Children’s Church children's-ministry-wo

Centerville Baptist Church believes that children are the future church. Scripture is clear regarding how Christians are to raise their children.

To this end, the church offers a Children’s Church for those from age three to six and a Jr. Church for those from age seven to twelve.

During these services, children are taught the practical age-appropriate application of God’s Word in a safe, engaging, and fun atmosphere.

The Lord Jesus Christ clearly demonstrated His love for children.

“But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Mathew 19:14

Bus Ministry bus-ministry-wo

Each Sunday morning our buses start their engines and go out into the communities that surround Centerville to bring boys, girls, teenagers, and adults to Sunday school.

For over thirty years, faithful members of Centerville Baptist Church have spent time canvassing neighborhoods to find people who need transportation to Sunday school. Sunday mornings and afternoons are spent picking up and then dropping off bus riders.

The number of people who ride our buses each week are a testimony to the faithfulness of God to bless those who go out “into the highways and hedges” to bring souls into the house of God.

It is our desire to reach people in our communities with the gospel through the bus ministry of Centerville Baptist Church so that they may come to trust Jesus Christ as their Savior.

If you or someone you know needs transportation to church, please email or call us today.

Bus Routes:

  • South Boston Route
  • Crystal Hill Route
  • Vernon Hill Route

“And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.” Luke 14:23
