Our Church is blessed to have so many children. They have Church on their level. They sing and they are taught a Bible Lesson. They also have a Craft Time. They assemble during the regular Morning worship service.
They are taught by Emily and Patty Perkins, Chrissy Wilson, Rachel Johnson, Beth Howard, Dana Mills, Kelly and Kaitlyn Cornett. They meet in the Fellowship Hall.
Sunday Evening, the smaller group is taught by Kelly Daniels, downstairs in the big Sunday School Room.
The Puppet Ministry is on hold at the present time, however, the puppet shows really make you laugh, and then, they really let you know that Jesus died for you in order that you may have everlasting life.
When they are active they travel to several different places, including day care centers, nursing homes and other Churches.
They have a message through the puppets that tells others about the love of God. They have an invitation after every show, allowing anyone to accept Jesus as their personal savior.
Their motto is “EVEN GOD CAN LOVE A DUMMY”
Our Youth group is under the direction of Bob and Kelly Cornett, Vicki Felosi and Steven Ray.
This is a great group of young people, they have a lot of fun. In the past they have participated in the associational youth rallies, holding the title for a long time, for having the most present. They’ve won first place in past Harlan County Christmas parades for Best Float. They have also won first place in the Loyall, Ky Christmas Parade for best Float, and they go on various trips, like Kentucky Kingdom, King’s Island, Christian Concerts, such as their recent ones were Casting Crowns and Newsboys Concerts and, they recently went to Jump Jam, an indoor trampoline place and the Nascar Speed Park with Go-Carts in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and of course trips around Harlan, the Martin's Fork Lake and the Hamrick Bowling Alley. They have had lock-ins, which was a lot of fun. Then around the holidays they bring out the best, they visit the nursing homes, and Hospitals, showing and sharing the love of Christ, giving of themselves to make someone happy during the holidays.
The youth group meets every Wednesday night, at 7:00 P.M. They have a Bible taught lesson and discussions, and play time.

HARLAN COUNTY CHRISTIAN OUTREACH
This group was formed some time ago, focusing on the addicted, their families, and our community, as an outreach for those struggling with the problems of alcohol, drug, parent, spouse, or sexual abuse. This group’s sole purpose and mission was to let those who are addicted know that they can “break free” from the chains that hold them, through the compassion and healing that only comes from Jesus Christ. Their mission also, with the uniting of all churches in Harlan County, is to clean up and rid our county, one community at time, of drugs and alcohol abuse. Anyone and everyone are welcome to attend our meetings. However, this group is currently on hold.
An added feature to our youth activities is a basketball team. They practice or play each other every Wednesday Night on the new and improved basketball court after Youth Group. They look forward to playing other teams or youth groups from other churches. With the help and work of the church, they now have a larger (half) court, with in-ground goals and net enclosures. They're ready to play!
