The motive for all we do is love. The center of what we do is worship. We love because he first
loved us, so being regularly reminded of God's love demonstrated in the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ is our starting place. This good news is the central message of the Bible, and it's what
you'll hear taught in our worship services every week, from every part of the Bible, and in all its richness and relevance to our lives. It is also the central message of the Scriptural songs of
praise (the Psalms) we sing and all the acts of worship in which we participate. Furthermore, because we are absolutely dependent on God for everything good in our lives, we strive to be a
people who pray together regularly, on Sundays and throughout the week.
Around the center point of worship and prayer, we try to provide lots of opportunities for learning. Currently, we have Church School for adults as well as children, which meets after Morning Worship. We also have Bible studies in both nearby Oneonta and Walton. We are eager to provide opportunities to learn about the Christian faith to anyone interested, at any age, and from any walk of life.
We don't want merely to learn information, however. The truth presented in the Bible is something that demands all our heart, soul, mind, and
strength. We seek to be people who actively practice the truth in love with heart, head, and hands. We find ways to serve and meet each others needs, grieving with those who grieve, and
celebrating with those who rejoice. We seek to demonstrate Jesus' mercy to our community and beyond, giving of our time and resource to the needs of others through the Walton Ministerial
Association's Food Bank, our Women's Missionary Fellowship (WMF), and other endeavors. One thing we love to share together is our monthly "Fellowship Meal", usually held on the second Sunday of
each month after Morning Worship. If you visit then, plan to stay and share a meal with us – God has given us plenty to share!
