Ministries

Ministry

We believe every member of the Body of Christ has been given a function that will benefit the rest of the Body.  Therefore, we live to help our members find a place of service within the congregation so that we may glorify God, edify one another, and evangelize the world through our ministry teams and various outreach opportunities.

“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.  If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power forever and ever. Amen.”  (1 Peter 4:10-11)

How Can I Serve?

Wonderful question! Think about what you like to do, how God has gifted you to serve His Church and when you are available to serve. We take your desire to serve very seriously and will have one of our staff members or ministry directors connect with you to discuss serving opportunities that fit you.
