Our Ministries

Missions

 

 Church-Wide Missions Program

     Now that the Seacoast Womens' Home and Foreign Missions Society has voted to disband, our support for Advent Christians Mission Programs has become the responsibility of the whole church.

     Men and women, boys and girls will all be invited to take part in any or all of the Mission Programs of the Advent Christian General Conference and our ministry partners such as Christian Witness to Israel, Missionary Air Group, Christo Salvo, World Vision, Samaritan's Purse Shoe Box Program and others.       Each individual is free to choose what program or programs that they wish to support through prayer and/or financial gifts.

Corporate prayers are said Sunday mornings

and a small group of folks gather on Wednesdays

to pray for the needs of people in the greater church

 family, our church, and other prayer requests given to them.

***

Telephone Ministry

We have people in the church who have an active daily

telephone ministry to others in our larger church family and communion.

Operation Christmas Child

 Each year we participate in this ministry of Franklin Graham and

Many choose to sponsor someone elses' shoe  box for $7.00  

This provides truck and air costs to get the shoe boxes to a foreign country.
