Sunday Evening Ministries:Small groups meet in members homes throughout Central IL in place of Sunday Evening Services. The purpose of this ministry is to encourage greater community and fellowship within the body as we discuss the sermon, pray for one another, and fellowship together.
Wednesday Evening Services: During the school year, the AWANA Children's Ministry, the Jr. High Ministry, and the Sr. High Ministry all run from 6:15 PM to 8:00 PM. While AWANA is in session, everyone is invited to a family meal at the church on Wednesday evenings that begins at 5:00 PM. On the 1st Weds of each month, a First Prayer Service is held at 6:30 PM, consisting of corporate singing, a brief devotion, and time spent praying together in groups.
