Children’s ministry is a great priority to us at Central Baptist Church. We desire to provide the children of Ponca City and the surrounding communities with programs and activities that are both enjoyable and educational.
We have children’s Sunday School classes that meet every Sunday morning at 9:30 am, followed by a children’s church service at 10:30 am. Every summer, we attend a camp for children ages 9 through the 6th grade, as well as host an unforgettable and imaginative Vacation Bible School. Be sure and check our church calendar for upcoming children’s events.
During the School year, we host an exciting ministry called King’s Character every Wednesday from 6:45 pm to 8:15 pm. Every night includes entertaining games, challenging lessons, and encouraging group times where the children are encouraged to memorize scripture, study God’s word, and perform acts of Christian service. If you would like more information about this program, you may contact our church offices.
It is our desire to reach lost young people with the truth of the gospel and to work alongside parents in training young people to love and serve the Lord with all of their hearts.
We certainly hope to have fun, establish long-lasting friendships, and give teens a safe and clean alternative to secular activities and entertainment. However, we will never sacrifice personal holiness or Biblical separation. Every activity and program that we provide for teenagers is fun and often unforgettable, but most importantly, everything we do revolves around God and His Word.
We regularly host activities every month as well as attend several conferences and camps throughout the year. One of our most common activities is our game and pizza night that takes place immediately following the first Sunday night service of every month in our Family Life Center. We also host a Wednesday night program during the school year from 6:45 pm-8:15 pm where we enjoy unforgettable, zany games, hear Biblical messages on topics important to teenagers, and participate in small group times where we encourage one another to draw closer to our Lord.
Here at Central Baptist Church, we believe in Godly masculinity. This is why we established the MEN-istry. It is a time of fellowship where men and boys are given the opportunity to eat good food, pray, learn from God’s Word, and occasionally enjoy sports and other entertainment in an atmosphere that pleases God and encourages Biblical manhood.
Reformers Unanimous is a CHRIST-centered recovery program that directs the intemperate back to God's support group, the local church. The local RU group meets at Central Baptist Church, 1732 E. Coleman Rd., Ponca City, OK, on Friday evenings at 7:00 pm. Transportation and child care are available. For more information contact Director Mike Gammill at 580-763-4193 or call the Addiction Helpline at 866-733-6768.
"Keenagers" is a fellowship for adults ages 50 and older. We regularly host fellowships, dinners, and outings to various attractions around Oklahoma and southern Kansas. Be sure and check out our church calendar for the next Keenagers event.
The purpose of our music ministry is to present songs that glorify our God and affect the hearts and lives of every individual who attends our services. Our intention is not to put on a concert, but to exalt our Savior through worship in song.
Our adult choir sings regularly every Sunday, and performs special musical presentations during Easter and Christmas. The adult choir is open to all saved and baptized teen and adult members of Central Baptist Church.
Due to the great value and personal impact we believe music ministry holds in the life of a believer, we desire to involve children in this area of ministry as well. Our church offers children’s choirs for kids beginning at age 3 through the 6th grade.
Every Sunday and Wednesday night, we provide bus and van transportation for individuals in Ponca City and the surrounding areas for those who desire to attend our services but lack transportation. This gives individuals who would otherwise be unable to attend an opportunity to fellowship with believers, experience the love of Christ, and hear God’s Word preached. If you or someone you know would like a ride to any of our services, please call our church office at 580-765-5840.
FAITH BIBLE INSTITUTE
Central Baptist Church maintains an extension campus of Faith Bible Institute, a teaching ministry of the Rowland Road Baptist Church in Monroe, LA.
FBI is a Bible College course of study for every Christian. Students will study chronologically through the entire Bible and systematically through every major doctrine. FBI combines solid Bible teaching with an interactive DVD video format, utilizing student workbooks, charts, 3D maps and images to produce an engaging learning experience.
FBI was started in 1985 by the Rowland Road Baptist Church in Monroe, LA, and is still administered by the same. Bro. John Yates is Senior Pastor at Rowland Road and the instructor for all classes. FBI has trained over 41,000 students since the school was founded!
The FBI program provides a three-year course of study (six semesters, identified by Roman numerals I through VI), which will take the student through every book in the Bible and several theology classes. Students may start at any semester and stop with any semester... and then pick back up as their schedule allows. There is a reasonable enrollment fee to cover your materials and spouses are half-price. Textbooks are the Holy Bible (KJV), almost 2000 pages of student notes prepared by FBI and the 1248-page Willmington's Guide to the Bible. FBI also provides summer elective classes. You do not have to be enrolled in FBI to take the summer electives, however you must still register and pay the summer tuition costs. Classes may be taken for college credit or audited (no testing).
Currently FBI meets on Monday night with the same class retaught again on Thursday night. You choose the night that best fits your schedule.
CBC's Faith Bible Institute Director is Randy Tyner. For more information about the class or for enrollment instructions please review the FBI website at...
