Loss produces an ache….an emptiness….a sadness. It requires a major adjustment in life, one that most of us would rather avoid. Yet, loss is inevitable, and though we often feel we would rather not burden others with our sorrow, it is in coming together and sharing our journey through grief that the burden becomes lighter.

What happens AFTER accepting Jesus into your life? The typical testimony could lead you to believe that all hurts, habits, and hang ups instantly disappear. What a shock to the new believer when they don’t! Recovery, transformation, and sanctification are incremental, lifelong processes, part of “working through your salvation with fear and trembling” (Phil 2:12). Walking with Jesus is a personal journey, not a corporate destination, and it is a non-stop string of personal challenges and deep consolations. If your personal sin, regret, resentment, hurts, habits, or hang-ups seem to be getting in the way of your relationship with your Savior, come join a safe, gentle, Christ-centered group that will help you work through your “stuff”.

Are you homebound and want to receive communion?
The Deacon’s Care Ministries Team manages and lovingly provides communion for homebound members and friends participating in the life of the congregation.
A team of 2 Elders and/or Deacons will come to your place of dwelling and administer communion as an extension of the communion served in the worship service on the first Sunday of the month.
For questions, information and requests for home communion please contact:
Barb Jones, Deacon
Do you want to help serve communion?
Many have gone before us and been faithful in their attendance, support, and service to this church. Their names and faces may not be known to all of us, but God knows who they are. Many of them are no longer able to come to worship, but still long for that opportunity. That is where God may be calling you to serve, if you are a past or present Deacon or Elder.
Our church has an ongoing need for home communion servers. The training is simple, the time commitment minimal and, best of all, the Lord does the work – he just asks you to show up.
Prayer is a critical foundation of how we function as a church. Obeying God’s command to pray for all things and one another, supporting one another in faith, and believing where two or more are gathered together God’s Spirit is there also, is our Prayer Team’s mandate.
We have over 100 people who are committed to praying over a list of prayer requests each week. Requests can be for any type of support, which is needed for ones self or loved one.
PRAYER FOR HELP AND HEALING
Prayer after Worship Services: A team is available to pray with individuals who come forward for prayer following each worship service. The prayer team is there to support and minister to you through prayer.
INTERCESSORY PRAYER GROUPS
Groups which meet together either weekly to pray for specific needs.
