This document is not static: it is amended throughout the year as we seek to involve every member in ministry.


God has placed the members, each one of them, in the body, just as God desired. If they were all one member, where would the body be? 

But now there are many members, but one body. 

~ 1 Corinthians 12:15-21

Signboard (Jim Bennett)





Are you a Head Cheerleader, Den Mother, Sparkplug, Instigator, Trailblazer, Campaigner, Encourager or Leader with an idea for a ministry? Do you see a place where you’d like to be part of a team?

Your ministry is what our fluid structure is ALL ABOUT!


This celebration of ministries list is probably not exhaustive of “every member in ministry”– many hands work within each of our ministry areas – and also come in the dead of night to drop off supplies or clean or fix something…all for God’s glory!


If you are interested in an area, or have a new idea, please see one of the Pastors or Co-Lay-Leaders.
