Ministry

"To serve and to be served
 

Ministry, in its various shapes and sizes, means to serve. Serving in ministry allows the Christian an opportunity to serve Jesus Christ.  By serving in ministry, we minister to God Himself, and to other people created in His image. In the process, we exercise our Spiritual gifts for His glory.

Serving is a critical way to develop strong Christian relationships and to put what we are taught from the Word into action!

We pray that as you learn more about our ministries, the Holy Spirit will lead you to find both the help that you need and inspire you to serve Him with the gifts and talents that He has supplied!

All of the Ministries of First Christian Assembly are dedicated to winning, building, and sending the body of Christ.

            the Body of Christ in a fun and friendly environment. See calendar for information
            regarding these meetings.

 

Prayer -  “We know not what prayer cannot do!” (Spurgeon)

            corporate prayer.

Support Groups

            Stepping Stones – Stepping Stones is a Christ-centered support and recovery group for men and women
            whose lives have been impacted by the addiction of a love one.  

            

  Christian Families in Recovery - When addiction hits a family its damage can be severe.  Just as a hurricane-force storm devastates a physical
  home, the storm of addiction can bring destruction to everyone involved.  Christian Families in Recovery will help all those affected take a deeper look      at the nature of addiction and recovery from a Christ-centered perspective.  
            Held Monday Evenings @ 7pm starting on March 14th at Philadelphia Access Center

 

 

 

            Both of our support group meetings provide loving support and fellowship, confidential sharing,
            accountability and intercessory prayer within a Biblical 12 step model of recovery.  Principles of
            recovery united to the truths of God's Word foster spiritual growth and effective and lasting
            change in our lives.
