About US

As the oldest church in Clinton, dating back to 1831, we are continuing to build a committed and supportive community of followers of Jesus Christ. We seek to worship God, to nurture God’s people, and to care for and serve each of those in need in ways that are both multi-cultural and multi-generational. We welcome those who are encountering God for the first time as well as those who are seeking a new church home.

Thanks for visiting our site and please plan to visit us in person soon!

The Connection Service:

Our more casual service is called the Connection.  It takes place in the fellowship/worship center on the Mt Salus side of the campus.  Featuring modern music and a comfortable and casual style of worship, it is a place where anyone can feel at ease.  The service is led by Pastor Rev. Dr. Ricky James and Worship Leader Tom Edwards.

The Youth Lead Service:

6:00 – 8:00pm:  Youth Sunday Night Service (gym)

This is our large-group time for 7th-12th graders! We have a mix of crazy fun and fantastic worship to just being flat out silly… And there’s always food! Every time we meet our hope is to create an atmosphere that is unique and attractive to Jr High and High Schoolers and to help students fall in love with Jesus! Led by Hunter Lacefield and Tom Edwards
