The Bible tells us ‘each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others’ (1 Pet 4:10). We strive to do that in our community as we work as Christ’s hands and feet. We want everyone in our community to know the love of Jesus.” Then either directly under use “Let us not love with word or talk, but in deed and in truth. – 1 John 3:18
MINISTRIES IN THE COMMUNITY
IF YOU ARE WANTING TO CONNECT AND REACH YOUR COMMUNITY, CHECK THESE OUT:
When Moses’ folks could no longer keep him at their home, they built a papyrus ark to put him in the Nile to save his life. The Queen then became the foster parent. The whole foster care system in an ark until permanency can be found. We provide a ministry to foster families once a month by giving child care so that foster parents can have a night out.
This is an outreach ministry to families in the Caraway Commons Apartment Complex. Activities are planned at the apartment complex with the families during the year. The children and teens are also transported Allen Park for Wednesday night devotions, games, and a meal. Wednesday weekly schedule at Allen Park Community Center on Race St. on Wednesday nights at 6:15-7:30pm. If you would like to server in this area of ministry, contact Laurie
