Welcome to Violet Baptist Church

Join Us This Sunday

9:30 | 11:00



The journey is not for the faint of heart. Many of life’s mile markers bring detours, potholes, and unexpected conditions. Sometimes the route is easy and the trip is good. Other times, we find ourselves at an unfamiliar intersection and we’re not sure which way to turn. We can be steering in the right direction one minute and in a full skid the next. The truth is the journey can be full of difficult and confusing situations leaving us scratching our heads on the side of the road. The good news; there’s roadside assistance. There’s wisdom for the journey!  Join us this Sunday.

Casual, warm, friendly, contemporary, full of opportunities, real life messages, something for all ages from nursery to seniors… that’s Violet Baptist Church. Located in Pickerington, Ohio, we are easy to find and invite you to join us on Sunday mornings at 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. We are conveniently located on St. Rt. 204 in Pickerington, Ohio at: 8345 Blacklick Eastern Rd. (St. Rt. 204), Pickerington, Ohio 43147  Get Directions

Violet Friends To Participate in Tyler’s Light


Violet Baptist Church family suffered a loss in November 2013 when long time member Connie Roby passed away on Thanksgiving night due to complications from a recent surgery. The Roby’s have been at Violet Baptist for  10 years. Connie’s oldest daughter, Alycia, graduated from the youth group and Pickerington Central.  Her youngest daughter, Caitlyn, will be graduating from the youth group and Pickerington Central this year. The Roby family is deeply loved by our church. They have had a great impact on the life and ministry of our church. Pastor Keith Hurt and the Overflow Youth were looking for a special way to honor her and to show support for Alycia and Caitlyn. They have decided to form TEAM ROBY for the Tyler’s Light 5K which will be at Pickerington Central on Sunday, April 27th at 2 PM.


Tyler’s Light is a Pickerington based organization which seeks to provide drug education and awareness for families in and around our community. The Tyler’s Light 5K attracted 2,000 runners and walkers last year. This is a positive, family-friendly community event. We would like to partner with Tylers Light to form TEAM ROBY. This team will consist of runners, walkers, cheer sections, and race day volunteers who would display a TEAM ROBY emblem on their Tyler’s Light 5K T-shirt. The event gives us an opportunity to support a worthy cause, come together as a team with our community, and honor the life of Connie Roby and the daughters who carry on her legacy. Join TEAM ROBY and register yourself, your friends, and your family today! Early Registration (Before April 11th) is $15 for students, $20 for adults, and $50 per family (up to 5 members).  REGISTER

Vacation Bible School


You’re invited to be a part of our VBS Backyard Kids Club, July 7-11, 2014. Just as the name implies, Violet Baptist Church is doing VBS this summer at various backyard locations throughout our community. Upon registration, you can indicate whether you would prefer to have your child participate in a morning or evening backyard VBS. Our theme is Agency D3 where kids will have a chance to use their best high-tech operative skills, they will examine eyewitness reports, physical proof and biblical accounts to uncover and defend the truth about who Jesus really is. By collecting all the evidence, they will discover the truth of the gospel; Decide to believe it; and then Defend that decision. Our motto is Discover Decide Defend!  Invite all your friends! Your entire family is invited to join us as we wrap up the week together at Violet Baptist Church with all-family VBS Celebration Sunday, July 13, at 9:30 & 11:00 a.m.

ACTS in Pickerington


We’re so excited about the ACTS Multi-Church Community Service Day coming again this year. The H.O.P.E Ministry is hosting the event called “ACTS in Pickerington” on our campus.  ACTS,  which  stands  for  Active Christians Transforming Society, is a mission to unite churches in Pickerington together to spread the love of Jesus as a united body. Sat., May 10th, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 pm (registration at 8:30 a.m.) we will participate in a city-wide service event. Volunteers from 6 churches will come together on our campus and then go out by teams into the community. We will deploy throughout the city from Violet. Volunteers will receive their t-shirts on site. We will have four team categories of service:

  • Team Serve: City projects/improvements (weeding, brush clearing, planting, building dugouts at softball fields, etc)
  • Team Community: Intersections, storefronts, neighborhoods to distribute an ACTS gift
  • Team Appreciation: Preparing and delivering a special gift of appreciation
  • Team KIDS: Mission focused activity for kids of all ages (Ages 1-12)
