As pastor of Pullen, I want to take this opportunity to welcome you and extend an invitation for you to get to know the Pullen faith community better. I am glad that you have chosen to explore Pullen Memorial Baptist Church through our website. It is my experience that Pullen is a unique Baptist church in the south. One of the most frequently asked questions from visitors is “What kind of Baptist church is Pullen?” I like to answer that question by saying that we are the kind of Baptists who hold true to our Baptist heritage of soul freedom, church freedom, bible freedom, and religious freedom. With a rich history of celebrating diversity, struggling with the hard questions of faith, and working for justice, our congregation has been a bright light for those seeking a different but authentic church experience. And at the center of it all is a meaningful worship tradition. It is our basic practice to respect every person’s individual faith journey while working together for justice in our world.
While being committed to our mission of being a people that extends God’s love and grace in our world, we also believe that as community we are to care for one another. We seek to do this through our many opportunities to build relationships while ministering, learning, and having fun together. There is a full range of programs and ministries for all ages-children, youth, and adults-on both Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. There are numerous mission groups in which to be involved such as: Care of Creation, Health Care, Peace and Justice, and many others that represent our church’s mission and ministry. We also have many opportunities for fellowship as well as annual events that allow us to enjoy our community of wonderful folks.
As interested as we are in you getting to know us, we are equally interested in learning about you and your faith journey. As pastor of Pullen, it is a delight to meet the people who worship with us and are interested in exploring our church. Hearing your story enriches our story and the life of our community. Please know I welcome conversation with you. My schedule is never too busy to spend time with you and explore your interest in Pullen.
