We have many opportunities to receive ministry at the Christian Gathering.

This is called the ministry TO the saints
 
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministryEphesians 4:11-12  
 
Small Gathering
Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about a topic than larger groups are. For that reason, our church strives to offer as many small group opportunities as possible. We have gatherings for men, women, single adults, youth, married ladies, substance abuse, other support groups, etc. Bible studies and prayer meetings are encouraged in member homes. The size of the groups varies but is very beneficial to spiritual growth and relationship development. We desire for all our members to feel safe, connected and important.
 
Married Couples
Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. The church host an annual marriage workshop free to church members. We encourage our couples to build ties with other couples in the church for support and friendship. We offer various opportunities for this to occur. It is our goal to help couples to develop strong marriages and families.
 
Men and Women’s Ministries
We offer a variety of opportunities for both our men and ladies to engage in spiritual growth and building bounds with one another. Gatherings are held in several locations and homes throughout our community. These meetings include times of Bible study, prayer and of course food! The support and friendships built are invaluable! Retreats that are filled with learning, sharing and fun filled fellowship are held bi-monthly for both genders.
 
Single Adults
This is NOT another “singles group”. We believe if you can ever catch God’s definition difference on being “single” and being “alone”, it will change your life forever.  No matter how great being married can be, no other person can “complete us”. Only “in Christ” can we be complete. Only from a place of wholeness can we can foster healthy relationships.  We encourage any unmarried adults to join with us in the adventure of searching God’s Word in order to discover His blueprint for ALL relationships (plus, there will be great fun and fellowship)!
 
Levels in Faith (LIF) 
Periodically we offer special maturity series. Some are video feed and others are taught by ministers in the local congregation. Subjects vary from marriage and relationship building, learning how to be good stewards of our money, to developing our spiritual gifts.

We believe that each of us has a ministry assignment for the Kingdom of God!

This is called the ministry OF the saints
 

Discovering your place of service within the church is an exciting part of Christian Gathering!

We are not just spectators but engaged members of a family.

Volunteer ministry opportunities are always open and needed.

We have ample occasions to serve with youth & children, praise team, small group leading, media & technology, administration, congregational services, care giving, prayer warriors, etc
 
But we believe the most important part of our personal ministry takes place outside the church walls.
 
The first place we serve in God’s Kingdom is in our own home/family. Only from here can we affectively work in the church, reach our neighborhood, our community, our nation, our world. Each of us are ambassadors in OUR part of the world – wherever the Lord may lead! Ministry is a lifestyle. It’s not just what we do, but who we are. True ministry is accomplished as we go about our daily lives in a loving relationship with God and people.
 
 
1 Corinthians 16:15… that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints
 
 Timothy 1:9  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began.
