Getting Involved

By Derek Roman



20 Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:

21 But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see:and they that have not heard shall understand.

Each church member should join a ministry. These programs are designed to reach our area through every avenue available. We ask each member each year to re-evaluate their goals and select a ministry that they will be able to give their commitment to for no less than one year. New members are introduced to the various works in the church so they also may become a part of a working family of God.

Each year all Department Heads meet to present new ideas and future goals. It is also a time to share ways of helping young Christians become fully involved in outreach.
