Deacon Ministry

Deacons help us fulfill the mission of Jesus in three important ways:

  1. Deacons enable the pastors and elders to focus on the ministry of the Word & Prayer.
    Acts 6:2-7, Colossians 4:2-4
  2. Deacons make sure people don’t “fall through the cracks” with budget, building, and benevolence.
    Acts 6:1-2, James 1:26-2:9
  3. Deacons demonstrate the Gospel vividly by modeling servant leadership. Deacons are publicly recognized spiritual leaders who unlock doors, greet people, pray for people, and take out the trash.
    Mark 9:35, Mark 10:43

If you believe you are Biblically qualified, and you desire to work within the framework of this local congregation, please let us know!

Women's Ministry

We are women who gather in different formats and venues to encourage and equip one another to live out the gospel in our homes, workplaces, and neighborhoods!  We do this through small group Bible studies, prayer groups, retreats, and other groups that ebb and flow.

We love it when women use their gifts to bless and serve others! Here are some of the ways you can engage:

Something else on your mind? Just ask!

Youth (6th-12th Grades)

We have two big requirements that we ask of our youth volunteers:  Love Jesus more than anything else… and be a little bit crazy!

Some of our volunteers came to know Jesus in a youth group, some of us grew deep in our love and devotion to Him… some of us ran away from Him and His church.  Out of those combined experiences, we all recognize the formational importance of this time during a teenager’s life!

We want our youth to be rooted deep in Gods eternal Word, to be captivated by the good news of Jesus Christ, and to love Him more than anything else in the world! For from Him and through Him and to Him are all things. To Him be glory forever. Amen!
