There are many ministries available at Columbus Avenue Baptist Church. Each are specifically designed and geared to serve you and your family, and to help you find your place in the CABC family and in the Kingdom of God, as we seek to glorify Christ and know Him in a personal way.
Bible Study & Education
At Columbus Avenue, we believe Bible Study is at the root of an active and growing relationship with Jesus Christ, and that it is important to do that with others who identify with you and your family's place in life. No matter you age or place in life, there is a class for you.
Throughout the year we offer a variety of different discipleship courses. These may include Sunday evening, Wednesday evening, and weekday studies.
Here at CABC, we offer a place for everyone to learn to praise God through music and to lead others in worship. We invite you to find your place in our ministry of music as we strive together to worship God in spirit and in truth.
With a heavy emphasis on Sunday School, preschoolers, birth through five years of age, at Columbus Avenue are taught eternal truths about God and His Word as they enjoy concrete Bible learning activities. Parents of preschoolers are encouraged and strengthened through New and Expectant Parent conference, Preparing Your Preschooler For Worship, and other parenting conferences throughout the year.
The Columbus Avenue Children's Ministry exists to create an environment for faith in which boys and girls will be transformed into the spiritual champions that God created them to be. With Bible Study at its heart, our ministry provides Vacation Bible School, Children's Camps, Summer Activities, Children's Choirs, Missions Organizations, New Christians Classes, Children's Discipleship and many other special emphasis throughout the year.
Middle School and High School students, grades 7-12, are involved in our youth ministry. Throughout the year there are discipleship groups, Bonzais, Reunion, camp, Get a Grip weekend, camp-outs, and much more to involve students in an active relationship with Christ and others.
