At Berean Baptist Church, we have a wide range of ministries. These ministries not only cater to the many individual needs of your family, but also provide ample opportunities for Christian service.
Sunday School Department
Classes meet every Sunday at 9:45 A.M. Children's classes are divided by age and grade. We also have many adult classes including several that are designed for age specific married couples. Specific classes such as a singles class, Spanish speaking class, Vietnamese speaking class, and a class for ladies that are facing the struggles of life alone also meet on a weekly basis.
Nurseries are provided for all church services in our Amanda's Pandas Department. Five age specific areas provide a safe, enjoyable place for children from infants through age three. Each area is staffed with experienced, dedicated volunteers to care for the children. Activities include Bible stories and songs as well as play time.
The Youth Department at Berean Baptist Church is designed to give teenagers a secure place where they can have some fun and learn life lessons. With a balance of fun and responsibility, teenagers have many of their needs met by our Youth Department. We have 1-2 activities per month. We have evangelistic opportunities for all 7th - 12th graders. We have a yearly camp retreat. We are also very active in our community. We would like to invite you and your family to join our church as we work with you to give your teenager the opportunitites they need to succceed in life.
1st - 6th grade children meet every Sunday at 5:45 P.M. They participate in competitions, Scripture memorization and activities. They are also given character training through their various clubs. They also meet once a month on the same Thursday evening as the Christian Ladies Fellowship. The activities range from gym nights to local activities such as bowling or miniature golf.
Berean Christian Academy
Here at Berean Christian Academy, it is our desire that every student in our school be trained and guided in the direction of becoming exactly what God wants them to be. We feel that we have the best academic program of any school in the area. Also, we endeavor to instill within our students godly principles that will help them make the proper decisions on their own after they leave the influence of our school.
Berean Baptist College
Berean Baptist College offers an exciting opportunity for young people to prepare for a life of service for our Savior. It is unique because of its balance, personal touch, and its desire to teach the importance of being a servant.

We have four outreach teams that work on a rotating basis with each team meeting once a month on a Tuesday at 6:50 P.M. Team members make phone calls, write letters, deliver apple pies to visitors, and make personal visits in homes.
Our bus ministry is designed to meet the needs of our community. Unfortunately, in our day and time many have to work on Sundays. So we offer a service which will allow you to go to work and still get your children to church. For more information on areas our busses cover, you can always contact our church offices.
Public School Ministry
Berean Baptist Teen Church is a ministry set up for public school teenagers from the ages of 12 - 18. (Our goal is to help these teenagers feel right at home in a comfortable environment that is conclusive to training them for the adult services) We try to teach them that there is a way that teenage Christians are supposed to live and that while doing their best in trying to live for Christ, they can still have fun. Our teenagers are taught the importance of the Bible, obeying authority in their lives, and most importantly, the Gospel of Jesus Christ. All of our workers are experienced in helping teenagers and are in the services to meet any need that they may have.
Our deaf ministry is unique in that our deaf members are encouraged to be an active part of our church. All services and special events are interpreted for the deaf. The deaf pastor, Bro. Rocky McReynolds, teaches the Deaf Adult Sunday School Class.
Our Spanish Department has everything God wants for you and your family: Bible preaching, fellowship, and the opportunity to grow in grace. Our services are as scheduled: Sundays at 9:45 A.M., 10:45 A.M., and 6:00 P.M. Come and experience a place where you can grow in the knowledge of our Lord. (I Peter 3:18)
Christian Ladies Fellowship
This group meets once a month on a Thursday night. Each meeting provides an opportunity for Christian ladies to fellowship as well as relax, while away from their responsibilities. There are different activities as well as a different theme each month. Also, opportunities are made available to participate in specific clubs at each meeting.
Nursing Home Ministry
Services are held every Sunday afternoon at many local nursing homes. These sometimes forgotten people are shown love as well as given the Gospel on a weekly basis.
Sunday Night Bible Class
This weekly Bible class meets Sundays at 5:45 P.M. This is a great way to increase your knowledge of various genres of the Bible.
For those who wish to participate in the music ministry, we practice on a weekly basis. The choir sings in both Sunday services, and meets for practice every Sunday at 5:45 P.M.
Pastor's Prayer Partners
Members of this group meet with the Pastor every Monday at 7:00 P.M. A prayer meeting is held to pray for the immediate needs of the church as well as needs of church members.
Summer Youth League Basketball
Every summer, Berean Baptist Church conducts an intramural basketball league, complete with playoffs and a championship. This league is set aside to serve young men ranging from 3rd to 7th grade. These young men are taught the fundamental values of character and teamwork. We encourage you to join our league where teamwork, faithfulness, and fun are incorporated into a rewarding experience for your child.
