From October to May, on Wednesday nights enjoy our Discovery Bible Club. The Helper Club is for ages 4 and 5. The Watchman Club is for grades 1 and 2. The Warrior Club is for grades 3 and 4 and the Champion Club is for grades 5 and 6.
The Discovery Bible Club is divided into four parts for children to enjoy. First, the children enjoy classroom time where leaders will assist them in working through their individual lesson books. These lessons are designed to help children form a strong biblical foundation, upon which to build the rest of their lives. In addition to the lessons, children are also challenged with multiple projects in which they can earn badges and rewards for their efforts. Every other week a teen or adult will provide a devotion from the Bible for the members of the club. These devotions provide the children with examples of the principles and stories from God’s word on a level they can more easily relate to and remember.
Discovery Bible Clubs also include music and a really exciting game time.
Bible-Way Bible Institute
Years ago Bible-Way Baptist Institute was begun for the sole purpose of offering a continued Biblically based education for both God called preachers and lay members who desired to pursue a greater knowledge and intruction of the Bible, to prepare themselves for the ministry, and to be used in ministry here as opportunities to serve presented themselves.
Here at BBI we offer a 4-year program to anyone who wishes to pursue a continued Bible education and a 5-year program for all God-called men who wish to pursue a Biblical eduction and preparation for the ministry. It has always been our earnest desire to train our own people right here in their home church rather than look to some other place of Biblical education. We believe it is the church’s duty to teach and train their own with a sound scriptural Bible based education.
We are happy to say that most of our Sunday School teachers and many others have graduated from BBI. Also, we have graduated many lay preachers who are now working right here in their home church until God places them elsewhere. We have also graduated several men who are now working on the mission field. Alan Hawthorne received his degree from BBI, and has been called to the field of Indonesia and is actively working there for the glory of God. Adam Rosenbalm is a graduate who is currently on deputation for the field of Ghana, Africa. Truly, it is not only a pleasure to help in educating these young men and women; it is also gratifying to see and know how God is using them even today.
If you are interested in this program, please express your interest to Pastor Pittman personally after a church service, or send him an email.
Every member of the family will be sure to receive the spiritual learning they need in the fully graded Sunday School at Bible-Way. God has blessed us with wonderful teachers who sacrifice their time and energy to prepare and present the Word of God on a level easily understood by children and young people. Pastor Pittman does a tremendous job teaching the adult class and there are classes for those in between. Psalms 127:3 “Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD:…”
Youth and Young Adults
We are continuing to develop excellent programs for the teens and college age adults at Bible-Way. The opportunities to enjoy Christian fellowship with others your age are limitless. It is our goal to focus on this age group in the coming year as our young people are making important and life altering decisions and need godly advice and example. Our youth and college/career classes participate in many social and spiritual activities throughout the year.
Every year in July we hold a summer camp for our children and teens. This camp is a time of spiritual challenge and renewal. There is great preaching and teaching as well as many fun activities for the campers. Our goal is to use this opportunity to help our youth develop into faithful servants of our Lord. For further information, please use the contact page to request a packet from the church office.
So that you can devote your full attention to the teaching and preaching of the word of God, we maintain a fully staffed nursery, which is kept spotlessly clean. All the toys in our nusery are periodically disinfected for your baby’s protection. Most important of all, the ladies in our nusery will care for your baby with true love and tenderness.
Every Sunday afternoon our lay preachers spend time singing with and preaching to the residents at Golden Years nursing home in Hamilton.
Acts 20:20 “And how I kept back nothing that was profitable unto you, but have shewed you, and have taught you publickly, and from house to house,” On Thursday nights and Saturday mornings we go out as a church into the community to share Christ with those who will hear. We believe that is the biblical method of reaching the lost for Christ.
Our preaching services are uploaded to the internet for the use of those who cannot make it to the church services. We have heard from many the blessing that this ministry has been to them. Our missionaries overseas can use it as well to feed themselves spiritually. We also make available messages on CD by request.
