities is the Pittsboro Bible Assembly, a fully functioning local church within the main building of Pittsboro Christian Village. You don’t even have to walk outside to get to the meeting.

The assembly offers a remembrance meeting and two teaching meetings each Lord’s Day, a weekly prayer meeting, ongoing men’s and women’s Bible studies, and several Bible conferences each year.
