Our Ministries

Our Ministries

“Well done good and faithful servant…,” That’s what we all want to hear on that glorious day when we join Jesus. Be confident that your service touches others with the love of Jesus. While sometimes we think of ministry as something we do at church, it is much more. Taking care of family members, helping a neighbor, random-acts of kindness, and a host of other things we do everyday can be ministry if done in the name of Christ.
