Ministries

Each of our ministries represents an opportunity for you to be served and to serve.  Just as the human body doesn’t function properly when one of its organs isn’t receiving oxygen and doing its job, the body of Christ needs every part healthy & whole in order to function properly.  We invite you to find your place both to be poured into and to get involved and give.
