If you review our various ministries, you’ll see that in our ministry both to each other and to the community, we place a premium on

  • knowing God and His Word
  • and sharing God and His Word with each other.

That’s our goal: to know Christ and make Him known. We cannot know Jesus Christ apart from the Bible. As Jesus Himself said, the Scriptures are what testify of Him (John 5:39).

Beyond pursuing Christ in Scripture is the wonderful experience of learning about His love together. The love of Christ is best comprehended “with all saints” (Ephesians 3:16–19 ).

If you were to visit us, you’d find ordinary, sinful people...saved from their sins and being transformed by Jesus through His Word and Spirit (see 2 Corinthians 3:16–18).

Since 2010 we have used Regular Baptist Press VBS curricula. We are thankful for the many volunteers from the church family who help with this ministry. Typically, we take one week in the summer and hold vacation Bible school Monday through Friday in the mornings.

VBS includes Bible lessons, songs, skits, crafts, healthful snacks, and games (outdoors if at all possible!).

VBS for 2018 has been scheduled for July. We are doing RBP's "Moose on the loose: Discovering God's Forever Forgiveness." Check back for details.

Sunday school for adults and children meets at 9:30 a.m. Believing the Scriptures to be profitable for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16–17), we value digging into Scripture. The adults have covered a variety of topics over the past several years:

  • Old Testament survey
  • Apologetics
  • Leviticus
  • The structure and message of Hebrews
  • The Gospel of Luke
  • A church-wide Bible reading program (downloads available)
  • The RBP study, Showing and Sharing My Faith
  • The RBP study, Genuine Faith

We are presently studying the book of James (Genuine Faith).

Please note: Nursery services are provided during the Sunday school hour.

We want our children to put their hope in God (Psalm 78:5–7). To put their hope in Him, they need to know Him and what He is like. They come to know Him through the Scriptures. Our Sunday school teachers teach through curricula from Regular Baptist Press. Children’s classes are available for all ages.

Please note: Nursery services are provided during the Sunday school hour.

Generally, children join their parents for the first part of the morning worship service, and are then dismissed to chilren’s church. It is important for children to see their parents and other adults worshiping God.

In chilren’s church, they have a time of worship and song, and an age-appropriate lesson from the Bible.

Please note: Nursery services are provided during the Sunday morning worship service.

When we gather to worship God, we first need to understand what God has done for us in Christ. Then, we respond with worship and grateful service to Him.

Our worship services consist of congregational singing, worship through giving, the public reading of Scripture, prayer, special music during which members use their musical talents to enrich truth with song, and a message from the Bible.

Bible messages typically cover a passage of Scripture. Most often we begin a book in the Bible and work through it from week to week, getting each passage in context.

Once a month, the congregation celebrates communion, an observance that reminds us of the reality and finality of Jesus’ death in our place. It is in Jesus’ death and resurrection that we find the forgiveness of sins and the hope of eternal life.

Please note: Nursery services are provided during the Sunday morning worship service.

The Sunday evening service is a more informal time of Bible study and praise. The congregation has opportunity to tell each other about how God has been teaching them and what God has been doing for them.

The Sunday evening service provides opportunity to cover topics one might not be able to cover during the morning worship service. Right now, we are viewing and discussing the film series "Unlocking the Mysteries of Genesis".

Please note: Nursery services are not provided during the Sunday evening service.

Prayer is essential for any congregation...not just private prayer, but corporate prayer. Prayer is one of God’s ordained means to His ordained ends: that is, He uses the prayers of His people to accomplish His work.

This is something we may never understand, that instead of “doing it all Himself,” God left the work of ministry to His people. We have set aside this time of prayer for a chance to knit our hearts together, praise God for what He has done, pray for His will to be done, for our daily needs, for forgiveness, for power to do what is right.

Please note: Nursery services are provided during the Wednesday prayer meeting.

Periodically, the ladies of the church meet for a series of weekly Bible studies, lasting from six to thirteen weeks. We have been able to read and discuss a variety of worthwhile books, including

  • C. J. Mahaney’s Humility: True Greatness
  • Elizabeth George’s A Woman’s Walk With God: Growing in the Fruit of the Spirit
  • Nancy Leigh DeMoss’s Choosing Gratitude: Your Journey to Joy
  • Wendy Horger Alsup’s By His Wounds You Are Healed: How the Message of Ephesians Transforms a Woman's Identity
  • "Parenting Growing Children" using principally Paul David Tripp's Age of Opportunity, with supplemental material from other books
  • Most recently, "Prayer Life: Learning to Pray in a Distracting World."

The studies provide an opportunity to challenge ourselves with the Word of God and speak more openly about how it has applied to our lives.

Current Session

The ladies Bible study is "Pursuit of Holiness" hosted at Village Inn at Oakview Shopping Center. Join us for breakfast at 9:30 AM the first Monday of each month.

Babysitting is not provided. Contact the church with any questions.

Our church has had the opportunity to hold a monthly Bible study at Louisville Care Center in Louisville NE. Residents gather for a time of singing, prayer, and a Bible message. Sometimes, the children of the church assist with the ministry, too, by singing some of the songs they have learned.

Music provides us a way to adorn truth with beauty. Congregational singing makes up most of our music: it is important for the congregation to participate together in worship, to take advantage of words well written by other Christians to and for God.

In addition to congregational singing, we also have been blessed with gifted church members who minister to the congregation by singing and playing the songs they have prepared.

On Wednesday evenings during prayer meeting, children have begun meeting for King's Kids. The children...

  • Work to memorize and comprehend new songs.
  • Have a Bible lesson (currently studying the doctrine of God and what He is like).
  • Wait in suspense to find out "What's in the box?" (object lessons).
  • Take prayer requests and pray for them.
  • Enjoy treats.
  • Play review games as time allows.

King's Kids is off to a great start. You're welcome to join us!

Our congregation enjoys spending time together. The ladies of the church coordinate events throughout the year:

  • A dinner following the morning service for any 5th Sunday in a month (four a year)
  • Easter sunrise breakfast
  • Winter banquet
  • Summer Sunday school picnic
  • Harvest dinner, progressive dinner
  • Care packages for college students
  • Church decoration

We also have opportunity to fellowship with other area churches through Bible conferences and retreats to Whispering Cedars Baptist Camp.

The men of the church (and visitors are welcome!) meet on Friday mornings at 6:30 a.m. at a local restaurant to study the Word and fellowship. Generally, men take turns leading each week's discussion.

Contact the church for details.

We recently finished What He Must Be...If He Wants To Marry My Daughter by Voddie Baucham, Jr. (see here) and then Jim Berg's Changed Into His Image, and through 2012, the New Testament. We are currently reading through Proverbs at one chapter a week.
