Ministries

RefresHer Woman's Ministry

Women of all ages are welcome to come, learn, share, and fellowship as we learn about God's Word through various media and curricula. We also enjoy fun fellowship activities like salad luncheons, tea parties, and other opportunities to gather. 

 

Men's Ministry

Men from a variety of church congregations meet with us at our facility on the first and third Saturday mornings at 8:00 am to enjoy a homecooked breakfast followed by a biblical video teaching session by noted teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan.

 

Sunday School

Sunday School classes are available for all ages and meet at 9:30 am. These classes are divided into Children's Ministry, Young Adult/Student Ministry, and Adult Ministry groups. For 2017 we will have more interaction among the classes as we learn God's word and help each other grow in our Christian walk. Come join the fun!  All children's workers possess clearances from the State of Pennsylvania.

 

Music Ministry

During worship services musicians and multimedia personnel work together to facilitate worship. Praise teams lead congregational singing. Ensembles and individuals present specials for God's glory, not their own. The choir also helps lead worship through periodically singing special music during worship services and through presenting Christmas and Easter cantatas. The entire congregation is invited to reach out to local health care facilities where we sing Christmas carols with the residents. The choir practices meets periodically throughout the year and typically practices on Thursday evenings 7:00pm - 8:00pm as we prepare for special seasons. If you are interested in making a joyful noise or wish to be trained for technical work in praise of God, come join us!

 

Antique Auto Club Ministry

The Flood City Regional Antique Automobile Club of America typically meets at our facility on the fourth Thursday of each month. During the summer we host cruise-ins on the fourth Saturday of June, July and August. It's a blast to enjoy the fun, food, and fellowship with the owners and to learn about their vehicles. The August Cruise-in is our local Peach Festival so cruise on in and enjoy some peach desserts, great entertainment, and see some cool cars!

 

Missions/Outreach

Our congregation participates in several local, state, national and global ministry outreach efforts. Some local ministries in which we participate include support of University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown (UPJ) Campus Ministries, New Day Christian Ministry to Youth and Families, and Mom's House serving women and familues in crisis. We support Western Pennsylvania Ministries (WPA Ministries) and White Hall Campground where summer and winter camping activities and the state general assembly and White Hall Camp Meeting are held. We support Church of God Ministries including Traffick Light Initiative against human trafficking and modern slavery and Stripped Love - a ministry to train women to serve and minister to other women trapped in the sex industry. Some of our giving is distributed to missionaries at home and abroad. In 2017 we are Living-Link Partners with the Coppess family serving as missionaries to Botswana, Africa.
