"Ministry" is from the Greek word diakoneo, meaning "to serve".Ministry is seen as a service to God and to other people in His name. Jesus provided the the mainframe for Christian Ministry, He came not to receive service but to give it. Ministries should minister by meeting people's needs with love and humility on Christ's behalf. Ministry to others should be impartial and unconditional and always seeking to help others as Jesus would. Ministry can, and should, include ministering to the physical, emotional, mental, vocational, and financial needs of others. Jesus did, and so should we!
Look below at some of our Ministries and what we have to offer. Feel free to contact the church office for more information.
