Benson Grove Bible Institute
“And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” (Acts 5:42). If you are interested in learning more about God and His precious Word and being better equipped to serve the Lord Jesus, the Benson Grove Bible Institute can fulfill that desire. It is a structured course that will allow you to accomplish these goals.
We are teaching the Bible in the format of Old Testament survey, New Testament survey, and Bible Doctrine. There are six semesters with sixteen classes per semester. The classes are held on Tuesday night at Benson Grove Baptist Church from 7-10 p.m. We have fully qualified professors, each having their Master’s degree in Biblical studies. We believe that anyone who enrolls and completes this course of study will have a very solid Bible education.
“Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed!” The goal of AWANA Clubs is to reach boys and girls for Christ and train them to serve Him. They meet on Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:30 p.m. The children have handbook time where they learn and understand bible verses, game time featuring individual and team competition, and council time with a message, singing and presentation of awards. The club meetings are open to all children ages 3-11!
A picture is worth a thousand words. Our Lord gave us this example as He used word pictures, parables and even people as examples as he taught. That is the basis of our drama ministry. We try to make the Bible come alive in a visual manner.
Our largest drama ministries of the year are judgement house and an Easter production that have involved as many as 135 cast members. We also have drama outreaches in worship services and in nursing homes, at youth revivals, and at softball & baseball tournament’s and other mission fields. For more information about having a drama team come to you or about our upcoming productions please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Men’s Fellowship meets on the 2nd Saturday morning of each month to have breakfast, prayer, and a hear a devotional message. The group takes up a love offering for community outreach and helps with community service projects like cleaning up after a natural disaster. The Men’s Fellowship is a real blessing!
The women of the Ladies Circle have a huge role in meeting the needs of the church and the community. They meet the 3rd Monday night of each month. By working together, the Ladies Circle provides meals when there is a death in the community, takes love offerings for the needy and provides supplies for the church. The group also arranges a church member harvest sale in the fall and prays and sends cards to those in need.
The Golden Seniors
The Golden Seniors are a Sunday School class for ages 60 and up, but they are also active outside of church once a month. As a group, they enjoy going out to eat, attending gospel sings and going on trips! Here they are eating at Brother Billy’s favorite place, Bojangles, before heading to an event. They have a great time together.
This wonderful group of youth range in age from 12-18. The Proteens meet on Sunday Nights for music and fun from 6:30-8:00pm, and have Bible Fellowship on Wednesday nights at 7:00 p.m. Once or twice a month, they enjoy going out to eat, bowling, etc. They have a youth choir and a drama team. The Proteens also have youth rallies and attend Christian summer camps.
We are precious in His sight! Your little one will enjoy staying in our cheerful, inviting nurseries. We have an infant nursery and a separate toddler nursery fully equipped with cubby holes for personal belongings, changing stations, lots of toys, books, snacks, bathrooms and plenty of space. We use a wireless paging system to notify you in case your child needs you during the service.
The music ministry at Benson Grove offers a variety of opportunities. Whether members chose to serve with their voice or with instrumental talents, there is always room for growth. We have a vision to broaden our music ministry with more solos, trios, quartets, and eventually an orchestra. Our choir is very enthusiastic and our mission is to honor God and be a blessing to others through music.
“Christians Actively Reaching Everyone (CARE).” If you are a member of the CARE ministry you would be committed to serving one Wednesday night a month by visiting the sick, witnessing, sending cards, making phone calls, providing community services, and praying. The CARE team provides nurture and support for the needs of our church and community members. There is always room for growth in this ministry. We are a church that cares!
The Highway Shepherd
“Go ye therefore into the highways.. (Matthew 22:9). The highway shepherd is a home missions project working to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to truckers and travelers across the United States and around the world. We place Compact Discs (CDs) of Gospel preaching and singing in truck and travel stops throughout the United States. The CDs are absolutely free to anyone. Dr. Cashwell receives letters and phone calls every week from people all over the country describing how the CDs have helped strengthen their Christian faith and brought them closer to God. Some listeners have even accepted Jesus Christ as their personal savior!
Benson Grove Baptist Church supports local and international missionaries including many who are called to the Philippines, Surinam-South America, Wales, and Costa Rica. We support a Philippines ministry in Charlotte, NC, the Baptist Missions to Forgotten People, a disabilities ministry in New England, a local radio show and a homeless ministry.
