OUR MINISTRIES

 

The ministries of Crystal Springs Church of God cover an array of opportunities for you as you grow in your faith.  We don't pretend to be a "full service" church, however, the ministries offered will deepening your faith, strengthen your family, and give you many opportunities to make friends.

Prayer

 

Prayer is what makes everything happen.  You're invited to deepen your relationship with Jesus every Wednesday night in the Fellowship Hall for prayer and Bible study.  Bible study is an in-depth look at Sunday's message.  The prayer time gives everyone an opportunity to share your concerns and then have them lifted up to Father God in prayer.  Because of our cultural diversity, you may experience prayers spoken in German, Chinese, Spanish, or Russian but always in the name of Jesus.

Elders / Seniors

 

We have a rich heritage in our church family that comprises of many "Prime Timers" who actively take part of our church family. Our building is handicap accessible on the main floor. We offer hearing assistance for the Worship service each Sunday.  But most of all our Seniors are active and vital to the family aspect of our church life.

Music

 

The music we worship to on Sunday morning is traditional and older contemporary in style.  We do use hymn of faith so that we all can sing the doctrines and teachings of the Bible.  We have choir opportunities for those who enjoy singing, quartets, specials, and instrumentals that help bring the worship experience to a meaningful level of connecting with Father God, His Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

Children's Opportunities

 

There are many ministries throughout the year for children.  Please see our calendar for current events and times.  Crystal Springs Church of God offers ministry for the children during the morning Worship. 

What About You?

 

Are you living your full potential?  Do you know your God-given purpose in life and passionately pursuing your purpose for Jesus?  Would you like help, mentoring, and support as you attempt to walk by faith and not by sight?  Look no further!  Pastor Bill would love to spend time with you to see how the church family can help you be successful in your faith walk.  Why? Because we're simply church and God has a plan for you that we would like to partner with you as you grow in your faith and understanding of this neat relationship we have with Jesus.

Bridges of Courage Counseling is a Christian agency providing therapy to children, ages 2–17, who have experienced abuse and/or neglect, specializing in treatment for those sexually abused.

 

Caring for a child who has been abused can be confusing, overwhelming, painful, and even paralyzing. Child abuse shatters our belief that we live in an environment of safety and trust. While this disintegration of security is felt by a child, it is experienced at an even greater degree by the adults who love and care for them.

Bridges of Courage Counseling
is a partner for your healing journey.

 

Healing from abuse is not an event but a process.
It is a journey that takes courage just to make the first step, reaching out for help. For more information on service provided and how to contact, please click on the Bridges of Courage logo or call 269.944.9274
