Visitation Team Ministry: We wish to take this time to thank all those volunteers who signed up this past year, to visit our home bound. More volunteers are needed, please prayerfully consider signing up for 2016.  The college, military, confirmands, homebound, members and guests, receive various greeting cards throughout the year. Those who are home bound receive weekly mailings of the Home Touch publication, which includes devotional thoughts, Bible readings and games and we try to make monthly visits from our church volunteers and/or Pastor.


Nursery Ministry:  Our mission is to provide children a supervised and enjoyable place during the worship service in our nursery.  We prefer to have the children sit with their families in church, however we know that sometimes that is not an option. Our nursery setting is limited to those birth to age 4.


Social Committee Ministry: Makes sure we enjoy our fellowship coffee hour each week after church.


Funeral Committee Ministry: Provides the man power, prepares the beverages, sets-up, serves and cleans-up for a catered meal provided by the family. In 2015 we served three funeral luncheons.


Our thanks go out to everyone who volunteered this past year visiting the home bound, watching over our children in the nursery, feeding us during fellowship coffee hour and helping serve at the funeral luncheons. With God's blessing it is the hope of this ministry group, that everyone will join in when the need calls. The rewards you receive outweigh the time and effort you give.
