Community Ministry

We are called to develop reciprocal relationship in the community, understanding our mutual brokenness, checking our pride (coming from a place of affluence) as we desire to foster dignity with our materially poor neighbors and point each other to the hope of Christ!

Every Tuesday, Crichton Table opens at 10 a.m. where we offer coffee, tea, and water giving guests an opportunity for fellowship and a short devotional. At 11:00 we serve lunch where Rob or Lanier present a Bible message.

During this time, as people come in, they are greeted and asked to sign in, note their birthday and prayer request they may have and someone will pray with them right then if they desire. Then they are asked to find a place, where they are served a meal.

Our purpose and much of our dignity is derived from our work. We hope to discover more ways for our guests to participate, making the cafe a joint venture, a place we all share with and care for one another.

An invitation:
Come let us serve our God; moving toward wholeness together by developing relationships in our community, always pointing to and giving glory to He who created us, and for whom all blessings flow! Reach out to or just come by and have a meal with us.

Pray for us as we study the Bible on Thursday mornings with some of our community neighbors by showing and listening to the Gospel of John in a word for word dramatization of the texts of Scripture.

Jobs for Life:

Jobs for Life is a program for re-employment and career development training through discipleship. The mission of this ministry is to help people find meaningful work. Pray for JFL as we begin this new ministry endeavor going deeper in Gospel discipleship and empowerment towards helping others find and fulfill their calling in this life. This is high commitment for everyone involved: students, teachers and mentors. We will start after the new year. If you are interested in hearing more, reach out to
