Why do we go in mission and ministry? We are the hands, feet and voice of Jesus, the Body of Christ set loose in the world. Our ministry continues the ministry of Jesus. Jesus taught us to pray, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth….” We go in mission and ministry to make that prayer a reality.

Prayer team –
Each week, our prayer team prays for all the people (and their families) who have signed the register of friendship earlier in the week. This is a powerful ministry that wraps the people of our church in healing prayer. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, contact Donna Robbins.

This is a Church Women United project that invites both men and women to get involved.

Audio/Visual (AV) Tech team –
Our weekend worship services cannot happen without the powerpoint and sound system running smoothly.

These services are also needed for weddings and funerals. Jane Schultz is our webmaster and makes our electronic media happen, along with recordings of the worship service that are on website, Facebook and YouTube. Want to be part of the action?

Ruth Project Food Bank
We partner with Open Bible to make this food pantry at that church available to the public on Wednesday evenings. Contact Linda Starr if you are interested.

Linda’s food pantry – The closet across from Linda’s office is a small food pantry to help those in need who come through our doors. Its constant use means that it needs constant restocking. Bring food and hygiene items to Linda Starr’s office.

MICA food bank
Our church collects food and paper items for the MICA food bank twice each year (March and October in 2020).
Do you see a need in our church and community? God may be nudging you to do something about it! Talk to a member of the clergy team or find another like-minded person to join you in ministry. We are a permission-giving church, which means if God is calling you to start a new ministry, go for it!
