The ministries of FCC Leavenworth are the source of the church’s programs. The members of each ministry gather about once each month to plan for the programs and events under their direction.
These people set the goals, plan the calendar and recruit other members of the congregation to help execute their plans. Almost every program, worship service, dinner or other event is planned and directed by the members of the ministries. The ministries are the true source of all the work done by our church.
Membership on a ministry is open to all those who have an interest in that ministry.Current Ministries:
- Christian Action
- Christian Education
- Church Property
- World Outreach
The standing committees at FCC serve various functions in the life of the church. These may be long-standing or temporary committees. The persons on the committees serve at the request of the church board and are often appointed by the church’s moderator.
Special needs in the life of the church often call for the formation of a special committee. Examples of this are a building committee for the planning of expansion or remodeling, or a search committee for the hiring of church staff.
- Long-Range Planning
The Christian Action Ministry serves the needs of families in the church and in the community. Its members concentrate on local outreach programs. They take gifts and treats to church members who are home bound on in nursing homes on holidays such as Easter and Christmas and also help with other needs such as food, clothing, furniture and utility bills.
The ministry also collects food at every worship service to be contributed to local food pantries and to such organizations as the Salvation Army and the Emergency Assistance program.
Christian Education is an important roll of the church. Age is not a limiting factor to learn more about our faith. It is not just for children. At the present time there are five adult classes and four young peoples classes. To see a list of these classes, click here.
The Finance & Stewardship Ministry is responsible to the general board and to the congregation for paying the bills and keeping accurate records of the membership giving. More importantly, this ministry promotes stewardship education leading to spiritual enrichment and character building for all the members of the church.
This ministry is aided by Bob Euler our treasurer, who pays the bills, and Carol Kenton our financial secretary, who keeps the giving records.
