How Do I Meet People?
Coronado Baptist Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for family. Whether you are a two-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a teenager, a soldier, a busy mom, a college student, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at Coronado Baptist Church.
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than those in larger groups. For that reason, Coronado Baptist Church has Bible studies and Sunday School classes designed to help you in your Spiritual Growth. These are held throughout the week and on Saturday evening and Sunday mornings. The size of the groups vary based on the nature of the study and age group.
Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes and children’s church based on their age. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Teachers are carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction.
Our Student Ministries encompasses three aspects of student life at CBC. Outbreak, our Jr. High Ministry is led by Steven Lewis. SHM (Sr. High) and CAM (College-age Ministry) are lead by Student Ministries pastor, Murray Van Gundy. C.A.M provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career-aged young people.
Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. Our Singles Ministry is led by Dan Dodge, and is comprised of two groups: Single Focus (ages 23-35) and The Next Generation (ages 35+). Both of these groups are very active, meeting each weekend for Bible study at the church, and also throughout the week for various planned and spur-of-the-moment get-togethers at the church, at each other’s homes, or at various venues around town. Single-specific mission trips are planned once or twice yearly; local mission and evangelistic opportunities are available throughout the year.
Several Bible studies, discipleship groups, a women’s retreat, conferences, and events are offered throughout the year to give the ladies in our church family special times of interaction, fellowship, and spiritual growth. There are also many opportunities to serve in various volunteer capacities throughout the year on a one-time or on-going weekly or monthly basis. Contact Jackie Miller, Women’s Ministry Coordinator, at Women’s Ministry or (915) 526-7395.
Accountability among men is an act of integrity. CBC’s Men’s Ministry is designed to protect, encourage, and develop men of all ages, single and married. The men of CBC meet at least three times a year, with over 100 men in attendance, to grow together in the knowledge of God’s Word. These events include Men’s Rally, Men’s Retreat, Father/Son or Daughter Banquet, etc. For more information, contact Dan Dodge, (915) 329-0212.
Men’s / Women’s / Student Discipleship
Discipleship groups are on-going throughout the year as groups of three or four are formed among the men / women of CBC. We model these groups after Jesus’ example. Jesus taught His disciples by investing in their lives. He lived out His life and ministry before them, setting the pattern for His followers to learn how to encourage and equip future generations. CBC’s discipleship groups meet together on or off campus as their schedules allow and keep in touch by email or phone. If interested in taking this step in your journey of faith, please contact any of the following for this opportunity: Ron Acton, Nora Karam, or Murray Van Gundy.
Once you get past sixty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, these groups within our church provide refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction. Two classes (Challengers and Faith Class), in which you can continue in your faith journey and fellowship with other believers, are available for this age. They meet on Sunday at 8:00 a.m. in the Osborn Rm. in the Administrative Office Building. They also regularly meet outside of class for lunch and various activities. If interested in more information, please contact Jeanne Sanderson, (915) 584-4357, or Carolyn Hauser, (915) 584-1626.
