Bible Study

We would also like to invite you to one of our Sunday School classes at 9:30 AM on Sunday mornings prior to morning worship. There are classes for ALL AGES! There are Bible studies for adults on Wednesday nights at Church and on FaceBook. See the calendar or call for more information!

Sermons

We do understand that not everyone can make every week's service. Many have plans or are not feeling well enough to attend. We post the entire service online each week so you can listen to the praise and the Pastor's message from the safety and convenience of your home at your convenience.

Events

We are a very busy fellowship of Christians. We have many different programs and events throughout the year that we would love you to be a part of. There are community service projects, mission outreach, and study and fellowship for all ages. Everyone is welcome to attend and participate.

Music

At the Westport Baptist Church we are very proud of our Choir, Orchestra, Praise group and much more! We encourage everyone, both children and adults to participate and worship the Lord. If you play an instrument our Orchestra may be perfect for you. There rae many ways to worship...music is one of them!

Family Clothes Closet
The Clothes Closet is this week.  We’ll be needing lots of volunteers to help with this ministry.  We will need help setting up, putting out clothes, keeping clothes folded and much more.  Any time you can spare will be appreciated.  If you would like to donate food for the workers, that would be great too.  If you have any questions, please contact Gretchen Armand at 812-767-2362.

Women’s Bible Study
In this 7-session study on the Book of Haggai, learn to walk confidently in your calling, stay motivated despite opposition, and courageously invest your life in God’s purposes, trusting Him for results you may never see in this lifetime. Please be in prayer about joining us for this inspiring Bible study. Hopefully, your schedule will allow you to attend. Email Janet at janetteitsort@comcast.net if you plan to attend or sign-up on the sheet in the foyer. I need the count so I can order books asap.  The cost of the book is $15.    We will be wearing masks and social distancing.  Thanks, Janet.
