Because Your Family Matters
Before government, before country, before communities, and before the church, God created the family. Your family may include a spouse, children, or maybe just you. No matter the size or season, Smithville Brethren Church wants to help you intentionally pursue following Jesus Christ.
We currently host year-round classes for every age in the church, from a fully-staffed nursery to an adult class for the senior, senior saints. Our seven adult classes follow a variety of formats - some topical, some discussion, some primarily prayer, and some following the lectionary. And because parents are the primary disciplers in the home, children's classes us the D6 EveryDay Curriculum.
Geared for students ages 5 through 5th grade, Friends' Club joins fun, faith, and friends on. Many of the events are service-oriented, and students and friends can attend as schedules permit.
Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is a no-cost, Monday-through-Thursday special event for students ages five through fifth grade featuring Bible stories, crafts, games, music, snacks, and science lessons around a yearly theme. Parents, siblings, and grandparents of students are invited to join their student on Thursday night for an indoor picnic.
