Homeless Outreach Ministry
According to a recent report, over half a million people in the USA live on the streets, in cars, in homeless shelters, or in transitional housing. Of that number, 206,286 are people in families, 358,422 are individuals, and 25% of the entire group are children. 15% are considered chronically homeless. 8% are veterans with 1.4 million veterans at risk of homelessness. One of the greatest ways we can help make a difference is by reaching out to those in need. And the need is great among our homeless. Our Homeless Outreach Ministry is planning quarterly visits to nearby major metropolitan areas as well as within our own county.
Corporate Prayer Ministry
Every First Sunday
We have formed a Corporate Prayer Ministry open to all who love the Lord – and have a desire to express a heart for prayerful worship and faithfully seek the face of God. Amazing things happen when believers come together and pray, and impossible victories are often won. Please join us on the first Sunday of each month as we pray for God’s blessings and protection, for the health of our church family and leadership, and for God’s direction for our future.
