Christ Alone Church Serving & Ministries Opportunities
Christ Alone Church’s (CAC) mission statement is introducing people to the life-transforming Jesus, and we are a church committed to fulfilling this mission through serving and having a focus on missions in the community.
Below is a list of the various serving and ministry opportunities that exist at CAC, and included are the names of the people who lead the ministries.
CAC encourages all members and attendees to spend some time in thought and prayer regarding their gifts and passions to determine where their gifts may best be used in service to God. If you have an idea which is not included in the list below, the Session of CAC strongly encourages you to propose and discuss your ministry idea with them.
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. ~ Hebrews 13:16

Prayer Meeting – Pastor John Cory
Why this holy conflagration stopped was easy: spiritual enthusiasm cooled as soon as people became negligent in their prayer together.

Our Prayer Meeting takes place on Sunday afternoons.
