The Church Art Group now meets the first Sunday of each month at the church (these sessions last approximately 2 hours, so please bring a sack lunch) and on the 3rd Sunday of each month at the home of Avis and Jeremy Baptist Home. The first Sunday classes meet immediately after church and the third Sunday sessions meet from 6:00-9:00 PM.

You do not have to be an artist to attend; only a willingness to try is necessary.

In an effort to grow our congregational family, the congregation is starting a "Prayer Circle." Those interested Prayer Warriors can gather to pray for the congregation and for the needs of individuals and friends of the congregation. The Prayer Circle will be on Wednesday evenings after choir practice starting at 7:40 PM. We all know the power of prayer. We hope you can join us as we lift our voices in praise and thanksgiving to our Lord. The Prayer Circle is held in the quiet of the Library.
