Bible Studies

We have several opportunities for diving into the bible. Whether it is a small group or something a bit bigger, or even just an independent bible study, we have something for you.

Ministry Outreach

In addition to local missions, we also support Cookson Hills Mission in Oklahoma, Midwest Mission Distribution Center in Illinois, and the work of missionaries. Click here for more info.

Music & Drama



Honoring God in worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.

Marriage Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at our church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.

Friendship Group

Check the calendar for our next outing! All who are 55+ are invited. Bring a friend and we’ll see you there.

Prayer Chain Ministry

Prayer can move the hand of God. Our church believes deeply in the power of prayer. A team of individuals receives prayer concerns from our congregation from those who have requested prayers. To join this ministry, call Ruth Johnson at 708-301-4924.
