Hear from other BattleCreek Church members who have found their purpose in the church.

“I love watching these kids grow emotionally and spiritually throughout the years. By the time they ‘graduate’ from preschool, they know basic biblical truths. But my favorite part is when a kid being dropped off, they see me and immediately light up and say, ‘Mr. Jake! Mr. Jake!’ I know that I get to play no small role in each these kids’ lives, helping them fall in love with church and meet the real Jesus.”

Jake Grand, BattleCreek Kids Dream Team

“The best part about serving on the production team is the community between all of us on the team and the worship band, working together to encourage and uplift the church in worship. If you’re thinking about serving, just do it! Being connected to and serving the church is just as important as attending, life is better together!”

– Austin Rider, BattleCreek Production Dream Team
