Give My Offering Online


Let us join with you in prayers of concern and joy. We will get it out to our community for prayer. This will strengthen, comfort, and connect us as we write our heart's journeys, read through other's needs, and pray together to our loving and faithful God Almighty. It's our time to rise up and connect through our prayers! What a witness in itself it shall be...

Children & Youth Ministry

We began our time with the game "Use Your Brain" and the children were good at guessing my riddles with just three clues. We talked about the perfection of the Trinity - Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. We made the dough using three ingredients and compared the roles of the ingredients to the roles of God understanding, again, that this is not a perfect representation. Afterward, we shaped the dough into something that was affirming to the way God created each of the children and praised God for them.

Children joyfully tithed their service this week by helping with the collection of the Offering, assisting in serving Holy Communion, and as Acolyte.

We have a new structure for the Food Pantry Ministry. During the school year, the students will pack the bags for distribution. We are asking our ministry leaders to sign up their ministry teams to serve twice a year (or more) in passing out the food to our clients. It is a contactless delivery. Instructions detailing the duties will be emailed to all ministry leaders. We encourage our ministry leaders to tap team members to serve in this rewarding ministry!
