Here are some other ways we fulfill our mission to build and nurture relationships with God and others, worship God in everyday life, and serve the community in the name of Jesus.
We have an active men’s ministry that believes it is the church’s responsibility to equip and empower men to be the spiritual leaders in their homes.
Men’s activities include:
- Monthly breakfasts – There are two different monthly breakfasts. The second Tuesday of the month at a restaurant for good food and conversation. The other one meets the second Saturday of the month at the church. This group usually has a lesson and discussion time.
- A small group study in the spring and fall. Open to all men.
- Equipping seminars such as Man in the Mirror’s Rewired seminar. The purpose of this event was to move men from performance to grace. It was followed up by a six-week study.
- Social events and activities such as canoeing.
Stay Focused Ladies Luncheon – Stay Focused Ladies focus on loving God and on prayer. Their desire is to pray for others and love them in the process. We meet on the second Tuesday of the month for lunch at different restaurants in the area. Feel free to invite a guest or bring a friend along!
Project Big Love – We participated in this annual event for the first time in 2014. It is a ministry to families in Franklin County that takes place once a year and provides groceries, sneakers, and backpacks for children. We looked forward to a continued involvement in this service opportunity.
Support of Local and World Missions
We understand that as followers of Christ we are part of a family and work that is far greater than us. We want to do our part in supporting, encouraging, and being involved in local and global missions. We support local ministries such as NETwork Ministries, Child Evangelism Fellowship, and Pregnancy Ministries, Inc. We also support over half a dozen national and global missionaries. We are currently looking to form a partnership with two families serving among the Navajo in New Mexico. This would include short-term mission trips and communications not only with the missionaries but with those they serve.
