Church Music Program

It is so easy to take our Music Program for granted, so please tell our Music Directors (Monte and Carol Shuck), the Organist/Pianist, and the Choir members a special ‘Thank You’ if you enjoy their work.

The church’s members and friends are in-vited to join the choir, first and foremost, because they love to sing. The goal is not to be a performance, but to add to the worship service. Our pastor is very involved in helping to select hymns that will add to the message.

Jeanette West has been a faithful pianist/organist for our congregation, and she chose to become a member of this church when she became our full time player in 2011. She plans the music during the prelude, offertory, and postlude.


It is an inspiration to watch our music program partici-pate in our services with joy, love, and fun. God has truly blessed us with this program!

The Seekers Class

      The Seekers is the co-ed (and singles) adult Bible Class in our church.  We meet on Sunday mornings (execpt for our Summer break) at 9:00 a.m. to discuss a topic and possibly view the video segment tied to the lesson.

      The class is an opportunity for the adults of our church to increase their Biblical literacy, ask questions, ponder other’s points of view and get to know their fellow church members.

      The class meets from September through May. Topics change during the year and may be based on a Book of the Bible or a current topic or popular book.   We welcome everyone to our fellowship.  Coffee is always served most Sundays include a snack.  Please join us!

The Lord's Supper

The Lord’s Supper is celebrated on the first Sunday of every month. This is not a ritual, but rather a sacrament that sets aside special time to remember Christ’s sacrifice of his life, so that we might live!  Carl calls us to confess our sins and repent of those actions that lead us away from our Christian faith, and to celebrate the certainty that God is always listening and ready to receive us back as His children.

The Benevolence Program

     The Benevolence committee met quarterly in 2014 with seven members of the church reviewing the needs of local, community, and international agencies. Our commitment to return twenty-five percent of our blessings received from the grace and mercy of our Father was met as we carefully considered the needs of those less fortunate.

The Salado Food Pantry received a twice-monthly giving of bread, as well as a financial contribution and the proceeds of our Giving Basket. In addition to the agencies listed, we supported the First Baptist church's Fall Festival, and the Rotary Club's flag program.

Samaritan's Purse is a  world-wide Christian agency that provides critically needed humanitarian assistance from treating Ebola patients to providing food, medical supplies and support, water wells, and water purification systems-from a straw that purifies water as it is taken in to sophisticated sytems that provide water for villages.

Tuesday Men@Prayer

  The Men’s Prayer Breakfast is held each Tuesday.  The breakfast starts at about 7:45 AM. Prayer requests and prayers start at 8:00. The last half hour is devoted to a discussion topic. We conclude before 9:00.  All men of the church (and other churches) are invited to attend.

   The Men’s Prayer Breakfast is averaging 10 men per week.  As we move into 2015, we would like to expand the size of the group.   Please come check us out if you are not yet a regular.
