Church Ministries

 We have many different ministries in which we serve people of all ages. We encourage you to get involved with us as we share God's Love. Here is a partial listing of the many ministries we have:

Girls Ministries - Girl's Ministries Clubs is a program for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Girl's Ministries provides an environment of support and accountability while helping girls to develop their gifts and abilities. In addition, girls build lifelong relationships with mentors who encourage girls to be spiritual leaders.  We meet Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:00 pm pm.

In the Girl's Ministries Program we have a group called "Rainbows" which is for 3 and 4 year old boys and girls. They meet from 6:30 - 8:00 pm pm on Wednesdays also.

Royal Rangers - The mission of Royal Rangers is to reach, teach, and keep boys for Christ! The purpose of the Royal Rangers ministry is to evangelize boys for Christ, develop the total boy for Christ (spiritually, physically, mentally and socially), and keep boys in our churches. We meet Wednesdays from 6:30 - 8:00 pm.

Soldiers For Christ - Soldiers For Christ is our weekly Children's Church for kids from K-6th grade. We meet Sunday mornings during the morning worship service and are dismissed to go Children's Church at offering time.

Youth Ministries - Our Youth meet on Sunday evenings at 6 pm. Our leaders are Rick & Sheryl Gudgeon.

A staffed Nursery is provided for nearly all our services.

A Bible Study is held every Wednesday night from 6:30 - 8:00 pm for all ages from youth, young adults and up.



Good News and Bad News

Read Nahum 1:1 through 3:19

A popular type of joke today uses the “good news/bad news” format. This is where someone says there’s good news about something but there’s also bad news about it. The humor or irony comes from how the bad news affects the good news or vice versa. In Scripture good news is no joke.

Look, there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news (Nahum 1:15).

Although it was not intended as humor, Nahum also had good news and bad news, depending on the perspective of the hearer. Things would go well for Israel and Nineveh, a long-standing enemy, would face judgment.

Likewise, the message about Jesus is good news to those who hear and accept it. But it is indeed very bad news for those who choose to reject the salvation Jesus offers to everyone.

Thought for Today: Oftentimes the difference between good news and bad news is perspective.
