We have Sunday School for all ages, newborn to adult. Come and join us in learning more about God's Word.
We have people who are excited about teaching new believers the Word of God. There is a regular "New Believer" class which meets at 5:00pm on Sunday evenings, and lasts eight (8) weeks to help ground the New Believer in the basics of God's Word. Then for those who still hunger for more, there are individuals and couples who are prepared to take the New Believer even farther in a year long, one on one, Bible Study/Christian Training course that will really help one to get into a closer walk and relationship with the Lord.
The PR2BC Sanctuary Choir assists in leading our worship during the worship services and also presents special programs throughout the year.
PR2BC owns and operates 2 church vans with caring, qualified persons to give people (young and old) the opportunity to come and worship with us. The church vans run for all regular services. PR2BC has been involved with Bus Ministry in Alba-Golden since the 1970’s. In 2008, this ministry was reactivated with the purchase of a new church van. A year later another van was added, with two bus routes. One Golden route and one Alba route. We would love to invite you and/or your children to ride the bus this Sunday. We have a safe, friendly, welcoming atmosphere for all ages! What do I need to do for my child to make use of the PR2BC bus ministry?
All you have to do is help your child to get up and get ready to be picked up by our van on Sunday morning.
Our bus workers will pick your child up and get them safely to Pilgrim Rest #2 Baptist Church, for services.
The child will be helped back on the bus and driven back to your home safely.
You will be contacted every Saturday for just a few minutes to make sure that your child will be riding the bus the following Sunday. If no one is home, they may leave a message to remind you that the bus is coming the next day. Our desire is to see your entire family in church. Sometimes Mom & Dad can’t go for one reason or another. But…what about the children? Would you please let them ride our van to church? Jesus said, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 19:14
Please contact us at (903)768-2653, if you need a ride to church or more information. We want you to attend and will be happy to pick you up for services and return you home afterward.
