GROW, GROW, GROW
As Jesus said to his Apostle, Peter, in Matthew 16:18 - "And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it." Our everlasting goal, as Christians, is to grow the Lord's church from the foundations that He, Himself, had laid. We should always be vigilant to act in a kind and loving manner towards our fellow man and attract those who need the Lord and his teachings just as we do.
Acts 2:47 - "Praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
1 Corinthians 3:11 - "For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ."
While each Sunday we meet together and worship God, our Heavenly Father, as a congregation, we also take time outside of the ceremony of Worship to study the lessons in the Bible. We separate our classes into age groups in order to study and discuss what God's instructions for us are and build ourselves up in different stages of our lives. We have classes available after worship on Sunday and again on Wednesday evenings. These classes are open to any visitors that may be with us during these times. Please feel free to stop by during our times of service and ask which you would like to be involved in!

Our congregation has a strong and active youth group. The Youth Group is comprised of students from the 6th through 12th grades. We strive to educate those of our Youth Group through Bible classes, activities, summer camps and programs like Leadership Training for Christ (LTC).
VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL
Our VBS happens each summer. We spend 4 fun days singing songs, watching dramas, puppet skits, and learning stories form the Bible. We have classes available for children from age 4 to 6th Grade. Each year we try to focus on a specific character, lesson, or aspect of the Bible and teach it to the youth of our community with teaching and play. We strive to have a fun, kind, and loving atmosphere to allow the youth to feel comfortable and accepted during our VBS.
Since it's establishment in the 70's, our Benevolent House has been a successful part of providing aid to those in need. Whether they be within our own congregation, community, or even just passing through, we make material donations available to those who need them most. If you would like to donate articles of clothing, useful home items, children's toys, baby care items, or even furniture, you can drop it in the receptacles on the front porch or even just on the front porch itself. This is checked daily and the items are taken into the house for storage. We strive to maintain items of good quality so that we may properly aid those who need it.
The Benevolent House is open each Thursday from 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM. If you or someone you know is in need of anything that might be available, please feel free to send us a message using our Contact Page and we will do our best to accomodate. Also, please leave a good way of contacting you if a response is required!
LEADERSHIP TRAINING FOR CHRIST
Leadership Training for Christ is designed to stimulate and encourage spiritual, mental, and social growth among young men and women in the third through twelfth grades. Its mission is to achieve this growth by developing skills in leadership, Bible knowledge, and Christian servant hood.
Skill development in each of these areas is accomplished through participation in a variety of individual and group events that are conducted at a convention held Easter weekend each year. These events take place within the context of a wholesome and supportive environment designed for the purpose of fostering enthusiasm and high achievement among the participants.
The events are divided into grade categories and involve Christian young people from across the country. Participants compete only against themselves, and are encouraged to continually strive to be like Jesus in every aspect of their life.
The involvement and support of parents, local church leaders, and other interested adults in the preparation leading to and during the convention is encouraged. Although the convention primarily consists of achievement events, the weekend includes a worship service to reinforce the spiritual aims of the program.
Our Van Ministry is the evolved version of our Bus Ministry from many years ago. The Bus Ministry consisted of a single white bus that would pick up kids, adults, and elderly members and visitors who wanted to come to worship or any of our other services, but couldn't transport themselves. Since those days we have moved to multiple vans that are smaller, quicker, and much more comfortable.
We know that not everyone owns a vehicle or has a means of transportation. Whatever the reason may be, whether it's financial, physical, or age related, we want to help those who cannot otherwise get to the building for services. If you need a ride, please let us know by reaching out to a member or by using the information on our Contact Page.
The last Sunday of each month is our designated Friendship Sunday where we focus on fellowship and inviting friends to join us for worship and a meal. This changes our regular Sunday service meeting times. Following our normal morning worship and Bible class times, we come together for a congregational lunch in our multipurpose building across the street, and return at 1pm for second service before we dismiss for the day.
Occasionally, we may follow this format outside of the regularly scheduled Friendship Sundays. Everyone is welcome and we ask that you please stick around to enjoy a meal and fellowship with us!
