Our Sunday School

Every attempt has been made to have an effective, Christ honoring Sunday School. We have at least two adult teachers per class, who, take their job very seriously. Presently we are teaching through the Bible on a three year schedule. Following that we will teach a “How To” series, and then an in depth study in the New Testament. In the older classes we include memorization work. The parents are asked to help see that the children complete their weekly work, and submit it in a timely fashion to their teacher. There are reward trips for those participants who meet the established goals.


Our Congregation

Our congregation is made up of approximately one hundred members, with a youth group of about thirty to thirty-five. We strive to be friendly and will make every attempt to make you welcome.


Nursery

We have a nursery available for those who wish to utilize it. Women are available in every service, who would be more than happy to help you with your children.


Dress

As a rule our folks are dressed in their very best because of our desire to honor the Lord by giving Him our very best, even in our dress. This means a suit and tie for some, and blue jeans and polo shirt for others. Our ladies typically wear dresses or skirts, but you will not be treated differently based on your apparel. Our desire is to be a help and a blessing to those who attend our church regardless of their attire.


Worship

We like to think of our church as one that is attempting to preserve the “old fashion” way of worship. By this we mean worship that is not worked emotions of the flesh, but controlled by the Spirit of God. Our congregation feels freedom in our services to be obedient to the Holy Spirit. Therefore, it is not unusual to have personal testimonies of God’s goodness, occasionally there will be worshipful shouting by the saints, tears, the raising of hands, and amens in praise to God. This does not always occur, but is not foreign to our meetings.


Youth

The Bible plainly teaches the father’s responsibility for the spiritual education of the children. We know and honor this truth, and in no way believe the church is a replacement for this. But we are convinced the church can assist or re-enforce truth taught in the home. Therefore, as has been said previously, our church attempts to place an emphasis on the youth. The reason for this is first because we love and want to help them. But secondly, the potential they possess for the glory of God is phenomenal. We have Bible preaching that is applicable to our youth, an effective Sunday School program, youth choir, four Youth Sundays per year, four Sunday School outings per year, and two church-wide outings per year, as well an occasional youth meeting.
