Team PVC – Releasing the Gifts

  • Altar MinistryThis ministry serves people at their point of need, by offering agreement in prayer, both during our Sunday services and “remotely” through our church Prayer Chain.The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.”  – James 5:16
  • Loaves and Fishes – This ministry serves our local Church body, as well as our community, with food from our Giving Cow Pantry and produce from our Giving Garden (seasonal).  By working to collect and grow these resources, this benevolence ministry meets a person’s “felt” needs first, while providing prayer and relationship to encourage them to look to Jesus to be their sole provider.“…for I was hungry and you gave Me food;” – Matthew 25:35
  • First Impressions – This ministry focuses on practical ways to ensure that our guest’s first impression is the best impression.  Do we value people?  How do we express that?  From greeting, to ushering, to the coffee ministry, to altar ministry – this ministry is geared around anything happening on Sunday mornings and how we can bless those who worship with us.“Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another…distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality…” – Romans 12:9-13
  • Levites – This ministry is designed to steward what God has given us — anything having to do with the physical plant of our Church,  from maintenance, to filling the baptistry, to landscaping, construction and remodeling and the general care of our facility and grounds.“Appoint the Levites to be in charge of the tabernacle of the covenant law – over all its furnishings and everything belonging to it.” – Numbers 1:50a
  • CARE – Compassion and relationship – this ministry provides heartfelt, practical answers to the physical and emotional needs of our Church body.  Whether it’s sending a get-well card, or providing a meal after the birth of a new baby, or making a hospital or jail visit, this ministry reaches out to others with the compassion and love of Jesus.“Having then gifts, differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: …he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness.” – Romans 12: 6-8
  • Next Steps – From taking that first step into relationship with Jesus, to water baptism, to ministering the baptism of the Holy Spirit, to growing in our new walk with Christ, to becoming all that God has for us, this ministry assists those at various stages in their Christian walk through discipleship and teaching.“By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples.” – John 15:8
