WITM’s hospitality ministry is comprised of three areas: ushers/greeters; food coordination; and altar workers. Each function with the common task of carrying out the instructions given in John 15:12, “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” These ministries demonstrate the love of Christ at the door, the table, and the altar.
According to Acts 17:28 “For in him we live, and move, and have our being;” the WITM Dance ministry carries the message of Jesus Christ through interpretative dance. WITM’s Dance Ministry was established with a desire to allow the creative art of dance, to minister to the body of Christ in holiness, spirit and truth, so that all may see his glory. This ministry is available for both children/youth and adults.
The purpose of the children’s/youth ministry is to follow the instruction of Proverbs 22:6; which is to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” This purpose is fulfilled using a comprehensive approach that is based on understanding the primary task of youth ministry to: love youth where they are; encourage youth in developing their relationship to God; provide them with opportunities for nurture and growth; and to challenge them to respond to God’s call to serve in their communities and world.
The music ministry of WITM was created with the purpose to “Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.” (Psalm 98:4) WITM’s music ministry serves to elevate each congregants worship experience through songs of praise, worship and instrumentation. All of this is done to the glory of God. The music ministry at WITM is an excellent complement to the Word that goes forth every Sunday morning.
Men of Empowerment (M.O.E.)
M.O.E was created with the purpose “…to teach that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.” (Deut. 8:3) WITM’s M.O.E. serves to encourage men in the knowledge and belief that they have value and that they are valuable to God. We constantly challenge men to let God have the first and final Word as it pertains to their individual, family and community affairs. M.O.E. meets on a monthly basis outside of the church setting in an effort to fellowship with men from other congregations and men who are unsaved and are looking for a place to just be a man…in Christ.
L.I.F.E. Groups Ministry
L.I.F.E. is an acronym which means Living In Fellowship to Evangelize. L.I.F.E. groups are not a new concept – it is how God grew His church in New Testament times. L.I.F.E. groups are made up of the larger body of believers meeting in smaller, intimate-sized groups of 5-12 people. They meet in homes or at other places, outside of the church building, for the purpose of understanding and practicing life. The purpose is to deepen community, grow leaders and impact un-churched family and friends with the love of Christ.
