This outreach ministry is run within a local trailer park. Starting as ‘Kids Klub’ in the summers, this ministry has transformed into an all-year-around ministry to the families that live in this neighborhood. We purchased and renovated a trailer in this park specifically for this purpose!
Illumin8’s main ministry happens on Thursday nights. This is where we intentionally build relationships with those in this community. During our time together we have games, food and opportunities to hear God’s word for all ages!
We are constantly looking for opportunities to serve within this community.
Through this ministry we seek to Illumin8 this community with God’s love!
All volunteers for this ministry are background checked and NazSafe Certified.
Our goal for this ministry is to be fully lead by individuals within our church over pastoral staff!
Love Abundant encourages, loves and supports foster/ kinship families. We organize and run a foster care closet that helps families with new to good condition clothes and items. We also organize events such as fun festival, Breakfast with Santa and other various events. We may not all be called to foster but we are all called to help!
Vision: To provide encouragement and support to the ones who have chosen to love and care for those in the foster care system.
This ministry is lead out of our building from
Wednesdays 12p-2p and 6:30p-8p
2nd sat of each month 9-11 or by appt.
Donations in good condition are accepted during church office hours.
What if a ministry was developed to love, encourage and support the families who have chosen to take in the orphans? What if, we could encourage DCS? Caseworkers often work long hours and in very difficult, sad situations with no appreciation for the things they do. What if we could make foster parents and DCS feel loved, appreciated and encouraged to do the work that they are called to do…to love and protect abused and/or neglected children? What if we could show them all the abundant love of Jesus Christ?
Dare 2 Care
This outreach ministry seeks to serve as the hands and feet of Christ to all by daring people to care for others. With an ‘others’ mindset, D2C is broken down in to four elements; including, prayer, visiting, sending cards and making phone calls. Working together, those taking part in Dare 2 Care are able to reach out of themselves and towards individuals who most need Christ’s love, whether known or unknown. While elements of this might seem uncomfortable when first beginning, Christ compels us to step out side our own comfort levels in order to comfort others. Second Timothy 1:7 states “For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” (NIV). Will you dare to care for others?
