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.

On the 3rd & 4th Sundays 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.
Our youth, Grades 6-12, meets on Wednesday nights from 6:30-8pm for Bible Study and fellowship. Throughout the year the youth participate in various mission projects, conferences, and other fun trips. Currently, Pastor Derrick is leading the Wednesday night group.
