S.S. Share Groups:
Small groups meet each Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. to study the Bible together and to consider how they might encourage each other in their daily walk with Christ and reach out to others. Fellowship and ministry opportunities are organized through our Sunday School Share Groups.
Every adult is encouraged to be involved in personal discipleship through our church. This is our T2 (T Squared) Discipleship ministry, because all discipleship should be tranform and be transferable. Through the discipleship process you should be transformed for the purpose of transfering what you have learned to someone else. Those that are interested in participating in a T2 Group are paired up with one or two partners––men with men and ladies with ladies––for a period of one year. During that time, they meet weekly, if possible, to study selected books, to pray, encourage, and be accountable to one another. At the end of the year, those who have been through the discipleship process are then paired with others who are ready to begin in the next year.
Through a Men’s Leadership Team, we endeavor to provide special events and activities that encourage both personal growth and outreach for men. These opportunities take various forms such as Bible Studies, retreats, camping trips, bowling tournaments, etc.
The Ladies Leadership Team works together to provide for the personal growth and outreach of our women. Practical ministry opportunities abound as our ladies provide meals for new mothers in the church, organize showers, and encourage each other in many other ways. This ministry also plans an annual Ladies Tea in the Spring and the Ladies Holiday House in the Fall.
Deacon Family Ministry:
Our deacons are here to minister to the practical needs of the families of the church. These men are selected by the church each year and serve a three-year rotation period. They are each assigned a group of families to which they are available for ministry, prayer, and practical assistance. Any member may contact their deacon or the church office for ministry needs or questions as they arise in their family.
Experiencing God in Worship:
At the heart of all that we do is our congregational encounter with God on Sunday mornings where we gather to hear God’s Word and express our hearts to him in worship. The clear emphasis in all of our gatherings is the Word of God. We worship in music through a selective blend of great hymns and choruses that reflect the greatness of God and his gospel. The word of God is preached and taught in expository style with the Augustinian conviction, “when the Scriptures speak, God speaks.”
Ministry Point Sunday Evenings:
On the first Sunday of each month at 6p.m. we have our evening Communion Service. We encourage all baptized believers to participate in the Lord's supper with us. All other Sunday evenings we don't have an organized service at the church. We have our Ministry Points. This is a time set aside for our members to do outreach and to minister to one another. We encourage our members to do visitations, hospital visits, or invite neighbors over for dinner.
Wednesday Morning Conversation in Psalms:
These hour long sessions include, a time of song, prayer, and an interactive Bible Study through the Book of Psalms with the Elders of the church. They are informal, but informative, and a great way to enjoy an enriching community experience with fellow believers.
