Where Would I Fit In?

With adult Bible Classes for married couples, single adults, newlyweds, college students, etc.; Sunday School Classes for children and teenagers; and special-needs classes for the deaf, there is a place for you!

Sunday Bible Classes – 10:00 AM

During this time adults have a few classes to choose from. Since you may be new, The New Beginnings Class would be a great place to start. The adult classes vary in size and focus.Adult Sunday School Classes meet from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., right before the main preaching service. This is the perfect opportunity for you and your family to meet other fellow believers and also learn great Bible truths.


What About My Child(ren)?

We provide first-class nurseries and child-care for your newborn or baby, where they will be kept safe and well supervised. Our nursery staff is well-trained and experienced; we are good at what we do.Elementary and Teen Sunday School Classes are also available for children two years old through 12th grade. These classes give them an opportunity to grow spiritually and learn vital biblical truths at a young age.


Where do I Park?

Ample and convenient parking is available for all visitors.


What Should I Wear?

There is no strict dress code to attend our public services, but in case you’re wondering, a majority of our church members wear their “Sunday Best”—the men in a dress shirt and dress slacks, typically with a tie, and the women in modest dress.

Sunday Morning and Evening Services – 11:00 AM and 6:30 PM

Every Sunday morning and Sunday evening, the services are held in the Church with Pastor Mike Dinges. As you walk in, a friendly usher will greet you and be available to help you find a seat and answer any questions you may have.

We believe in having a church service with uplifting hymns and spiritual songs that will stir and inspire you, prayer, and practical preaching of the Word of God from Pastor Dinges.

Singing and Special Music

Every service gives you an opportunity to join us in singing hymns and spiritual songs. Each pew provides song books for you to use, which are available in the song book racks located behind every pew.



We are a church that believes in prayer. Throughout the service prayers are led by different men. Some of these prayers deal with the needs and requests of our church family and friends, while others simply praise and thank God for His goodness and faithfulness.



We consider the preaching of the Word of God to be the best and the most important time of the service. I Corinthians 1:21 reads, “…it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” We believe that the best help you can get in any struggle of life is from the Bible and that preaching is that help.



At the end of the preaching, Pastor Dinges will ask everyone to stand and will give an invitation. This is a time for many to respond and make a life-changing decision by walking down the aisle and praying at the altar. A decision may be to trust Jesus Christ as personal Saviour or to become a better Christian. Whatever your decision may be, the altar is open to you to join the hundreds who will make decisions.If you would like someone to pray for you or would like to make your decision public, men from our pastoral staff will be by the altar to pray with you and help you.



After the invitation is given, we have a baptism time at the end of every Sunday service. Those who have trusted Jesus Christ are baptized by immersion, making it as easy as possible to be baptized immediately after you get saved. However, we do not believe you can be saved by baptism.People get baptized every Sunday here at Peoples Baptist Church. If you would like to be baptized, make your way to the altar, and men from our pastoral staff will be available to assist you.

Wednesday Evening Bible Study – 7:30 PM

The Wednesday evening Bible study takes place every week at 7:30pm.  This is a time during the week when the church family gathers to listen and be taught practical, relevant truths from the Bible taught by Pastor Dinges. You will learn truths that will help you in the areas of prayer, marriage, child rearing, relationships, and more!
