“So You’re The Ones We’ve Been Praying For”

This is a particularly awesome ministry that we are very excited about. The ones we’ll be praying for this term are those in the Department of Public Works. We’re going to start after Labor Day and, Lord willing, go through the National Day of Prayer. We will deliver home-made or purchased baked goods along with a note that states ‘We’re praying for you’ to different departments of the Public Works. Our goal is to let them know that they are thought of, appreciated, loved, and most of all, loved by God. 

children’s and youth ministry

  1. We have started a wonderful new Children’s Church program during the Sunday service that allows kids to “Dig In” to the Bible! We’re going through the Bible in a year!
  2. On Wednesdays from 6 to 7 p.m. children can come to their very own Bible Study.
  3. Open Gym Basketball for grades 7-12 is up and running! Join us Thursday evenings from 6 to 8 p.m. in the gym.
