Men's Ministry—We celebrate God’s infinite goodness towards Christian men. God’s love and faithfulness have never failed us. The way has been arduous and sometimes almost unbearable, but Christian men have prospered because of their relationship with God. It is the purpose of the class to celebrate and strengthen men within the church – giving them an understanding of their role as leaders and empowering them to step up in ways that honor God.

Missionary and Evangelism—The great commission of the church is: “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20 KJV).  Our Mission is to meet people at the point of their needs wherever they are, to share with them the Gospel and the good news of Jesus Christ.

Music Ministry—Music is powerful!  It is a kind of universal language. Wherever you find people, you find music. God’s people have always been distinguished by their songs.  It is our purpose to advance the music ministry by edifying the body of Christ while ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ through song. Bring your instrument and use your gifts; choir rehearsal is held every Saturday at 11:00 AM.

Spiritual Care and Mental Health—As the body of Christ each of us are called to care for one another. The focus of this ministry is to share principles and techniques for impactful spiritual care within the church, and serve as a resource for others within our church and community.

Ushers, Greeters and Church Security are a significant part of church hospitality and safety system and fulfill specific duties to accomplish that role.  The ministry of the church usher is essential to the worship experience of all who come into the house of God; as a representative of the church and of Jesus Christ, the usher has an enormous spiritual responsibility to help lead people into readiness for learning, worshipping, and evangelism. 1 Peter 4:9-11
