Women’s Ministry Opportunities

10am Bible Study

On Tuesday mornings there is a Bible Study (during the fall/winter mos) currently using the book called: Being Mary in a Martha World.

Church Women United

The ladies of the church are also involved in Church Women United where women from all different denominations participate in a monthly meeting and mission outreach. A different church hosts the meeting each month.

Other opportunites to get involved:

Once a month they’ve provided a dinner for the Project Unity for Life organization in Traverse City.  (Project Unity helps those coming out of jail/prison to function back into society)

The women also put on a few functions such as the Treasure Sale in May and the Christmas Bazaar in November.

Men’s Ministry Opportunities

8am Men’s Breakfast

On the last Saturday of each month the men put on a Men’s Breakfast in the fellowship hall.  Men from all over the Old Mission Peninsula come to enjoy each other’s company and eat a wonderful breakfast of pancakes, waffles, eggs, biscuts & gravy, and sausage. (free-will donation)

7pm Tuesday Men’s Group

Each Tuesday evening the men get together and discuss a different topic each week. It’s just a great way for the men to get together to talk about the Bible and how it relates to their everyday lives.

Children’s Ministry Opportunities

4:30pm Kids JAM Wed. program

During the school year we have a children’s after-school program each Wednesday where we drive the church’s “cool bus” to the Old Mission Peninsula Elementary School, pick up the children and bring them to the church for a 1 hour program teaching them all about Jesus and participating in mission outreach projects. Children from all walks of life and even some from different churches attend our program. The parents pick them up afterward.

Jr. Church

During our Sunday morning worship service we take the children downstairs to Jr. Church where they learn more about the Bible and the love of God.

VBS (Vacation Bible School)

Each July we have a 4-day Vacation Bible School program.  The 2017 program is HERO Central, where the children will learn all about God’s love and how we are to love each other.

Unfortunately we do not have a Youth Group that meet  at this time.
