This is our building. We are the church!

First things first...

Please join us on Sunday morning:

10:00 to 10:40 a.m.—
Sunday School in our Community Building, which is next to the sanctuary on Buckhorn Lane.

11:00 to Noon—
Worship service, also in the Community Building. There is no heat in the sanctuary, so we will worship next door until the first Sunday in June.


The mission of our church is to keep faith

  • Our congregation keeps faith in three ways:

  • First, we possess and retain faith in Jesus Christ, who is Lord of the Church and savior of its individual members.

  • Second, we keep "the faith" preserving through successive generations those truth that come to us through the grace of the Holy Spirit as we read scripture, study our confessions, teach our children, and gather in Christ's name to seek his will for us.

  • Finally, we keep faith with those who have gone before us, beginning with Stephen and other martyrs of antiquity, but looking with special love and veneration to those who preceded us here in eastern Kentucky, carrying God's word to scattered settlers, gathering congregations into public witness, and building schools and cooperative communities before government subsidies existed. The Buckhorn School, Buckhorn Medical Clinic, and the Buckhorn Children's Center have their roots in our church, and we retain special obligations to all three.
