Various Ministries

ymunbgrvtefcdThere are various, smaller ministries throughout the Church. Below is some information about each of them.

Once school begins, STAIR (Start the Adventure in Reading) will continue meeting within our facility. The program is an after school activity where young children are taught how to better read with caring adults who help them along the way. STAIR meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:30-5:00 p.m. in our fellowship hall. If you would like more information, contact the church office.

Metanoia prison ministry is a mail ministry designed to encourage inmates around the South with the teaching of the Gospel. An inmate enrolled in the program begins an anonymous correspondence with a Church member who checks and grades his progress through a study on the Bible. For more information, go here or see Bill Tremblay (wtremb@lsuhsc.edu), Owen Allen, or Robert Sims.

The Missions committee is a ministry whose goal is to carry out the great commission both at home and abroad. This is accomplished through financial and personal support of session-approved foreign missions organizations as well as local organizations. The committee normally schedules, plans, coordinates, and organizes an annual missions conference with the approval of the session. See elder Chopin for more information.

Youth funThe Worship committee oversees worship service (s) and makes recommendations for their improvement. This includes order of all the services, all aspects of the music, communion distribution, format of the bulletin, bulletin inserts, pew hymnals, pew signup sheets, and other worship-related things. See elder Richard for more information.

The Christian Education committee oversees and coordinates the Sunday school programs, nursery, VBS, and all other special classes, Bible studies, seminars, and other aspects of Christian education. See elder Koenig for more information.
