Adult Ministries

We are committed to each individual's spiritual formation and discipleship. God's ultimate goal for each one of us is that we become spiritually mature by becoming more and more like Christ in our thoughts, feelings, and actions. With worship as the center of our life, we learn, connect, and serve together in various ways.

A volunteer ministry through which we provide meals for a church family in need. This would include bringing a meal to those who have had a baby, lost a loved one, are experiencing long-term illness, or other times when a few meals would be appreciated. If you would be willing to join this team of volunteers and occasionally respond to these kinds of needs, email Mary Ann Cooper or call her at 708-308-3973. Thank you!!
