INDIVIDUAL MINISTRIES (for specific times see previous page)


1. Prayer Ministry:  (Prayer teams)

We have prayer groups that are ready to take your requests and needs to the Lord any time. Please call the Church/Pastor with any requests so that we have the opportunity to pray for them. It would be very encouraging to all of us if you would afterwards share how God has answered the prayers. We have seen many prayers answered “above and beyond what we can perceive.”

Weekly Prayer Meetings are offered and we encourage everyone to attend. (see above and/or the calendar for details)


2. Sunday School Classes, age 3-15

Youth and Adult Bible Discussion Groups ages 15 and up

The purpose of the Sunday school and Bible Discussion programs is to help children, youth and adults put Christ in every aspect of life by recognizing him as Savior and Lord and developing a life-style based on biblical values. We would be glad to share with you more information and how you can become part of this ministry.

4. Youth Dynamics

Saturday evenings at 6:30 PM in multi-purpose room

Youth Ministry Leader:  Henry Dueck
Youth Administration: Mark & Andrea Fruehm

We want an ever-growing number of young people (ages 14-20) to attend our Church finding it a place where they feel loved, accepted, cared for, and where they can develop life-long friendships.  Our primary objective is to introduce them to a Biblical lifestyle and to lay down a spiritual foundation so they can experience the love of Jesus and have a personal relationship with Him.  We also want to help them form Godly heart attitudes, motives, actions, dreams by serving and sharing their testimony with others.  We want this Youth Ministry to be Christ-Centered, but will also include exciting activities, games, and many opportunities to make a difference in the community.  Young people really don’t care how much we know, until they know how much we care!


5. College and Career:

Monthly Potluck Meetings. Different locations. Contact us for more information.


6. Men’s Ministry:

The Men’s Ministry is centered on the scripture, “If one falls down his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up.“ (Eccl. 4:10) Without men being the spiritual leaders that God calls them to be, the Church will not be a relevant or life-changing force in the world. Men who understand and embrace God’s calling on their lives will positively impact their families, communities, cities, nation and the world for Christ. God’s will for the man submitted to Christ is not to be a passive observer of the culture, but to be actively engaged in winning the battle for that culture. Therefore, the Men’s ministry seeks to equip the 21st century man to be salt and light in a dark world: to other men, to his wife or girlfriend, family, workplace and beyond.

Fellowship and Men’s Prayer Breakfast: Meets the last Saturday of every month (from September to June) at 8:00 am. This is a great time of Bible Study, fellowship and breakfast out afterwards.
