KITCHEN ANGELS (FUNERAL LUNCHEON) MINISTRY
The Kitchen Angels are a group of church members who prepare and serve funeral
luncheons to bereaved members and immediate families. It is such a blessing to
know that there are so many generous people in this church who can be counted on
to be there when the need arises. By being there for our church family in their
time of need, we not only feed their hunger, but also their spirit. It is our
way of making a difficult time a little easier.
Our Angels come in many forms, whether it is someone making a casserole or a
cake, setting up tables, washing dishes, cleaning up or just being there to help
Please consider earning your wings and become a Kitchen Angel!
HIS HANDS COMMUNITY OUTREACH MINISTRY (The Clothes Closet)
The His Hands Community Outreach Ministry is a ministry dedicated to helping
local area residents who are less fortunate than we are. Our church office has
always had a large number of local residents stop in for some sort of
assistance. This ministry is a response to this issue.
We hope not only to help those in our community who are in need, but we hope to
help them up and out of their situation. One of the ways we accomplish this goal
is through the "His Hands Clothes Closet." The Closet is supplied entirely by
donations from our congregation and the local community. We take in clothing
items in good, clean and wearable condition. We also accept shoes, accessories
The Clothes Closet is open the last Saturday of every month from 10:00
a.m. to 12:00 noon. Please call the Church Office for the latest
schedule of sorting days.
We are always in need of volunteers for jobs such as sorting, organizing,
working the Clothes Closet while open, and especially men for picking
up/delivering and moving furniture, etc. Let us know how you would like to help
be a part of this important work that God has given our church to do.
PRAYER CHAIN MINISTRY
The Prayer Chain consists of many church members who are "on call" for those who
have immediate prayer needs. The Prayer Chain consists of the pastor, 2
coordinators and seven different prayer teams, each team headed by a captain.
The coordinators receive the telephone call for the immediate prayer need, call
their designated captains, who in turn call the members of their prayer teams --
and everyone is praying for the one in need!
Prayer is powerful. Please consider joining this ministry or calling the Prayer
Chain when you have an immediate prayer need.
OASIS - WEDNESDAY EVENING BIBLE STUDY
Come to Oasis, our Wednesday Evening Adult Bible Study and Discussion Group at
7:00 in the Church Office. Please call the Church Office for the current schedule.
Have you ever missed a great Sunday sermon because you were out of town, ill or
volunteering for Toddler Care or Adventures in Worship? Or was there ever a
Sunday where you found the choir to be so inspiring that you thought you could
listen to them all day? Or are you a shut-in who is unable to attend the Sunday
morning worship service at all? Well, now you can
see our entire service on DVD thanks to our Audio-Video
Ministry under the direction of Randy Hunt.
Each and every service given in our Sanctuary, be it a regular Sunday morning
service, the Tenebrae Service before Easter or Candlelight Service for
Christmas, is recorded on DVD. These DVDs are available to any member of the
congregation at any time. Members may keep the DVDs as long as they need to. We
do ask, however, that once you are finished with the DVDs that they be
promptly returned so that others may enjoy them too.
We hope you will use and enjoy this ministry for yourself or someone you know
who may need spiritual guidance.
Looking for more Christian literature? There is a wealth of good reading
material in our tiny Church Library. It is located in the room at the back of
the Sanctuary in a cabinet marked "Church Library." It is easy to check out a
book. Simply remove the card in the pocket of the book, write your name and the
date on the card, and place the card in the large index box also located in the
cabinet. Take the book home, read it, enjoy it, and then return it for someone
else to enjoy. Upon returning the book, remove the card from the index box,
place it back in the card pocket of the book, and put the book back on the shelf
in the letter section of the first letter of the author's last name.
