C.A.R.E.

The acronym “CARE” represents “Christians Actively Reaching Everyone.” We believe that every believer has been called to be a minister, a Christian who is actively reaching everyone around him or her through the aid of the Holy Spirit. Sunday nights are C.A.R.E. Ministry nights where we offer a variety of ways in which people can serve God through spiritual giftedness. Areas of ministry involve: Visitation Card Writing Phone Calls Child Care Have a Ministry need for our CARE team? Our CARE Ministry is available to send cards, make calls, pray, and/or visit, we ask that you give us whatever information is needed by filling our our CARE Ministry Request. Our CARE Coordinator is Danny Carswell and Assistant CARE Director is Lea-Ann Branch.
 
Youth
 
In 1 Timothy 4:12, the Bible says, “Let no man despise thy youth, but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” This is the truth that we strive to instill within the minds of our youth. Our youth meet on Sunday mornings at 10:00 am and Sunday nights at 6 pm. They also meet on Wednesday nights at 6:30 pm. Our Youth are led by Tommy Waters.
