CONNECTING: Loving God
When we are traveling with God and letting God recalibrate our "heart," we find that transformation becomes a beautiful reality in our life! Taking advantage of Connecting Opportunities will help us "connect" at a deeper level with God and with our neighbor.
CARING: Showing God
The Christian life is about living our calling to be salt and light in the world. Reaching out to those who are hurting, struggling, in need, or oppressed is the very heartbeat of Jesus. Caring Opportunities provide significant ways we show our love for God and our love for and toward others.
Prayer Ministry –Through prayer, we align our lives with God. This ministry team meets weekly and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, seeks the will of God for individuals, our community, our church, and the world. Another team of Prayer Disciples prays for others who have shared specific prayer requests.
Stephen Ministry – Stephen Ministry is grounded in Jesus' command to love one another. Through one-on-one confidential caring relationships, those who are hurting receive the love and care they need for support and wholeness. Stephen Ministers are people in the congregation who have completed extensive training and answered God’s call to care for others by listening, caring, and offering spiritual guidance and support.
Congregational Care Team - This team is comprised of Lay Ministers who each lead a smaller group within our church family. Each Lay Minister is specially trained and committed to providing the care and support needed in a growing family.
Support Groups provide encouragement and hope. Support groups may include Alzheimer’s support, Alcoholics Anonymous, Grief Care, and Divorce Care.
