A Special Ministry Needs You!

After many years of faithful service, Barbara Flemming is giving up the wonderful card ministry that has been so important to our church. Barbara has taken on other, special tasks in the church. Deacons are looking for people who will take up this ministry. This ministry can be shared by several people. If you’re interested, let Rodney Porter, Laura Durling, or Pastor Dennis know. They can give you more information.



Hamlett Missionary News

Here’s a story from Bobby and Katie Hamlet about their son, Eli:

“Each morning the monks pass by our house to collect offerings from our neighbors. Eli has been telling us we need to tell the monks about Jesus! So, one morning we made them cookies, told them we are Christians, and gave them Gospel tracts. During praise and worship at church yesterday, we heard Eli tell one of his friends who came (and is not a Christian) about Jesus. Please pray that both Elijah and Sarah would learn to love God more and more and continue to share him with others!”

Ministry Vision

Our ministry vision is that every person in the church will participate in a mission or ministry in ways that fit their God-given gifts, abilities, and calling, and their physical, financial, and family circumstances.

Do you know the many ministries and missions that the church does or supports? Here’s one:

Children’s Ministries

  • Sunday School for pre-K thru adults, Children’s Church, Nursery, Play Group (during church for pre-school children)
  • Vacation Bible School (June 24 – 28)
  • Homeworker Helper After School Program
  • Trunk or Treat Program
  • Mission to Collaborate with School Nurses

Contributions to the Sunday School program provide curriculum, supplies, teaching technologies, furniture, and storage. Children’s Ministry funds also allow for upgrading the nursery, purchase of appropriate toys for children’s play group, and provide for Children’s Church program and curriculum.

Homeworker Helper volunteers provide meals and supplies and reach out to the families of the children
