Wallace says
congregation
is growing

“We stepped out in faith
and God has blessed our
congregation,” says Rev.
Charles Wallace, pastor of
David Baptist Church.
Wallace says his congre-
gation is looking at “building
down the road in the future”
but for now the church is
holding two worship serv-
ices on the Sabbath. He
preaches at 9:45 a.m. and 11
a.m. and both services are
well attended.
In April 2011 the church
decided to add another serv-
ice because of increased at-
tendance, not only in the
sanctuary but in the Sunday
school and the pastor says
“everything is working out
well.”
Mid-week service and
children and youth missions
is held at 7 p.m. on Wednes-
days and a Sunday 6 p.m.
discipleship class and
AWANA program for youth
is followed by worship serv-
ice at 7 p.m. Vacation Bible
School will be held in July
and children can sign up for
the program at a booth at the
Bethware Community Fair
in June. David Baptist
Church is located across
from the school on Shelby
Road.
