For the last two years we have made prayer quilts for people who are ill or discouraged to help promote the love of God and the support of His people. The latest recipient is a young girl by the name of Skylar who has AML Leukemia and will undergo bone marrow transplant after the first of the year. Here is a picture of Skylar with the prayer quilt. It is number 48. Please pray for her upcoming procedure and a return to full health afterward. Blessings
Ladies Christian Fellowship
The Ladies Christian Fellowship (LCF) meets the 4th Monday of each month, from September through April and is open to all ladies of the Church. We have good fellowship and keep busy with various projects. We plan and organize the Mother/Daughter Banquet each year in the spring. Our on-going projects are sending flowers to Church members who are hospitalized. We also make fleece blankets for anyone from the Church who is sick. We host the June Fellowship Break providing graduation cakes to honor the graduates. Another yearly project we do is to make and decorate Christmas Stockings for the soldiers. The Weston American Legion Auxiliary fill the stockings with candy, personal items, socks, etc. and mail them out.
The Leadership Ministry of the church consists of a Preaching Minister, Elders, Deacons, Trustees and a Treasurer for the Corporation who make up our Board. We are a non-denominational church that is responsible for its own finances, leadership and positions regarding the Faith. Officers are typically elected every year from qualified candidates who are members of the church.
Currently the Minister and Elders are involved in a mentoring group with nine other men. We are studying a book by Dietrich Bonhoeffer called "Life Together" trying to develop and instill the ideas of community and fellowship the book espouses. This selected group meets on the second Sunday of every month for study, prayer, fellowship, and food.
Also there are quarterly men's meetings that are held with sister churches in the area on usually the first Saturday at 9am at various locations on an alternating schedule. Throughout the year there are opportunities to attend seminars and workshops at our Bible colleges and other such affiliated programs like the North American Christian Convention and I.C.O.M (Missions).
Let It Rise
Let it Rise practices every Thursday evening at 7pm. If you have a gift of playing an instrument, think about joining the band.
We have now added 3 monitors in each section of the sanctuary for a more worshipful experience
