11209 No. Houston Mesa Road
East Verde Baptist Church of Whispering Pines is situated in the beautiful setting of tall Ponderosa pines along side the East Verde River, just below the Mogollon Rim. We are a small congregation with a heart for ministering to the unique area around us. Most churches minister to a given neighborhood. Our members and friends of the church come from the communities of Flowing Springs, Payson, Mesa Del Caballo, Beaver Valley Estates, Geronimo Estates, Rim Trail, Verde Glen, Cowan Ranch, Bonita Creek as well as Whispering Pines. Some of our faithful members travel as much as 18 miles. This is a special place to meet and worship our God. All are welcome.
About one-half of our members are full-time residents while the other half leave for the warmer climate of the valley for the winter months. We are known for our close-knit fellowship. Like the early New Testament church, we are always ready to lend a helping hand. Our monthly fellowship meals are very special. Our members have a wide variety of occupational and professional skills (most are retired) which gives us much experience from which to draw. All are welcome and are sure to find themselves "feeling right at home."
