Sunday School

 

The Sunday School program at Bible Baptist is designed with personal spiritual growth in mind. We have graded classes from preschool through senior high, then we have age appropriate classes for college/career age students, young and middle aged adults, and seniors. All of our classes are taught by qualified, trained teachers who study and prepare each week to feed students from God’s Word.

 

 

Youth & Children Ministries

 

Children

 

Psalm 127:3 tells us that “…children are an heritage of the Lord.” At Bible Baptist Church we believe this! Every effort is made to reach and train children while they are at a young and tender age. Children not only receive training in Sunday School, but also in an exciting Children’s Church service called “Kid’s Own Worship” on Sunday Mornings. We also offer Kingdom Kid’s Choir for children 3 years old – 11 years old each Sunday evening at 6:00 PM. The children’s choir performs monthly in church services and during special productions throughout the year. On Wednesday nights, we have the the Word of Life Gopher Buddy Club for Preschool – Kindergarten aged children, and the Word of Life Olympian club for children in 1st – 5th Grade. Word of Life children’s clubs offer children the chance to have fun and fellowship in game time, while learning the truths of God’s Word through in-depth Bible Study, Scripture Memory, and Daily Quiet Time.

The teenage years are vital in every person’s life. At Bible Baptist we realize this, and seek to see teenagers saved and trained to serve in the local church. The focal point of our youth ministry is Word of Life. Word of Life is for all youth from 6th – 12th grade, and meets every Wednesday from 7:00 to 8:30 PM. This program is designed to be a time of fun and fellowship, with a strong emphasis on discipleship. Through the Word of Life program, students have a chance to earn college scholarships, gift cards to favorite restaurants and stores, and other awards.

The main focus however, is building a foundation on the Word of God through Bible study, quiet time, and scripture memory. Our Word of Life ministry is also incorporated into Sunday School each week, where students are taught the major doctrines of the faith.

Teenagers at Bible Baptist do not sit on the sidelines, but actively participate in serving the Lord. Teens are part of the choir, orchestra, nursery, and Sunday School ministries.

Children and teens are taught that they are the future of the church, and they must do their part to serve the Lord.

Music Ministry

 

Choir

Choir

Music is an integral part of worship at Bible Baptist Church. Our music ministry is designed to worship the Lord and prepare the listener’s heart for the preaching of God’s Word. Each worship service at Bible Baptist features our adult choir and orchestra as well as special music from our church musicians. Our choir also performs several concerts each year, along with special productions for Christmas and Easter. You will find that the theme of our music ministry is excellence.

We believe that we are to do “all for the glory of Christ”, and Christ deserves the very best! At Bible Baptist, concerts are also commonly performed by such leading Southern Gospel groups as the Specks, Greenes, Ruppes, and others.

 

 

 

 

 

College & Career Ministry

 

The college and career ministry of Bible Baptist Church is always on the move. This age group is active not only in their own ministry, but also in almost every other area of the church. Working in children’s, youth, music, and missions ministries are the focal point for this group.

 

 

Adult Ministries

 

At Bible Baptist, our adult ministries provide an environment where middle aged and senior adults can be with other Christians their age while studying God’s Word. Our adult ministries have many activities each year for all age groups. The adult Sunday School staff at Bible Baptist Church is without doubt one of the most qualified anywhere in our area. Our teachers include teachers with more than twenty years of experience, some with seminary degrees. On Sundays, our younger and middle aged adults often study practical topics like marriage and parenting. While our seniors study books of the Bible. Our Middle adult Sunday School program is also actively involved in supporting the Hope Children’s Home in Tampa, FL.

Senior citizens are not forgotten at Bible Baptist, but take an active roll in our church. This ministry often takes organized bus trips to area attractions and activities. Adults visiting our church are encouraged to choose the ministry that they are most comfortable being a part of.
