Matthew 28:18-20 "And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

Bible Study Classes - Men, Ladies, Married Couples, Teens, Primaries, Juniors
We know that “…we are ambassadors for Christ,” II Corinthians 5:20 and we desire to share Christ with all those around us. We do this personally, in our day to day lives, speaking openly of our faith to our friends, family members, and neighbors. We also understand the importance of being involved in the weekly organized soul-winning time that our church has scheduled. We meet weekly on Saturday mornings at 10:30 AM for the express purpose of winning souls to Christ. We also offer periodic training classes dealing specifically with the area of personal evangelism, where we teach people how to reach people for Christ.
Colossians 2:6-7 “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving.” We understand that once someone has received Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour, it is vital that we personally invest in their spiritual growth. Many of our men and ladies, within the ministry, have been trained and have a great desire to be involved in this vital area. First Steps for New Christians is a one-on-one, thirteen week discipleship course made available during our Wednesday evening 7:00 service. In-Depth Discipleship/Counseling is also available for those seeking Biblical guidance in in a variety of areas including: marriage, family, relationships, life-dominating sins, fear, worry, depression, and proper use of your spiritual gift(s).
This ministry is unique in the way it involves a broad spectrum of the church family in the areas of personal evangelism & discipleship. G.R.O.W. (God Rewards Our Work) is based on I Corinthians 3:6 “I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase.” Some send hand written post cards on a monthly basis to those who are new to the area, inviting them to the church services. Many participate in the scheduled GROW outreach days on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. We canvass neighborhoods when we are promoting special days at the church. We continue to do door-to door evangelism. This is also the time when our teachers and church workers visit their class members to help them in the area of personal discipleship. Some even assist in the nursery during these times, allowing others the opportunity to be involved in outreach.
We financially support our missionaries monthly and pray for them daily. We have an Annual Mission Conference each spring, with a designated theme, spotlighting all of our missionaries. It is during this conference that new missionaries present their ministries and, veteran missionaries report on the progress of their existing ministries. This is also when we make our annual Faith Promise Missions Giving Commitments.
Each Sunday morning we provide FREE TRANSPORTATION for adults and children from the surrounding area. Many of our members assist in this ministry, bringing others to church for the Sunday and Wednesday evening services.
Bible Study Classes
We have Sunday School and Bible Study Classes appropriate for all ages: children, ladies, men, married couples, young adults, and teens. These classes are taught by faithful, committed, caring teachers with a desire to help each class member know Christ personally and, grow day by day in their relationship with Him.
Each week we enjoy godly music that speaks to the heart from our adult choir, small groups, duets, solos and instrumentals (piano, guitar and viola). Opportunities abound to use the gift of music in a Christ honoring way.
Nursery is provided (0 - 3 years of age) for all services, including 9:30 AM Sunday School.
This ministry is for children (4 year old - 6th grade). Midway through the Sunday morning service, children are dismissed to attend the Junior Church Service. Junior Church time consists of singing, a practical, age appropriate challenge from God’s Word, and a brief snack time. Particpation in Junior Church is optional, parents may also choose to keep their children in the service with them.
Young Adult & Youth Ministry
Weekly classes meet Sunday, at 9:30 AM. Practical teaching, purposeful activities, and compassionate mentoring. We are committed to reaching the next generation for the glory of God.
The children (4 year old - 6th grade) prepare at the beginning of their weekly Sunday School Class and, sing in the Sunday morning service several times a year.
