Christian Men’s Fellowship

The CMF provides a great opportunity for the men of the church to get together each month to enjoy a delicious supper and wonderful fellowship in a very informal atmosphere. All men are welcome to join with the group in Fellowship Hall on the first Wednesday evening of the month. Meetings begin at 6:30pm with a full meal, followed by devotional and a business meeting. Meals are prepared by CMF members on a volunteer basis (usually in groups of three), and the results are some seriously good food. There is a suggested donation of $4.00 per person. 

But the CMF is much more than just a social group. The CMF provides an important Christian outreach effort by undertaking projects to help people in the church and the community who are facing various hardships. Members regularly bring to the attention of the group particular situations where the CMF could be of help. Such help can range from physical labor to financial assistance. In a very real sense, these men are the “hands” of the church, and all men of the church are encouraged to join them.

Scotty’s Mens Breakfast

A group of men of the church gather in the fellowship hall at 6:45am every Thursday morning for a hearty breakfast and great fellowship. Some members of the group prepare the food, which includes the full range of breakfast fare: eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, grits, cheese biscuits, toast, juice, coffee, and sometimes additional items. Other members take care of the kitchen clean-up. All men are encouraged to join the group and participate in this entertaining event. A donation of $4.00 is suggested.

 The meal is followed by a short devotional time, which often leads to an interesting discussion. The last Thursday of each month features a more in-depth discussion of a specially selected topic.

Christian Women’s Fellowship

The CWF is open to all women of the Bath Christian Church. Meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday night of the month following family night at 7:30pm in the church fellowship hall. In keeping with the church’s mission, the women provide support for the congregation by providing meals following illness or surgery and bereavement meals. In addition to support for the National Disciples of Christ organization, love offerings and contributions for community and local agency needs are made throughout the year. A Celebration of Women banquet is held in the spring to recognize and celebrate all women of the church regardless of age. An annual Bazaar is held in November which includes breakfast and lunch, baked goods, canned goods, frozen casseroles, handmade crafts as well as a yard sale. The bazaar is a great time for collaboration and fellowship for everyone within the church as well as the community. All women of the church are encouraged to attend and get involved for the greater spiritual growth and enrichment.

Vacation Bible School

Bath Christian Church hosted its annual VBS August 13-15. The theme was Camp Courage. Each evening began with a delicious meal and introduction about the night’s activities and study. The campers learned Courage, Faith and Forgiveness through a short lesson, music, crafts and an inspirational video from Kid President.

The campers performed 3 songs that they had learned for the congregation the Sunday following the end of VBS.

Family Night

Family Night is held every 2nd and 4th Wednesday night of the month, and it is both a time for fellowship and fun. We have 6 team groups that take turns preparing the meals and they are responsible for serving the meal and presenting a short devotion. Following the devotion we have a time to remember Church members, family, friends, and community members who are in need of prayer.

Sunday School

Bath Christian Church provides Sunday School classes every Sunday starting at ages 5 through adult. We have 2 adult classes. Please join us for great fellowship and the teaching of God’s word.
