THE MINISTRIES OF OUR CHURCH FAMILY
As we gather once again as a community of believers, let us remember that our gifts and talents are given to our God, to further the ministry of Jesus Christ here in Sutton and beyond. The pledges and weekly financial gifts that you generously give to God, allow this church to provide such ministries as the following:
•Sunday School: We are blessed to have so many children and youth in our church. Our wonderful Sunday School program allows our children to explore their faith, the teachings of our Lord, and grow in their understanding of what it means to be a Christian. The Sunday School program is designed to capture our children's attention, engage them in active learning activities and help them develop a strong moral foundation that will serve them throughout their lives.
•Youth Group: Both the Senior High and Junior Youth Group allows our youth the opportunity to deepen their faith through missions projects that afford them the opportunity to put their faith into action. Our youth programs also allow our youth to have fun in a safe and secure environment, explore their own talents and gifts, grow as individuals, and develop leadership skills.
•Choirs: Our adult choir, junior choir, cherub choir and chime choir gives our entire church family the opportunity to express their faith through music. While members broaden their musical skills, they are also able to enjoy the fellowship of other church members, share their gifts with the congregation, and reach out to those who are in need of the gift of music. On several occasions members of our adult choir have visited shut-ins to share their gift of music with them.
•Missions: Our missions committee has just completed their "Souls for Souls" campaign. Through your generous donations, we were able to provide shoes to children who could not afford cleats for sports, shoes for women and men who are returning to the work force, shoes for families who cannot afford them, and shoes for people in third world countries. Your generosity allowed us to donate over 280 pairs of shoes and to bring the gift of God's love to those in need. This committee has also helped provide food for the homeless in Worcester.
•Good Sam: The Good Sam Fund helps provide food for those who are hungry here in Sutton. This fund has also been used to help members of our church and community pay for their electric bills, purchase heating oil, and pay for medical prescriptions. Your donations to this fund are very much appreciated.
•Confirmation Program: Our confirmation program allows our youth to learn about their faith, explore their own beliefs, participate in City Reach, help the homeless, partner with an adult mentor of our congregation, and grow as individuals. This program helps our young people discover their own talents, gifts, and beliefs that will help them as they continue to mature into adults.
•Weekly worship. Through weekly worship the entire faith community is able to come together as God's people to deepen our understanding of what it means to be a child of God, to explore the lessons of scripture, to pray for each other, to join our voices in praise with each other and to deepen our faith and commitment to God. It is through our work as the body of Christ that we are able to grow as God's faithful people.
While these are only a small example of the ministries that are supported by this church, it is clear to see through these ministries that your financial gifts are working hard to share the good-news of the Gospels with our faith community and beyond. Your gifts make the work of Jesus Christ possible here in Sutton.
