Gateway Rescue Mission

February 28

Each month we have a mission emphasis.  Sometimes our ladies go to a mission point and serve the Lord by working at the mission.  Other times the entire church family participates as we did last month with the Blair Batson food collection and we do with the shoeboxes in October/November.


Lest we forget, in Jackson we have people who have no place to stay at night and very little to eat.  Gateway Rescue Mission meets those needs for many every day.


We at Alta Woods are asking that you bring desserts or sweets to help Gateway meet those needs.  On Thursday, February 28, we will deliver whatever cakes, pies, cookies, honey buns, Little Debbie cakes that we can collect.  If you would like to make a cake or pie, that would be fantastic.  I am sure the Lord will bless whatever you give.


If you would like to volunteer to serve a meal that day, you may.  Just let us know so we can tell them.

Blair Batson Childrens Hospital, Mission Project for January

Thank you for the generous outpouring of love and concern for the families of children who are suffering from terrible accidents or illnesses.  I believe this was the largest food collection we have taken.  


I can tell you that those in charge of this at the hospital were overwhelmed at the sheer size of our contributions.


Special thank you to Henry Williams who helped me load and deliver to Blair Batson.

Mississippi College Scholarship Fund

Mississippi College’s Christian Studies students will become eligible next year to receive a $1,000 scholarship from Alta Woods Baptist Church. 

The Jackson church’s first award going to a Mississippi College student will be in Fall 2019. 

Church deacons and other leaders agreed in October to offer the annual scholarship at Baptist-affiliated MC.

Established 70 years ago, Alta Woods Baptist Church seeks to reach people for Christ in a variety of ways.

Its diverse missions extend to the Blair E. Batson Children’s Hospital in Jackson, the women’s prison ministry, Operation Christmas Child and the Port Ministry in New Orleans, to name a few.

The church at 168 Colonial Drive already has strong connections to Mississippi College, just a few miles away in Clinton.

Burn Page, who chairs MC’s Christian Studies Department, serves as the church’s pastor. He worked as the church’s interim pastor for five years prior to that. At Mississippi College, Page also serves as the director of the Institute for Christian Leadership based at Provine Chapel.

Page and MC Vice President for Advancement Bill Townsend recently joined church deacons, including acting chair Shellie Bailey, to make the scholarship announcement.

Applicants for the $1,000 award would be any MC student in Christian Studies, Page said. His department supports other student scholarships at the Christian university.

Over the past 20 years, Alta Woods Baptist Church has seen its membership dwindle on its spacious south Jackson campus. Members either passed away or moved to other nearby metro Jackson communities.

A 1,200-seat sanctuary at the Baptist church was no longer being fully utilized. For many years, families and members of all ages used to fill the church’s Sunday School rooms and sanctuary each week. Today, Alta Woods Baptist has about 70 members.

In June 2016, Alta Woods Baptist Church leaders began a partnership with Jackson’s New Jerusalem Baptist Church pastored by Dr. Dwayne Pickett. It allows both Jackson churches to share campus facilities at a time when New Jerusalem Baptist Church needed more space.

As a result of the agreement, the Alta Woods congregation is teaming with New Jerusalem Baptist Church to further their common mission for the cause of Christ.

For details on the church’s new scholarship offered at MC, contact Burn Page at bpage@mc.edu or call 601-925-3292.

Several months ago now, Cindy Hamil, daughter of Billy and Peggy Roberts, put a fresh face on our Alta Woods Website.  We think it is really nice.  Thank you, Cindy, for a beautiful job!

Site Content

Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
