About Us

 

Elam Egypt is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, Georgia Baptist Convention  and a member of the Middle Baptist Association (MBA). The church is located in Effingham County, approximately ten miles north of Guyton, Georgia and has a current Sunday morning attendance of about 100. Elam Egypt has strongly affirmed our affiliation with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Middle Baptist Association.

The sanctuary building was built in 1902 and can seat approximately 180 persons without adding chairs. The altar area was redone in 1998 as well as adding new pews and carpeting. An Educational Building, built in 1986 has a fellowship hall with kitchen facilities, the church office, treasurer's office, and ten class rooms of various sizes. In 2010 the Hall property adjacent on the south side of the sanctuary was purchased from the surviving members of the Hall family and is used for different church functions as well as the pastor's office was relocated there. Sunday school classes are provided from nursery through senior adults with attendance averaging about 75 percent of the morning worship attendance. There is a very active youth program, WMU, Brotherhood, Senior Adults (Egyptian Travelers) and Music Ministry. We currently have several members who have outreach music ministries.

The 2012-13 Church budget is about $140,000. Cooperative Program Mission giving has been at least ten percent of the tithes plus other mission programs.
