Education for Ministry is a four year program that on the surface is a study and discussion of the Old and New Testaments, Church History, and Theology - but under that is a loving, caring group that learns together, grows together and finds their ministry together. The Theological reflection is mainstay of EFM, and teaches us all to think theologically about our lives. Our group begins the first Wednesday in September (6:30pm to 9pm) and meets weekly until the last week of May. Tables will be set up outside of the church, between the services, the 1st and 2nd weekend of June. Stop by and meet Steve and Pam Van Allen, you can see the books used, ask questions and if you like enroll.

The Ministry Board will be hanging on the church porch each Sunday and will have cards you can take which have the following on them: a basic introduction to the ministry, what kind of gifts/skills work best in that ministry, and who you can contact for further information.
