Ministries

 

Sunday School

Our church seeks to provide each individual an opportunity to learn more about the Christian life through the Sunday School program. We not only provide classes for children, but for adults as well including: two adult classes, Teen class for 7th - 12th grade, 5th and 6th, 3rd and 4th, 1st and 2nd, and Pre-kindergarden and kindergarden. As the church grows and God increases our capacity to minister through Sunday School, more classes will be provided. It is our prayer that you will find the teaching in the Sunday School program to be beneficial to your walk with God, and directly practical in your daily life.

Nursery
Nursery services are provided for those with children two years old and younger.  The nursery is available during all services and we encourage those with young children to take advantage of this service.

Patch the Pirate Club
Wednesday evenings are extra special for children age three through sixth grade. Included every week are Bible memory, exciting Bible lessons, singing, activities, and even games. Children are encouraged not only to receive Christ as their Saviour, but to growin grace, to have daily devotions, and to develop a heart for singing God's praises.

Junior & Primary Church
Every Sunday morning at 10:30 we have exiting Jr. and Primary church services for our pre-kindergarden through sixth grade kids. Included weekly are puppets, skits, games, prizes, and a snack.

Youth Group
We are thrilled the our church has the priviledge of investing in the youth of our community. We take every opportunity to teach them the Word of God and encourage them to find and follow God's will for their lives. Regular activities are provided along with yearly youth camp trips.

Soul Winning Visitation
We believe it is the duty and responsibility of every child of God, regardless of age, race, or background, to be personally involved in spreading the Gospel, the good news of salvation.  We believe the Lord will cross our paths daily with those who need to hear that Jesus Christ not only loves them, but was also willing to lay down His life for them; and that they, by turning from sin and dead works and placing their faith in Him, will be saved.  Romans 10:14”How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?”

Abundant Grace Radio Broadcast
Since 2011 we have had the priviledge of preaching the gospel on local radio stations in Southern Illinois. The Abundant Grace Radio ministry exist to proclaim the unchanging truth of God's Word in an ever-changing world. Currently the program aires every Sunday morning at 9:30 on 1240 AM WEBQ out of Harrisburg.

World-Wide Missions (Faith Promise)
The purpose of our church is not only to spread the Gospel locally, but to as many people, in as many places, and through as many missionaries as possible.  We currently support thirty-five foreign & domestic missionaries/church planters monthly. As our church grows and our vision grows, it is our desire to support missionaries who will take the Gospel to the foreign lands and plant indigenous Bible-believing Baptist churches, reaching people, and training them to do the same.

Bus & Van Ministry
One of the ways we are able to reach children and families in this day and time is through the avenue of bus and van outreach.  The purpose of this ministry is to reach out to those who may not otherwise be able to attend church and bring them into the House of God to be under the sound preaching of God’s Word. If you would like a ride to church please visit the contact page for information on how to reach us.

Scripture Ministry
Our church is privileged to have a ministry of preparing the Word of God for the mission field. Every Tuesday evening at 5:30pm we meet to coolate, staple, cut, and box Scriptures. The books of John and Romans in several different languages are sent to the mission field for distribution. In the past eight years we have been priviledged to send out more then 800,000 Scriptures to the mission field. - I John 1:1 "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;"
