Children's Ministry Intern

Crescent Hill Baptist Church looking for a couple of student interns this summer.  In past years,  students have come to CHBC through Cooperative Baptist Fellowship's Student.Go program. This year, however, only one student was assigned to CHBC, so I am looking for up to 3 more students.

The internship will predominately be working with refugee elementary students of the Karen ethnic group. The Karen are originally from Burma, but arrived in the US through refugee camps in Thailand.

Below is a link to the full description of the internship. If you have any college or grad-school students looking for ministry experience (specifically cross-cultural experience), would you please pass this information along to them? This is also an excellent opportunity for education majors as four weeks are spent teaching in an academic day-camp program.

The internship runs from the first of June to the end of July, about 8 weeks. While the internship does not pay a salary, we are able to provide housing, if needed, as well as a small stipend of $125 a week to cover food and transportation cost.

Contact Andrea for more information. or 502-896-4425

Good Friday

Bible Battered, Dogma Bit: Fundamental Injuries

Sometimes we have been unaware of the ways that rigid forms of thought and faith have injured us. Sometimes we are all too aware. Sometimes we are unaware that fundamentalism can arise even among progressives and hurt traditional believers in much the same way that conservative theological fundamentalism has damaged folks of liberal faith.

The Crescent Hill Baptist Church Bible Battered, Dogma Bit ad hoc team will host a time of reading, and sharing our stories. We offer this as an openness for recovery and healing.  All are welcome. Sunday, March 22, 2015 from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. in the church parlor.


Because of the Winter Storm Warning for Central Kentucky beginning tomorrow afternoon, there will be NO HOMEWORK HELP tomorrow at CHBC. Vans will NOT be going out. Check the church website tomorrow for a decision on other church activities. If you normally ride a church van after school, we will not be picking you up tomorrow. Ride your regular school bus home. Stay safe!…/weather-warnings-1355215/348428
