Some designated ministries are:

      • Worship Ministry
When the Sabbath was established in Exodus, God didn’t just say rest, God spoke to Moses and hollowed out the Sabbath as a day of worship. When we worship God out of obedience to our covenant with God, God makes a promist to us. Exodus 23-25, “Worship the Lord your God, and  his blessing will be on your food and water. I will take away sickness fgrom among you and none will miscarry or be barren in your land. Thus, every Sunday morning we assemble with gladness in our hearts reaffirming the words of David in the 122 Psalm, “I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the House of the Lord”
