The mission of the Children’s Ministry is to empower children to grow spiritually, while learning and experiencing transforming ways to serve God in our church and in our world
Children in Worship
Every Sunday during worship, children gather for their own time of praise, Bible study, and prayer. 4 year old through 5th graders are welcome.
Standing Stones is a ministry of Counseling and Spiritual Direction. One licensed Counselor and a Spiritual Director from our congregation have come together to offer low cost counseling and spiritual direction for the community. Contact Pat Cassell for more information at 945-5463 x 3030.

Our Women's Ministry is designed to give women throughout Barry County the opportunity to experience joy and growth in their lives through a relationship with Jesus Christ. It is our goal to encourage one another to become women of godly influence and to pursue God wholeheartedly.
Join the "Knit-Wits" who meet every Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. to do the needlework of your choice. A primary function of this group is to maintain a supply of knitted or crocheted Prayer Shawls to be taken to shut-ins, or those who are ill or grieving, by our Deacons or Congregational Care Pastor. Questions about the "Knit-Wits"? Call Barb Bell (948-8883) or Sunny Anderson (948-8811), or just show up on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m.! You don’t have to be an “expert” – someone here is always willing to teach or help with patterns or skills!
