Worship

Kernersville is known as a wholesome, family-oriented community. For many people, community ethics are shaped by the universal values of our area churches. Places of worship are important to Kernersville residents, and the lessons of worship guide our community life. C.S. Lewis once said, “We only learn to behave ourselves in the presence of God.” God is certainly present in Kernersville.

Many area churches hold two different types of services, with separate contemporary and traditional styles. Some churches hold worship services in Spanish. While most worship services are on Sunday morning, some offer midweek evening services, and others celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday. There are more than 100 Kernersville churches to choose from.

Several churches have extensive facilities that offer families recreation options at their place of worship. First Christian Church offers a Family Life Center, while Triad Baptist Church operates a variety of faith-based youth and adult “Upward” sports programs.

Many churches hold half- or full-day Christian pre-school programs.
Many organizations and churches offer faith-based programs and services for the community. The Shepherd’s Center and Crisis Control Ministry provide services for seniors and needy families in crisis situations. Kernersville Moravian Church organizes the Kernersville Christmas Stocking effort, which provides Christmas gifts to disadvantaged families. Kid’s Café, held at First Baptist Church, tutors and feeds hungry children. Nehemiah’s Few, a ministry at Triad Baptist Church, provides handyman services for the elderly, disabled, widowed and shut-ins. First Christian Church hosts an annual “Night to Shine Prom,” a social event for people with special needs, held in cooperation with the Tim Tebow Foundation. Tim Tebow, 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, visited one of their recent proms on behalf of his foundation. Based on Matthew 25:40, the Kernersville Family YMCA provides financial assistance so that anyone can participate in its programs. The YMCA also coordinates the annual Community Prayer Breakfast on the National Day of Prayer, the first Thursday in May.

Several area churches host Grief Share and AA programs. Christian counseling is available at CareNet Counseling of Kernersville. Fountain of Life Lutheran Church helps teens and young adults through the difficult teen years with their Girl’s Night In program.

First Christian Church hosts “The Christmas Experience,” which depicts scenes from the Christmas story with holographic, multi-dimensional characters and sets. Even Spring Folly, the largest street festival in the area, devotes substantial stage time to Christian musical groups.

No matter where you look, our places of worship and faith-based organizations have created a caring, Christian community.
