Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of our congregation is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Members are involved in a variety of ministries as described below.

 

Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is a priority. Many church members are involved in our music ministry. Some play instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir.  All are an important part of the ministry of our congregation, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

Ushers

The usher team fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege. Technology is part of our daily lives and we use “all the tools” we can. All of our weekly messages are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook page at www.facebook.com.

Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be one of life’s great joys…. or struggles. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in even the best of marriages. Our pastor is a helpful resource when couples begin to struggle. If your marriage isn’t what you’d dreamed it would be, please contact him. He’s glad to listen, encourage and provide helpful input. As he puts it, “I can’t fix things or people – so I don’t try. But many couples have found me to be a helpful coach so their marriage can be all God meant it to be!”  Couples have found fresh hope and new joy together. There is hope!

 

Prayer Warriors

There are times in life when we all need the prayers and encouragement of others. Prayer is a critical part of our relations with with God and with each other. If you’d like someone to pray for you or with you about something, please contact us. If you’d wish, only a small handful could be notified – or if you’d prefer, many are eager to support you in prayer. Call or email any day or any time.

 

Mission Outreach

We thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.

We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. The missionaries we support are:

Love INC
Christ Community Church partners with Love INC.  What is Love INC?  Local Churches and their members responding to Christ’s command to “love your neighbor as yourself” in a wide range of ministries.  As Volunteers reach out to others, their own faith and community connections are strengthened.
 
How the churches work together with Love INC:  1)  A Clearinghouse Volunteer responds to a phone call from someone in need and talks with them about their situation. 2) They utilize our community network to determine which social services apply and what church resources are available, 3) They reach out to partner churches for Volunteers who are willing to extend help and walk with our neighbors, 4) Service “gaps” are clearly identified as Churches and Volunteers work together to “life up” those in need.
