Ministry of Community Life

Christ has called his followers to love one another, love our neighbors as ourselves, and support each other.  The Community Life ministry brings these teachings to our lives by creating opportunities for fellowship and fun for church members and non-members alike.  Interaction with like-minded individuals of the community is supportive and essential to growth in the faith.

Some of these opportunities include:

  • Pastoral Care - The care of the community of faith is a shared task between pastor and lay members Whether it’s illness, hospitalization, or loss of partner, animal, or job, our pastoral care team provides prayer, visitation, and support. Volunteers are trained in bringing communion to others as well as visitation and active listening. Members of this team have the spiritual gifts of mercy, encouragement, healing, and service.

  • Ladies Breakfast – Once monthly on third Thursdays at 9am, ladies of the congregation meet at various restaurants to exchange/discuss their joys and challenges from a Christian perspective.

  • Advent Dinner – The Saturday before the first Sunday of Advent a special service is held to prepare for the coming Savior by decorating the church, followed by a communal dinner. We call this Hanging of the Greens.

  • Lenten Suppers – each Wednesday in Lent prior to the evening worship service, a simple supper of soup and salad or other simple fare is provided by different church teams to symbolize Christ’s ultimate sacrifice for us all.

  • Bunco – On a quarterly basis, at 6:30 on a Friday evening, all are invited to participate in a little gaming fun by bringing an appetizer dish to share and a wrapped $5.00 gift – everyone takes home a gift and enjoys Christian fellowship and fun.

  • Trunk or Treat - Our local community is invited to the church parking lot on Halloween to enjoy safe treats from our car trunks, with chili dogs and other refreshments inside.

  • Special events – at least once yearly, special opportunities are held to invite others to enjoy our faith community.  Past events have included a musical dinner/ theater, a Spring luncheon with fashion show, Ladies Spring salad luncheon, and Summer Salad luncheon with barbershop quartet entertainment.

 

Ministry members are gifted with creativity, social awareness and ease, hospitality, a sense of fun, and new ideas.
