Description:
In a day when many churches are moving away from Biblical values, Community strives to remain loyal to the Word of God. From the preaching of the Scriptures to the music, we seek to honor our risen Lord. You will find Community to be a place of friendliness toward men and faithfulness toward Christ – a unique combination today.

Many churches today minimize the importance of beliefs, but Community is quite different. We stand firmly on God’s Word as the foundation of our faith and practice. You’ll notice an abundance of scripture references in our Statement of Faith. As a fundamental Baptist Church, Bible preaching and teaching are central to our ministry.

What you believe is vitally important! Your beliefs concerning Jesus Christ determine how you live on earth and where you will spend eternity. God’s Way of Salvation tells how you can come to know Christ as your personal Savior.

Description:
Fellowship Baptist Church began over seventy-five years ago in a tent meeting where a group of believers burdened to reach lost souls for Christ began what came to be known as the Belleville Community Mission. Out of this humble beginning grew a church dedicated to glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ by winning and discipling the lost through prayerful, Spirit filled preaching and teaching of the Word of God. Today, that ministry continues with new and heartfelt dedication to the needs of twenty-first century men, women and children, and also with the same fervor and dedication to the Lord and His Word held by its pioneer founders.

Make yourself at home and look around all you would like. We have much to share with you in words, preaching, pictures and materials that will encourage you, your family and your friends in the things of the Lord. And when you are finished, let us hear from you, or better yet, come and see us at Fellowship!

Description:
Good news. But not just good news, extremely good news. That’s what the Gospel is. It’s a message of how God loves us completely independent from what we do, how we act, or how hard we try. “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.” (Ephesians 2:8). Not one of us is worthy of salvation, but God in His goodness gave it to us as a gift, and all we have to do is receive it. In its simplest form; that’s the Gospel. No matter where we are, whether we’re sick, confused, hurt, tired, young, or old, the Gospel is extremely good news. Jesus said, “I come to give you life, and life to the full.” And we believe that’s what you’ll experience at Oasis Christian Fellowship of Granger—a life full of healing, love, comfort, freedom, and most of all, true relationship with a loving God. The most we have to offer is HIM. So if He is what you’re looking for, then we are a place you can discover Him.

We are located straight down Ironwood, which runs north-south just east of campus, about a 12-minute drive from campus.

Description
Hilltop Lutheran Church welcomes people wherever they are – conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat, long-time Christian or someone who questions God, gay or straight. We figure that Jesus warmly welcomed people, and that’s what we try to do. And the various gifts that people bring with them help us in our growth in the spiritual life. In many ways, we’re a bunch of pilgrims who come together to be strengthened by God’s word, holy communion, and each other.

We don’t have a lot of programs and activities throughout the week; rather, we are united by our worship and by a fairly strong tradition of helping others at different times throughout the year, whether it’s cooking for a local mission, giving food to a food pantry, or having a party with gifts for people in our community who are developmentally disabled.

Over the years, we have had quite a few students and faculty come to our church, and we would love to welcome you. If you need a ride, let us know.

Services
During the academic year, we have three worship services. The service with the largest number of people is at 10:30 on Sunday mornings, and, at this service, we have music that is accompanied by a very nice organ. We have other services on Saturday at 5:30 and Sunday at 8:15 which are abbreviated and non-musical.

We celebrate holy communion at every service every week, and every person is welcomed to commune.

Our Bible Journey’s Sunday School program is organized into five workshops: games/computer, storytelling, drama, arts, and cinema. Children rotate among the classrooms studying the story or concept from the Bible using different methods. Our music program utilizes a beautifully refurbished pipe organ and a grand piano in the sanctuary. The adult Chancel Choir sings each week, using a variety of music styles. Our Handbell Choir performs monthly, as do our two children’s choirs. Sunnyside is active in our community through the Northeast Neighborhood Center, Advocacy Center, Habitat for Humanity, Center for the Homeless, Dismas House, and Hope Rescue Mission.
