Pointing the World to Jesus

WOMEN’S MINISTRY: Our Women’s ministry seeks to increase the involvement of our female members, promote meaningful intergenerational relationships, provide an environment for spiritual growth in a comfortable setting, and assist in meeting the needs of individuals within our congregation.

We serve others through assisting those within our family who have needs and providing food bags and other help for those in the community. (Deacon: Bret Cunningham)

MISSIONS & OUTREACH: Our congregation strives to always be mission-conscious. We should desire to share the good news of the Gospel with others through our example, Bible studies, correspondence courses, and invitations to worship with us. This ministry coordinates our annual mission trip to Honduras and maintains communication with the various ministries we support overseas. (Jeremy Myers, Deacon: Curtis Synder)

It is completely free for all students as our teachers, helpers, coordinator, secretary, and refreshment crew are all volunteers. (Nichole Taylor & Helen Carter)

YOUTH IN FAMILY: Our youth ministry is family-based, both in the sense that the importance of the physical families of the youth are emphasized (equipping parents to work on building faith in and discipling their children at home), as well as the church family (using the resources of older Christians to teach and serve as examples for those who are younger). We are committed to the spiritual, social, intellectual, and physical growth of our kids through service projects, classes and devotionals, recreation, and trips. (Luke Dockery, Assoc. Minister; Steve and LaDonna White, Tarren Pettigrew, Garrett Sims)

Our Ministries

VISITATION: Our Visitation Ministry seeks to make our congregation more conscious of souls, whether they be the souls of our own members or of visitors who worship with us. Every soul is too precious to be lost, and for that reason this ministry runs our Monday Night for the Master program, which makes visits and sends cards to encourage our members and let our visitors know that we appreciate them and care about their souls. (Mike Raine)

BUILDING & GROUNDS: Many people will never take the time and effort to learn what we believe, but they will make judgments and form opinions about our fellowship by the appearance of our physical campus and grounds and our attitude toward these facilities. For that reason, this ministry is responsible for maintaining our buildings, automobiles, and landscaping, while keeping an eye to their long term use and needs. (Deacons: Ed Bachman, Brandon Rice, & Bret Cunningham)

SPECIAL NEEDS: The kingdom of God is open to all, and our special needs ministry exists to help those members of our congregation with disabilities. It seeks to make our worship services and Bible classes accessible for all by operating our sensory room during our worship services and providing aides and other assistance in our Bible classes. (Micah and Charissa Roberts)

INVOLVEMENT: Our Involvement Ministry exists to facilitate growth and edification within the Lord’s church by connecting members to ministries and other members (in-reach) so the church can in turn glorify God in the Farmington community (outreach). We do that by helping our members find ministries in which they want to serve and by providing a number of congregational events throughout the year designed to connect us as a family. (Jared Pack)

KIDS FOR CHRIST: Kids for Christ is a subset of our Youth In Family ministry and is designed to promote the spiritual and physical growth of our kids in Kindergarten-5th Grade. This group provides opportunities for our children to get to know one another and build relationships with one another outside of worship and Bible class. Throughout the year, K4C meets together for holiday parties, play days in the parks, devotionals, and service projects. (Luke Dockery, Assoc. Minister; Deacon: Bret Cunningham; Joy Lee and Katie Doughty)

EDUCATION: The education and training of children, new Christians, growing Christians, and those mature in the faith is a necessary and vital part of the life of this congregation.
