MINISTRY GROUPS

Worship is loving the Lord with all your heart. The Church exists to worship God. When we express our love to God, we are worshipping.

Statement of Faith:

We believe in God above us, maker and sustainer of all life, of sun and moon, of water and earth, of male and female.  We believe in God beside us, Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, born of a woman, servant of the poor, tortured and nailed to a tree.  A man of sorrows, he died forsaken.  He descended into the earth, to the place of death.  On the third day he rose from the tomb.  He ascended into heaven to be everywhere present and his Kingdom will come on Earth.  We believe in God within us, the Holy Spirit of Pentecostal fire, life-giving breath of the church, Spirit of resurrection and eternal life.  Amen.

Altar Guild

A devoted group of ladies that setups the altar for services and beautifies the church with flowers and other seasonal settings. A wonderful way to make use of your creative talents. Please contact Phyllis Prescott if you wish to provide flowers in the church. 

Readers, Servers & Chalice Bearers

These are important ministries, both practical and symbolic, which enhance the worship of the whole congregation. As always, we can use additional people. If you are interested in serving God and our community in any of these roles, please speak to Barb Freeman.
