What to Expect

Cedar Grove Baptist Church is a biblically functioning community where you will encounter truth and love in a casual setting. Over the years at CGBC, many people have experienced ways to seek and follow God and change the path of their lives. During the week, we use our gym for the recreation portion of Wednesday night children classes when the weather is less than desirable.

Where to go

We have our Sunday worship services in the ARK (our gym). Although it isn’t your traditional sanctuary, it is fully functional. During the week, we use our gym for Game Time during our AWANA program. From November to February, the gym is used for UPWARD basketball practice (while the Student Center is used for UPWARD cheerleading practice) during the week. On Saturdays hundreds of children and their families come and watch the games in ARK. We try to make the most of the blessings God has given us!

Our children’s classes are all located in the Student Center.

What will take place on Sunday mornings

Beginning at 9:45am, we offer Sunday School classes for every age, and most every stage of life. From Nursery to Adult classes, there is something for everyone. All adult classes are held in the ARK, and all children’s classes are located in the Student Center. Sunday School classes are the best place to make deep connections with other church members. These classes serve as a great growing place, an environment in which you can open up, develop lasting friendships, and have a great time.

Each Sunday Morning Worship Service begins at 11am and lasts about an hour and fifteen minutes. There’s worship music, videos, and practical biblical preaching. Pastor Darrell Taylor provides transformational preaching that applies to your everyday life.

For the kiddos on Sundays

Bring your children to the Student Center where you will find a Sunday School class for all ages. If your children are in the 4th Grade or younger then we have Wee Worship and Junior Church during the morning service. The Wee Worship program is for children Age 2 through Kindergarten and Junior Church is for 1st through 4th graders. The youth also have their Sunday School classes in the Student Center as well.

What about Sunday nights

On Sunday nights we meet at 6 pm for a time of worship and great teaching from Pastor Taylor. We have a time of thanksgiving and praise to acknowledge what God has been doing during our lives that week.

On Wednesdays

We love to come together on Wednesdays, as a time to refocus, fellowship, and to hear some great teaching.

Who else will be there

There are married couples, singles, young people, older people, professionals, laborers, and stay-at-home moms who come to CGBC every week. Each has a unique life story, just like you do. No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you’re welcome to come and check out what God is doing out in Stamping Ground and in Scott County.

Some Tips For Your Visit

  • Come As You Are

No matter where you are on your spiritual journey, you are always

welcome.

  • What To Wear

Dress casually. Most folks do. Be comfortable. From jeans to suits,

dressy to casual, we just want you to come.

  • No Expectations

If you’re a first-time visitor or just checking out CGBC, you won’t be

expected to participate in our weekly offering. Be our guest.

Plan of Salvation

FAITH

F is for FORGIVENESS

God’s forgiveness is in Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross 2000 years ago. We cannot have eternal life and heaven without God’s forgiveness. The Bible says

“In Him [meaning Jesus] we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins” – Ephesians 1:7a.

A is for AVAILABLE

God’s forgiveness is available for all. The Bible says

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life” –

John 3:16.

Just like it says in the verse, whoever believes in Jesus will have eternal life. God’s forgiveness is available but not automatic. The Bible says

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven” – Matthew 7:21.

It’s not just the words we speak, but we have to believe it in our hearts.

I is for IMPOSSIBLE

It is impossible for God to allow sin into heaven. What does the word SIN mean? There are two kinds of sin. One is when we do something God doesn’t want us to do, and the other is when we do not do what God wants us to do. God has many characteristics but there are two that standout.

  • GOD IS LOVE

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” –

John 3:16.

God loved us so much that he sent his only son to die for our sins to provide a way to heaven.

  • GOD IS JUST

“For judgment is without mercy” – James 2:13.

God has to judge us for our sins.

  • The Bible also teaches that MAN IS SINFUL

“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” – Romans 3:23.

Question: But how can a sinful person enter heaven, where God allows no sin? This question will be answered in the next letter.

T is for TURN

Turn means repent.

The Bible teaches that we need to turn away from sin and self. Turn away from always wanting to be in control. In the Bible, Jesus said,

“But unless you repent you will all likewise perish” – Luke 13:3.

But the Bible’s teaching does not stop there. Jesus said,

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No on comes to the father except through Me.” – John 14:6.

The Bible goes on to tell us that

“Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the

Scriptures” – 1 Corinthians 15:3-4.

Here is the greatest news of all. The Bible says

“If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’ and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. With

the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation.” – Romans 10:9-10.

What happens if a person is willing to repent of their sins and confess Christ?

H is for HEAVEN

Heaven is a place where we will live with God forever.

“If I go away and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; so that where I am, there you may be also” – John

14:3.

Eternal life begins now with Jesus.

“I have come that they may have life and have it in abundance” – John 10:10.

H also can stand for HOW

How can a person have God’s forgiveness, eternal life, and heaven?

By trusting Jesus as your Savior and Lord.
