New Franklin Assembly of God

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:

Missionettes - Missionettes Girls Clubs is a program for winning girls to Jesus Christ through love and acceptance. Missionettes 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 Missionette 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.

 

 

He Stood beside Me

Read Acts 22:1 through 24:27

When Steve came to church after an absence of several Sundays, Sue welcomed him and told him she’d missed him. “I was in drug rehab—for the thirteenth time,” he explained. Touched by his openness, she assured him she would pray him.

Like Steve, Saul, later known as Paul, found himself in a difficult position. He had been traveling to Damascus to arrest Christians when an encounter with Jesus left him blind. Christians in Damascus were afraid of Saul. Fortunately, God sent one to pray for Saul. That Christian was Ananias.

“He stood beside me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight!’ And at that very moment I was able to see him” (Acts 22:13).

Many Christians know someone like Saul or Steve—someone struggling with problems that cause other people to avoid them. Christians should stand beside these people and pray for them. Otherwise, the Church may lose a treasure.

Thought for Today: The difference between success and failure in a friend’s life may be an arm around his shoulder.

Quicklook: Acts 22:6–13
