What We Do (Ministries)
1 GROWTH GROUPS: In every size church, it is important that each person, couple, or family find a group of people to help them in their understanding of God. This is easier to do when you have friends (or make friends) in the church. As the number of people increase in a church, it is extremely important that you get involved with a small group (almost a second church) to develop those friendships and relationships that Jesus encourages. There are multiple growth groups in the church to join.

1 CHILDREN'S MINISTRY: Children are God's seeds for ALL future adults. Regardless of height, color, age, gender, smiles or frowns, each is a creation of God and we have various programs to support their growth (spiritually and physically). Whether learning together, snacking together, having fun together, or just hanging out together, we want to encourage the kids of the family of God.

1 SENIOR'S MINISTRY: Maturing in age and a relationship with God is quite an accomplishment. Every one of our seniors can assure you that this maturing process (physically and spiritually) is not for wimps. We would love to have the chance to share experiences, successes, and lessons learned from failures as we continue to minister to God's people.

1 YOUTH MINISTRY: Too old for kid's activities? Not old enough to be accepted as an adult? Having lots of pressure from those at school to give in to 'the easy way'? Join us to Know that God created you as a special person with great capabilities and promise. God has plans for you. Come hang with a group that know that the teenage life today is difficult (and you can thrive anyway).

1 PUPPET MINISTRY: Puppets are a fun way to share the great news about God. Puppets aren't just for kids, either. This group of people (young, middle, and not so young) enjoy being in the background (yes, even in the dark) while telling the stories and songs of God.

1 MASTERS HAND MINISTRY: How can you tell people about God and His love if people can't hear the words? You use the language that they can see. God's word is special in every language and this is just another way that people can 'hear' the message that God has for each of us.
