Miss Christmas Eve Worship? Watch it Here!

Our Ministries

We are a church that serves our community and our world. While we have some steady ministries that meet steady needs, we also have a lot of ad hoc ministries that evolve and change as the needs around us change. In other words, what you can see below is just a sample of the work that we do!

Bible Study

Meets: Every Thursday at 7am

Our lay-led Bible study starts with a simple breakfast and then moves onto discussion and conversation. We wrap up before 8am so that people can get to school and work on time.

Book Group

Meets: First Wednesdays at 6pm

Our book group focuses on novels and memoirs that spark conversation about important social and religious issues. You don’t need to have read the whole book to join us for discussion; the book is just a jumping-off point.

Our book for April 2023 is Melissa (previously published as George) by Alex Gino.

When people look at Melissa, they think they see a boy named George. But she knows she’s not a boy. She knows she’s a girl.

Melissa thinks she’ll have to keep this a secret forever. Then her teacher announces that their class play is going to be Charlotte’s Web. Melissa really, really, REALLY wants to play Charlotte. But the teacher says she can’t even try out for the part… because she’s a boy.

With the help of her best friend, Kelly, Melissa comes up with a plan. Not just so she can be Charlotte — but so everyone can know who she is, once and for all.

Our book for May 2023 is American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins.

Lydia lives in Acapulco. She has a son, Luca, the love of her life, and a wonderful husband who is a journalist. And while cracks are beginning to show in Acapulco because of the cartels, Lydia’s life is, by and large, fairly comfortable. But after her husband’s tell-all profile of the newest drug lord is published, none of their lives will ever be the same.

Forced to flee, Lydia and Luca find themselves joining the countless people trying to reach the United States. Lydia soon sees that everyone is running from something. But what exactly are they running to?

Care Package Delivery

Meets: Varies

We delivery care packages to our members-at-home and others in the community roughly once a month. Packages have included soup, bread, cookies, and other treats; and we are always looking for new ideas for packages! The folks who make the deliveries also stop for a few minutes to chat with the people who receive the packages.

April 2023 deliveries will take place from April 16 to April 29.


Meets: Varies

We practice infant baptism, when parents and other family members make promises to raise the child in the Christian faith. Confirmation is the rite when that child, now a young adult, may affirm that baptism for themselves and join our congregation as members. It is also the process that those young adults go through to prepare for that rite.

Confirmation is different every year as we tailor things for the youth who are involved, but those youth always take a class, participate in church life, explore their faith with their families, and more.

Crafty Stitchers

Meets: Usually on Wednesday mornings

The Crafty Stitchers make quilts, lap robes, and other items for people in our community. They regularly deliver materials to the Victory Center Rescue Mission in Clinton. They have also made shorts for the boys at Sunbeam Children’s Home in Jamaica.

Sunday School

Meets: Sundays during worship in six-week sessions two or three times a year

Sunday School for youth, four years old through seventh grade, meets in six-week blocks, one block during the fall and the other during the spring, during worship. We use curricula from Illustrated Ministry, which creates thoughtful and easy-to-use materials designed to foster authentic faith engagement with refreshing designs and creative activities.

Spring 2023 Sunday School runs from February 19 through March 26.
