Amelia Baptist Church has been committed to the Great Commission since its founding in 1914. Over the past century, ABC has sought to equip believers in the faith so that their love for Christ and for others would grow. One of the primary ways that ABC has sought to equip its members is through the faithful teaching of God's Word. Below you will find several ways that Amelia Baptist seeks to educate its people for the purpose of godliness and gospel advancement.

Mission Friends & Jr. Church
On the 2nd Sunday of each month, our children leave the worship service after the offering to participate in what we call "Mission Friends". Mission Friends is a time where children ages 4 through 5th grade learn about worldwide missions through various activities, crafts, and biblical truth.
On the 3rd, 4th, and occasional 5th Sunday of the month, our children have the opportunity to participate in "Junior Church" immediately following the offering in the worship service. Junior Church is a time where children ages 4 through 5th grade can worship together in song, prayer, bible study, and various activities. (**Currently Jr. Church is on hold until we can secure a leader for this ministry**)
Our youth, Grades 6-12, meets on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of every month at 5 PM for Bible Study and fellowship. They participate in various mission projects, conferences, and other fun trips during the year. Currently, Steven & Jody Hall are the youth leaders for ABC Youth.
