  • Read Through the Bible in a Year

    We have added a read through the Bible in a year to this website. If you want to try it, go to  http://www.crainvillebaptistchurch.org/page/calendar 

    It is on the left side bar (column) of the Calendar module (in the title line above.)  You will need to download a site if you want to be able to just click on the verse and have your computer bring it up for you.  You also can choose the version of the Bible you like for the text to be displayed.  Or, you can look up the reading in your own Bible.


  • From the Pulpit Committee

    We have been working hard on getting the Church profile done.

    A copy was sent to Muriel Johnson (Area Minister) for her approval.  We have heard back from her.  She stated that "This is a great draft of your Church profile--SERIOUSLY!!!!  I think you are well on your way to the next step."  She plans to meet with the committee in mid-July or early August.  The committee asks that you continue to be in prayer for them and the next person to lead us at Crainville Baptist Church.

    Frank Hutchison--Pulpit Committee co-chairperson
