CONNECT | form a relationship; to join, link or unite
Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter–our lives are built on connections. At Bible Baptist, we look beyond “posts” and “likes” and work to build authentic connections within our church family with the goal of helping each other develop a deeper relationship with Christ. Whether through events or weekly ministries, our desire is to see people “join together” to provide encouragement, support and God’s truth to each other.
“Bible Baptist is a loving church community where we are taught God’s Word, are encouraged to become more like Christ, and have the opportunity to serve others.”
Adult & Youth Group Ministries
Adult Bible Studies
Following our morning worship service, we take the time to both connect and grow with those around us by attending Adult Bible Studies. These smaller groups, broken out by age/life stage, provides an opportunity for us to fellowship with each other and learn more about God’s Word and how it applies to our lives.
Men are crucial components to the family at home and the church family at Bible Baptist. Because of this, we know that men need to stay focused on God and His Word (the Bible) so they can lead properly. At Bible Baptist, we provide opportunities for growth through:
- Book studies (Friday mornings for eight weeks in spring and fall)
- Prayer breakfasts/Work Mornings (first Saturday of every other month)
- Men’s Activities throughout the year
At Bible Baptist, we realize the importance of ladies connecting with ladies. At any stage of life, it can be easy to feel isolated, disconnected, or maybe simply tired. Regularly-scheduled ladies’ meetings provide a context for ladies to get to know each other better and encourage each other in the Lord. These meetings are usually organized around a particular spiritual theme, but the specific activities vary from time to time. Whether they involve a special speaker or workshops about parenting, couponing, or exercising, these meetings help bring the ladies closer to the Lord and to each other.
Teen Impact is the ministry to teens (7th-12th grades) that runs throughout the school year and breaks for the summer. The teen ministry at Bible Baptist Church exists to partner with the parents in discipling their teens to become God-loving, Word-filled, ministry-minded disciple makers. Teens meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evenings and 11:15 a.m. on Sunday mornings. The program includes activities for both junior high and senior high teens throughout the school year.
The nursery ministry provides a safe, caring environment for children ages 0-2 so that their parents can learn and worship without distraction during the services. The nursery ministry is available during all Sunday services as well as our Wednesday evening service. In addition to the care of qualified nursery workers, we provide a tag system for security, and pagers to let mothers know of any needs that require their personal attention.
The preschool ministry at Bible Baptist Church is designed to instruct children ages 3-5 in the truths of Scripture, and to prepare them for being involved in the adult worship service. Preschoolers meet during the worship service at 9:45 AM and for Sunday school at 11:15 AM. On Wednesdays during the school year, the preschoolers are involved in the GOPHER BUDDIES program, and during the summer they have a special program that includes lessons and games. During this tender age, the Gospel is presented regularly.
Age 3-6th grade
The elementary Sunday school program provides separate classes for children 3-years-old to 6th grade. Led by teachers and teachers’ assistants who are committed to caring for and instructing them, these classes form an important part of the children’s growth in Biblical understanding.
Junior Church, for children in 1st through 3rd grade, meets during the Sunday morning worship service at 9:45 AM. Junior church is designed for age-specific challenges and instruction from God’s Word. The children also enjoy songs that instill Biblical principles.
Olympians Kids Program
OLYMPIANS is our kids program for Wednesday nights during the school year. It is designed for children ages 3 (by September 1st) through 6th grade.
Olympians (1st – 6th graders) and Gopher Buddies (3 – 5 year olds) meet on Wednesday evenings at 6:45 p.m. for an exciting time of Bible teaching, small group training, and learning to use God’s Word in everyday life. Each student receives a quiet time journal and bag that are age appropriate to help them grow in their relationship with God.
There are also several special nights throughout the year like School Pride Night, Fascar, and Carnival Night.
