Because this King did not know Joseph (or his God) and what he did for the land of Egypt, this King brought disaster over himself and his country.”

We are facing a new generation that does not know the Bible or the God of the Bible. The Bible stories such as Moses and the crossing of the Red Sea, David and Goliath, and Daniel in the lion’s den are slowly disappearing from the common knowledge of our own people. The names of the four evangelists, the miracles of Christ, the Beatitudes, the major doctrines of our faith, the Lord’s Prayer, and the love chapter have long gone from the memory of the American people.

When people look for culprits, two usually rise to the top – the Supreme Court decision about Bible reading and prayer in schools and TV/Media.  Both of these have their share of guilt and the people in those organizations will have to give an answer before God. However, churches all over the country have continued to teach the Bible for all ages – children, youth, and adults. There are so many ways that individuals and families can learn the Word of God and by doing so, get to know the God of the Bible.

We invite you to come to Central Baptist Church on Sundays and during the week to study the Word of God.

Starting on Sunday, August 11, 2011, we have classes for adults and high school students at 10 a.m. The adults will study the book of James and the high school students will study To Save a Life: Dare to Make Your Life Count by Todd Hafer and Vicki Kuyper.

On Sunday at 11 a.m., we have our worship service and Sunday School for children at 11:30, after they take part in worship.

During the week, Wednesday is our day for Bible Studies.

At 6:30 a.m., the men will be studying Jonah, followed by the book Radical by David Platt.

At 10:30, the group will be studying What in the World Is Going On? 10 Prophetic Clues You Cannot Afford to Ignore by David Jeremiah .

At 7 p.m., the group will be studying the book of Isaiah.

If you are a member of another church, we encourage you to ask about the various Bible Studies that your church offers and attend one of them. If you do not attend a church or if your church does not offer Sunday School classes or weekly Bible Studies, we invite you to be our guest. Come and experience a Bible Study, bring your children for Sunday School and stay for the Worship Service.
