Church + Ministry Topics

Church Life

Church Life

God created us to live out our faith within the body of Christ. Through the community of our local church we learn to engage other believers through the common practice of worship, service, prayer, celebration, confession, and other activities with the shared goal of knowing and experiencing Christ in a fuller, more complete way.
Mentoring

Mentoring

We all have experiences that have grown us and given us wisdom. But they do no good if we don’t share what we have learned—and they certainly do us no good if we do not seek wisdom from others who have traveled the road before us.
Outreach + Service

Outreach + Service

Jesus told us to go into the world and share the good news of the gospel. So we model and testify to those outside the Christian faith, to introduce them to Jesus and the kingdom of God. We honor God and others by making a difference in someone's life through thoughtful and loving help, advocacy, and compassion. We go beyond ourselves to act for the good of others and to promote the work and heart of God in our communities and around the world.
Women's Ministry

Women's Ministry

Women are relationship-oriented and need to connect with other women in order to grow, mature, and learn from others who have gone before or to share what they themselves have learned on the journey of faith.
