The Living Word Church meets in the Hedges Community Center, 716 Locust St. (Entrance 13) in Mt. Vernon, IN. Service are held Sundays at 4 p.m. with a Midweek Bible Study on Thursdays at 6:30 p.m. According to the church’s founder, Pastor Dale Culbertson, the church was created after encouragement from several town residents.
“People are tired of ‘religious’ services; they want something that’s not scripted and is genuine,” said Culbertson. We try to reach out to people at all levels of their spiritual walk. There’s people who would like to develop a relationship with God – but may not understand how or if that’s even possible – and we want them to feel as welcomed as someone who’s been a Christian for many years.
“If we keep solid Bible teaching and honest praise as the cornerstones of each time we come together, I believe many people from Mt. Vernon and surrounding communities will see positive changes in their lives and the lives of those around them,” he concluded.
