Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of First Congregational Christian Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, state, country, and world.  First Congregational members are very involved in a variety of ministries here in our local community to help serve the needs of the less fortunate in our community.


Mission Outreach

 

 

Music

We strive for God-honoring worship and enjoy giving Him praise through our music.  Many church members get involved in our music ministry by playing in our praise band for the 9:02 Worship Service and others enjoy singing in the Sanctuary Choir during the 10:45 Classic Service. Some of our members share their talents by singing solos or duets, or playing musical instruments as part of our special music.  Volunteers are an important part of the ministry of First Congregational Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.


Ushers

Ushers at First Congregational Church serve an important role. They are involved in passing out our bulletins, greeting people, directing attendees to their seats, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free.  Anyone can serve as an usher, and we like to involve lots of different people in this ministry.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is important and we have many different people who help with this ministry. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. We use audiovisual technology in both of our services.  The Tech Team and the pastor use power point presentations to add to the visual aspect in helping to understand the Gospel o Jesus Christ.

All of our weekly sermons and our Church newsletter, the Pilgrim Call, are uploaded to our website on a weekly basis.  This means that if someone is unable to make it to our Sunday Service, they can listen to the service on their computer from home. We also maintain an active Facebook  feed for additional church communication.

 

 

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God.  Philippians 4:6-7 “do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”

We truly believe in this verse and pray for our members, friends, and anyone who asks.  Each week in the Classic Service, we are given the opportunity to share any of our prayer joys or concerns, and then they are prayed over.  They are also listed in our newsletter and bulletin so that people can be praying at home and sending notes of encouragement.  For more immediate or private prayer needs, we have a Prayer Chain which can be activated at any time through an email or a phone call.  Prayer is one of the most important ways that we can connect with God and be in supplication for others.
