  • Cathy

    My family moved to BSG in 2005. We attended several different churches in the area searching for a church home. We chose BSG Presbyterian--even though we had never been Presbyterian--due to its friendliness. The congregation made us feel at home immediately. Even though the congregation is small at present--the church is very active in missions. For example, one Sat every month "Community Lunch" is prepared and delivered to people in the area who can benefit from this service. The church is also active in the area Food Bank. On the world mission front--BSG Presbyterian is a drop off station for "Operation Christmas Child" which delivers shoe boxes of Christmas Cheer and Christian love to poor children in many different countries throughout the world. I recommend BSG Presbyterian Church to anyone seeking a loving Christian atmosphere. Cathy Galyean

What to Expect

What are services like?

Our services are a wonderful blend of both the traditional and contemporary. Those who find themselves at home with a liturgical style service will enjoy worshiping with us as will those who enjoy singing a contemporary hymn form time to time. Our pastor is currently utilizing the Common Lectionary as a preaching guide. We are a family of faith that enjoys an intellectual engagement with Scripture. Ours is a musical congregation that loves to sing everything from classical hymns to old time music favorites. Our choir, though small in size, is powerful in spirit and adds to our worship experience at least once a month. Many of our members are talented musicians and lend their talents during worship as well. We offer special worship services during the seasons of Advent and Lent that include an Ash Wednesday service, a Tenebrae service, Easter and Christmas cantatas and a Christmas Eve candlelight worship service. We invite all those who feel God tugging at their hearts to come and visit with us, to taste and see that God is good and loves them right where they are.

What is the community like?

Big Stone Gap Presbyterian is nestled in the heart of the Town of Big Stone Gap Virginia which, itself, is surrounded by the majestically beautiful Appalachian mountains of Southwest Virginia. This is small town America and we are a small church that loves our town and community. If you're looking for a place where you'll not be lost in the crowd - then we are the congregation for you. We love getting together with each other, especially for meals and fellowship.

What if I'm not a Christian?

You may not be a Christian but we believe, as Scripture informs us, that all people are created in God's image, therefore you are a child of God and welcomed into our hearts and worship. We invite you, at whatever point you may be, to come and explore your relationship with God. You are welcome here and we look forward to learning from you.
