Military Families

Towerview’s location of being five miles from the Main Gate of Scott Air Force Base makes it a wonderful place for military families to worship, learn about, and serve God.  There are many great churches in our area.  You will want to check out all opportunities to continue your walk of faith while stationed at Scott.  We encourage you to find the church that “fits” and that you feel God is leading you to.  Near the base you will find churches that have a crowd of a thousand or more on Sunday mornings and you will find churches that have a group of fifty or less.  Most churches fall somewhere in between.  There is no “best” church.  But there is one that fits your needs.  Our prayer is that you find it and jump in!

Towerview Baptist Church is a medium sized congregation (between 175 and 200 in worship attendance on most Sunday mornings) that allows you to experience that “home” feeling even though you probably live hundreds of miles from your family.  Most, though certainly not all, of our members and frequent attenders are connected with Scott either as “active military,” “retired military,” or civilian employees.  As such, we understand the unique needs you will probably experience during your time here.  It is our desire and expertise to help you stay connected with God while in Illinois.  At Towerview you will find opportunities to be fed but also opportunities to serve.  Please accept our invitation to come and worship with us as you seek God’s direction for your family!
