Love, Joy, Peace...

The elders and ministers of the Burnt Hickory Church of Christ in Marietta had a vision of becoming a church that plants churches. After careful consideration and planning, they determined that Bartow county was a prime location for their first plant. In September 2018, a team of people planted Burnt Hickory Bartow, a branch of Burnt Hickory. Initially the group met at the Clarence Brown Center in Cartersville. A new location was found, and in January 2020 we began meeting in our new location at Hamilton Crossing in North Cartersville. Our effort has been to take what is best about Burnt Hickory, mix it with a little of our own flavor, and allow the Spirit to create something new in Bartow County.

Below is a video we had created to kind of capture the feel of Bartow!

The idea for the room is that we are all facing each other. That’s because one of our values is community. We believe that this arrangement helps us connect to one another better. You will notice that our worship practices are very participatory. We talk together, pray together, read together and share together. Everyone is welcome to participate in all that we do.

Our worship time lasts between 45 minutes to 60 minutes, and then we follow that up with Bible classes and lots of conversations. We are typically finished at about 11:40.

In the center of our room is a table. It’s a beautiful table with a small cross in the middle of it. This table is there to remind us that we gather together with Christ present. We claim that this is Christ’s table, and we are all invited to it. We celebrate communion every week, and everyone is invited to receive.

We are not a very formal church. We are a show up as you are and just be yourself kind of church. We love kids even when they are noisy. If you have any questions about what BH Bartow is like, feel free to email Jordan and he will do his best to answer you.
