ministry teams

What are ministry teams?

Ministry Teams exist to assist with the ministry needs of the church. These teams are made up of volunteers who have a passion for a specific area of ministry. If you are looking for a way to step in and help with the ministries of our church one or more of these teams is just the place for you.
