We are relocating from south central Ky, I grew up in a old fashioned baptist church. Are there any in the area that anyone knows of. I have read some old history archives on this and there where several churches of this kind, but they were established in the 1800's and don't know if any are still around.Thanks for any info

There is no shortage of Baptist churches in Liberty. In fact, until recently, the college in town, William Jewell College, was Baptist affiliated. Some churches are more fundamental than others. We attend a very large and more contemporary Baptist church called Pleasant Valley Baptist (Pleasant Valley Baptist Church - Home I think). I would suggest trying them when you arrive, but I don't think you'll be disappointed. As far as any "old" churches, there are some downtown including a large Baptist church called 2nd Baptist. I don't know anything about how they conduct the services.

Betsy, we went to Pleasant Valley one Sunday, but it is just TOO large for us! Nice church, liked the people, just we prefer churches a bit smaller than that. So we'll be looking around.

It is huge and they really emphasize getting involved in a small group in order to connect. The kids programs and the pastor are out of this world, which is our draw there. If you don't mind non-denominational and are looking for contemporary worship there are some smaller churches that you might look at - Shoal Creek Community Church (actually meets in the outgrown Pleasant Valley Baptist Church), Desperation Church which meets in a warehouse back behind the McDs on 291, and Liberty Christian Fellowship whose church is south of the high school (lots of my neighbors go there). Both LCF and SCCC has great teen youth groups as does Pleasant Valley if you decide to try it again. If you want Baptist, try Chandler Baptist on 33 just north of 69 or 2nd Baptsist in downtown Liberty.

Hi Betsy,

Do you know of any Methodist churches in the Liberty area that have an active teen group?

Yes - Liberty United Methodist Church. It's the big church on the hill on the SE intersection of 291 and 152. They have several services - some contemporary, some traditional. We are Methodist, now attending Baptist, and really wanted to love LUMC but I just couldn't get into the pastor. The congregation there is really young - lots of kids. They have outgrown their building and have land to build on in 2010. There is also NorthStar Church, which is Methodist. They have contemporary services. They have moved out of the church gym into a temporary space in a strip center while they wait to build also. I really liked the pastor but don't have any info on the youth group. If I were you I would also try out the churches I mentioned above that are non-denominational for fabulous youth group - Liberty Christian Fellowship, Desperation Church, and Shoal Creek Community. They all have contemporary services as well.
