Loving @ Prairie Avenue

 

By Jesus Christ we are called to love God and one another. Just a few opportunities of developing loving practices with God and neighbor are listed below:

Stephen Ministry

One-to-one lay Christian care

Stephen Ministers are Christian volunteers who are available to support you when dealing with deep personal issues. Stephen Ministers care by listening, supporting, encouraging, praying, being dependable and trustworthy and maintaining confidentiality in their caregiving.

Elders

Spiritual Life Leaders

Elders are the spiritual shepherds and leaders of the congregation.  While one of the principal duties of an elder is to preside at the Lord's table each Sunday, they are also called to serve as part of the pastoral care team.  It is our Elders who oversee our shut-in and visitation list, call upon those who are ill in the absence of the pastors, and keep the pastors informed of needs and concerns of the congregation.  Our Elders are elected to serve.

Deacons

Serving the needs

Deacons are responsible for promoting the growth and welfare of the church, assist in greeting and ushering of the worshippers; prepare and distribute the Lord's Supper and receive the offerings; assist in financial cnavasses, visitation projects; helping with baptisms; give counsel and service in the business affairs and program activities of the church; minister to the needy; minister to families in times of sickness and bereavement. Deacons are elected to serve.

Disciples Women

Supporting the ministries

 Disciples Women is our women's fellowship and devotional group. Its purpose is to provide opportunities for spiritual growth, enrichment, education and creative ministries to enable women to develop a sense of personal responsibility for the whole mission of the Church of Jesus Christ.  Regular meetings are held September-May on the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m.  Sponsored activities include the annual church garage sale and November Bazaar.  All women young and old are welcome to join us!
