We maintain an office to serve our churches and connect with an ecumenical community. Christian Education, Missions, Youth Ministry, Laymen Ministry and Women’s Ministry are all vehicles that carry us in the right direction. With the Holy Spirit as our driver and with your participation & financial support, we can keep moving forward.

We are asking that you invite the teachers, principals and support staff who are members of your church to join with us in worship as we pray for and encourage those who work in school systems. They also help to create the village. Call in or email these names to the office so we can send them a special invitation!
