At Green Pond Baptist Church in Polk City Florida, we have a simple hope: To see people come to know Jesus Christ and grow in their Christian faith.
For over 125 years, our church has been spreading God's good news here in our hometown and throughout the world and we pray that God will continue to use our congregation. Whether you've been attending church for years or haven't stepped into a sanctuary in decades, we hope you'll come and join us on Sunday.
When you come to visit us for the first time, our greeters will help you feel comfortable. If you'd like, they can help you find the nursery (which is fully staffed and safely run), restrooms, our small group areas, sanctuary and of course, meet our wonderful Pastor David Cheek, after the service.
During the service, you'll hear our faith expressed in the songs we sing, prayers we offer up and our Pastor's preaching. All parts of our service are grounded in the Bible, which we are committed to upholding. At Green Pond, we agree with the Biblical teachings of Christ.
After the service, join us for a conversation where we have a chance to get to know each other. Say hello to our Pastor and anyone else you see. We would all love to hear your story and to share ours with you.
No matter what your Christian background is (or isn't), we hope you'll join us on Sunday. Here at Green Pond, you'll find people from all backgrounds. We welcome everyone--including you. Our morning service starts at 11:00 a.m. every Sunday. Feel free to come early (9:45 am) to sit in on one of our Sunday school studies or visit the children's nursery.
