Visitation
James 1:27
 - Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world. We are to be in contact with our members who, by divine intervention, are unable to be in corporate worship with us. They too, are members of the body, and are a necessary unit of the family. Such members may be sick and shut-in, convalescent, imprisoned, or away at college and not physical able to worship with the home congregation. This ministry is responsible for the contact and visitation of the members who are unable to be in regular attendance with the body due to divine intervention. Such activities under this ministry may include: developing a prison ministry, care packages to college students or military, organizing worship at nursing homes, and communing sick and shut in.

Benevolence
Galatians 6:10
- As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all [men], especially unto them who are of the household of faith. Benevolence is rendering a kind act to someone other than yourself. As Christians, we are instructed to provide kind deeds to others so GOD can be glorified. This ministry is responsible for the care and contact of church and community during times of grief and bereavement and performing outreach activities to the community. ​​Such activities under this ministry may include: aiding and assisting during funerals, clothes and food ministry, grief counseling and workshops, and organizing activities with homeless shelter.

Family Life and Fellowship
Deuteronomy 6:6-7, 18

Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up....Do what is right and good in the LORD's sight, so that it may go well with you and you may go in and take over the good land that the LORD promised on oath to your forefathers. The family is a central unity and theme of the Bible. As Christians, we are GOD's children and adopted into HIS family; thus, we are to strengthen each other as we would members of our physical family. This ministry is responsible for the provision of activities to the church to strengthen the family uni
t and continue the C
hristian bond. Such activities under this ministry may include: marriage retreats, single’s seminars, game nights, senior citizens recognition program, and teen talks/summits.
