Church Building


Powhatan typically holds church services on Sundays and Wednesdays.

NOTE: For the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying social distancing, the services below will be adjusted as needed. See the Bulletin page for the weekly schedule.

Sunday School

Starting at 9:45 am on Sunday mornings, we meet in various Sunday School classes to learn about the Bible and the foundations of our faith. These small-group settings give us a solid grounding in both the theory and application of living a Christian life, teaching us to develop a closer relationship with God and our fellow man. For details about our classes and their locations, see our Sunday School page.

Worship Service

On Sunday mornings, after Sunday School, we meet in the sanctuary from 11 am to noon for our Worship Service. Our service is mostly traditional, with hymns from the choir and congregation, prayer requests, and special music leading up to a Spirit-led, Bible-based sermon from our pastor. On occasion, we incorporate some praise-and-worship singing into the service. You can listen to recorded sermons on our Sermons page.

Bible Study

Our 6 pm Sunday-evening service is more relaxed and interactive. We meet in the Fellowship Hall and enjoy coffee while our pastor leads us in our Bible study. Questions and comments are welcomed, as we all seek to learn together.

Prayer Meeting

On Wednesday nights at 7 pm, we hold our Prayer Meeting in the Fellowship Hall. The informal setting allows us to study and practice what God’s Word tells us about prayer.

Family Night

On the first Wednesday after the first Sunday in each month, our Prayer Meeting is replaced with a Family Night service. We have service/study groups for each family member to attend. The Laymen’s League meets in the Original Fellowship Hall, the Woman’s Auxiliary meets in the new Fellowship Hall, and the Youth meet in the 6-to-12 classroom.

On the first family night of each new quarter (January, April, July, and October), we share a covered-dish dinner at 6 pm. Bring something to share, or just come and take part in the fellowship. Family Night services follow at 7 pm.

God’s Plan of Salvation

If you have never come to the place in your life where you have asked Christ to come into your heart and be Lord of your life, and where you know without reservation that Heaven would be your home if you died, you need to accept Christ’s free gift of salvation. It’s easy to do:

Know that God Loves You

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

“But God commendeth His love towards us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

Admit That You Are A Sinner

“For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

“As it is written, there is none righteous, no, not one.” Romans 3:10

Realize God Has The Only Remedy for Sin

“For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal like through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23

“But as many as received Him, to them gave He power to become the Sons of God, even to them that believe on His name.” John 1:12

Believe You Can Be Saved Right Now!

“Behold I stand at the door and knock; if any many hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him…” Romans 3:20

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” Romans 10:13

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” Romans 10:9-10

Get Involved in a Church

“But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory now and forever. Amen.” 2 Peter 3:18

When you make a decision to receive Christ, you need the fellowship of fellow Christians who will help you in your growth as a new Christian. You are invited to attend and always welcome at Powhatan Original Free Will Baptist Church.

Know That You Have Been Forgiven and Saved

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” John 5:24

“These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.” 1 John 5:13

If you have just accepted Christ as your personal Savior, please contact us, under no obligation, so we can pray for you and help you begin your life as a born-again Christian.
