Church life

Getting Involved

Even though From the Heart is a big church, you experience the family atmosphere of the ministry once you get involved in the life of the church.  From the Heart is a dynamic, productive church and we have involvement opportunities for everyone, no matter their state in life.  Our church is alive and our perfected members understand the importance of using their God-given gifts within the local church.  We have been taught that each one of us has a share (each joint supplies the need of another according to Ephesians 4:16) that is important, sufficient and necessary.

Getting involved in the life of the church allows our members to become firmly fixed in the church.  This makes the difference in the spiritual growth and development of many due to the reinforcement of what is taught from the pulpit though ministry activity, godly fellowship, volunteer work, church-wide activities and enrichment retreats.  From the Heart has over 50 volunteer ministries, a Christian School and full-service Credit Union, all designed to meet the needs of our congregation.

“You have a share, it is important, it is sufficient and it is necessary”

From the Heart Church Ministries® is a warm and friendly church with many volunteer ministries that allow members to express their gifts and talents in service to the Lord. Ministries are instituted as needs are identified either from proposals written by the membership or at the Pastor’s request.
