Children’s ministry is not merely glorified baby-sitting for Jesus. Our children are learning the Word and growing spiritually in every story, game, and children’s church outing they attend. We believe that children grow spiritually through serious response to the sharing of God’s Word. We also believe that children learn by having FUN!! It is important to us to to encourage our kids in their relationship with God as well as their relationship with each other. Children need good Christian friends to help encourage them in their Christian walk. To help those relationships grow we plan lots of fun outings outside of church for our kids.Our mission is to encourage children to love and worship God, love others as God has commanded u, and grow to be bold men and women for God.

Men’s Ministry

 
In addition to addressing the issues and concerns men face today, our men’s ministry is committed to providing ministry opportunities for men to use the talents the Lord has given them. Our Men’s Ministry meet together once a month on Sunday nights for a time of fellowship and they also watch clips from popular movies and relate them to God’s Word. This is called “Real Faith in Reel Time for Real Men”. They also come together for times of prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and outside activities. The foundational commitment under all activities is to win men to Christ.

Care Ministry

The Care Ministry’s purpose is to reach people by showing God’s love through a ministry of caring, sharing, and serving. The Care Ministry sends cards to shut-ins and to those who cannot get out due to illness. The Care Ministry also runs a year-round food pantry that provides food to those in need. During the holidays, the Care Ministry prepares food baskets for hundreds of people in need. They also adopt families for Christmas and provide gifts for many children.
