SUYL - Mt View Baptist Church

Most of you know I LOVE reading Kelly's blog. This week is Show Us Your Life - Tell Us About Your Church. This is my Church. I am so glad I can call this my home Church where I belong and I am a member. I started attending this Church when Bart and I started dating in 2003. Let me first start off saying how thankful I am to be married to a good Christian man. Bart grew up in this Church and I am so excited to raise my boys in this Church. At first I was nervous going here. I was worried that the people would judge me or think less of me. Being a single mom in a small community where everyone knows everyone I thought they would not want to accept me. Boy was I wrong. After praying long and hard and watching God work in my life I stood in front of my Church in October 2008 and asked to join the Church!! I have been showed so much love from my Church Family and I am so thankful to be part of it! This is our pastor. He has been our pastor at Mt View for over a year and I really enjoy hearing him preach. He has a great love for God. He lives just right down the road from us with his wife Robin. They have a grandson that is just a few months older than Stephen. During the summer he would drop by and give us fresh corn from his garden. His wife Robin actually brought their grandson over to play with us one day.
One of the things I love most about Mt View is the youth. There is always something going on. This is a picture of the Valentines Party. We always have a devotion, eat and give out valentines.
This was the Easter egg hunt.
Bible school is also a favorite of mine!!
Halloween or Harvest Celebration
This was a Christmas Play. This play was AWESOME!! At the end this group came out and painted these pictures. It was silent except for the a song that was played. It was truly amazing to watch!!
There is so much to say about this church. The community involvement is another big thing. We recently started a Come and Dine community dinner. They do that the 2ND Thursday of every month from 5:30 till 7:00.


We have a Youth Revival at the end of February, a spring revival that is starting the 2ND week of April and a Fall revival that is in August.


The ladies meet once a month.


I feel like I am forgetting to mention something. This is a great Church. If you are in the Cleveland, GA area please stop and visit one Sunday morning. Sunday School starts at 10am and they usually start singing about 10:50 and service follows singing. Sunday night service is at 7. Wednesday is bible study and we also eat at 6pm and classes at 7. Please join us!!

  1. We're neighbors! I live in cleveland. I go to First Baptist of Helen, my brother is on staff there and so it was natural for me to go where he goes. I will say this: the Christian Community in White County is beyond anything I've ever seen. Disciple Now weekend is the highlight of my son's year - where a few local churches get together for a weekend of worship and teaching and service. I've found so much love and acceptance in our community. I love it here!

  2. I am actually Church of Christ, but I was born in Cleveland, GA. I have so many fond memories there. My Dad was the preacher for the Church of Christ there in Cleveland from maybe 1974ish to 1982ish. Thanks for sharing!!
