Our favorite place to meet is in our church building. We love to worship and praise God together!

Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:25
 
Our door is open for YOU -- come join us!
I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the LORD. Psalm 122:1
 
Our sanctuary is a special place for worship, praise, prayer and thanksgiving.
And let them make me a sanctuary; that I (God) may dwell among them. Exodus 25:8
 
We're ready to make you welcome here!
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. Psalm 95:6
 

Pastor Nathan Walter, a 4th-generation preacher, has a rich Christian heritage. In 1995, he received his preacher’s license. In 1997, he graduated from Penn View Bible Institute in Penns Creek, PA (PVBI), as a Ministerial major and began pastoring for the God’s Missionary Church conference. He and his wife, Lynnette, pastored a total of 12 1/2 years at two God's Missionary Churches in PA before coming to us in September 2011. We are eager to see what great things God will do in Bland through their ministry and leadership.

Pastor and Lynnette (Roberts) met while they were attending PVBI, and they married in 1995.

For a time, we did not have a pastor, and our parsonage was empty and quiet. We're so thankful that our parsonage is now the happy home of our pastor and his family!

We've been blessed not only with Pastor & Mrs. Walter, but also with their children: Stephanie, Rachelle, Rebecca, Susannah, and Darrin. We're delighted that God brought them to us!
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3
