"I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously
reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my
eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward-to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.”
 Philippians 3:12-14 (MSG)

In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of
The Lord Jesus, how himself said,“It is more blessed to give than to receive”   -  Acts 20:35

We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to be true Disciples of Christ; shedding light to those who are trapped in darkness and to win souls for the Kingdom.

"Do all things without murmurings and disputings: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the
sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom

ye shine as lights in the world;"  - 
Philippians 2:14, 15

God's ministers, attending continually upon this
very thing. Render therefore to all their dues:
tribute to whom tribute is due;"
Romans 13:6-7

The ministry is responsible for addressing the Pastor's needs so that his time can be dedicated
to teaching and preaching The Gospel of Jesus Christ and ministering to the needs of God’s people.

OUR GOAL: To support the Pastor spiritually, financially, and emotionally through a variety of
fund-raisers activities and other services.  The members of the ministry are assigned to
take responsibility for providing various items and supplies for the Pastor to accommodate
his office and pulpit. Our primary goal is to show appreciation for his leadership and spiritual
guidance in the Church.

                            We are the doorkeepers, and we serve though love. For God is love. To God be the glory.

                            “For a day in your courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in the
                                            house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness.” Psalms 84:10

                    The Usher Board mission is to serve. We strive to serve the congregation to the best of our abilities. 
                            Our assignment is to be more attentive to our seniors, and people with special needs.  
                            We will provide wheel chair service for anyone who is unable to walk up the front steps. 
                                    We will put them in a wheel chair, and roll them up the ramp into the church. 
                                                        Our focus is on the comfort of the congregation.
