Ministries

Ministries

Our ministries are the heart and soul of our congregation; they’re where the work gets done. In each of the ministries you’ll find dedicated members using their talents, time, and energy to serve God by helping others.

Some ministries are very visible, and others work behind the scenes. All are important to helping the church do God’s business in our community.

Adult Education

Those who serve in this ministry are dedicated to providing high quality Bible classes for our adult members. We offer a balance of textual, historical, and practical classes which are designed to help us grow toward maturity in the Lord and be better equipped as his servants in the world.

Benevolence Ministry

The Benevolence Ministry’s primary activity is to provide annual holiday food baskets to needy families in our area at Thanksgiving time. However, we also provide the occasional night’s lodging , tank of gas, bus ticket, or meal to people who are traveling or need emergency assistance. We are currently looking for people with a heart of mercy for the needs of people and the discernment to know when and how to help best.

Building & Grounds

This ministry is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing the building and grounds so that the church can be a safe, pleasing place to worship and fellowship. We do gardening, plan improvements, and fix things when they break. There is no shortage of things that need to be done.

Children’s Ministry

Our Children’s Ministry has a whole page of its own!

Family Ministry

In addition to family fun days, we engage in family service projects throughout the year, offer parenting classes and marriage classes periodically, and conduct a family retreat over the Memorial Day weekend. We are always seeking creative and practical ways to draw families together and empower them to live for God.

Greeting Ministry

The greeting ministry serves to warmly welcome each person who comes to worship and ensure that each has a church bulletin. Guests are given special attention to ensure that they have a positive first experience with our congregation. The Greeting Ministry strives to promote a “family feeling” of care, attention and encouragement to all who come in our doors.

Guest Ministry

This ministry makes it a special point to maintain personal contact with guests who visit our church. We do so with the aim of welcoming them into our congregation. Members of our ministry distribute welcome packets on Sunday morning, visit first-time visitors at their home, place phone calls to keep in touch, and host dinners for guests who may want to make our congregation their church home.

Outreach Ministry

The Outreach Ministry is committed to meeting needs in our surrounding community and reaching people for Christ. We plan, coordinate, and execute service projects and evangelism efforts that involve the entire congregation. Our goal is to become a visible, positive presence in our community, and draw more and more people into relationship with Christ.

Praise Team Ministry

The Praise Team is a group of gifted singers who lead our congregation in worship on Sunday mornings. Those interested in joining this ministry must be able to sing well and be willing to commit themselves to monthly practices as scheduled. We are a group of people who are passionate about praising God!

Prayer Ministry

The members of the Prayer Ministry are dedicated to prayer and to encouraging prayer in our church family. We visit people to pray with them, pray over weekly needs and requests, plan congregational prayer services and vigils, and seek creative ways to express our praise, thanks and needs to the Lord.

Service Ministry

The service ministry helps the members of the church to set up, coordinate food and decorations, and clean up for special events — potlucks, weddings, funerals, etc. Those involved help coordinate communion preparation and Sunday Bible Class refreshments on a weekly basis. The ministry also keeps the church kitchen stocked with paper goods and basic supplies.

Small Groups Ministry

Small groups exist to provide a sense of belonging, support and encouragement as well as an evangelistic opportunity for the members of every group.

Technology Ministry

The Technology Ministry provides for the audio-visual and computer needs of the ministries in our congregation. Those who serve in this way create slides, run the projector, and operate sound for worship services and Bible classes, and maintain the computer systems and network in the church building. We are currently looking for people who can run the projection system and create attractive audio-visual presentations.

Worship Ministry

The Worship Planning Ministry is dedicated to developing thoughtful and moving worship services for our church. We meet regularly to select songs, scripture readings, and plan other elements of both weekly services and special events. If you think creatively about encountering God in worship, we would love to have your help.
