"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25
While our Sunday morning ministries of Corporate Worship and Education are at the center of our life as a congregation,
there is so much more to do and so much more to experience as the people of God.
OUR 1FAMILY MINISTRY, with BOTH SUNDAY EVENING and WEDNESDAY EVENING COMPONENTS,
is designed with that in mind.
Learn more about these two evening components below.
At Our Sunday Evening 1Family Gatherings...
(1st through 4th Sundays of each month)
We seek to minister more intentionally to four specific groups: Men, Women, Youth and Children.
5:30 – 7:00 PM
Adults will find distinct Women’s and Men’s ministries that seek to encourage and strengthen them in the UNIQUE CALLING each has as a man or woman of faith.
Men are coming together around God's Word using our weekly Family Worship Guide (found on Sunday Bulletin Page), and spending time in prayer and fellowship.
Women are currently using a study by Cynthia Heald, learning about Becoming a Woman of Excellence for God's honor and glory. (Scroll to bottom of page for women's schedule.)
NOTE: On the 4th Sundays of the month, men and women meet together for special presentations/gatherings such as Missions, Cultural Engagement, and Acoustic Praise. Youth and Children will continue in their regular ministries on most 4th Sundays. Also, 4th Sunday evenings end earlier, at 7:00 PM, with the concluding worship time NOT taking place.
Youth will find specific ministries designed for their UNIQUE TIME of life, helping them to take hold of the Christian faith while NAVIGATING THE CULTURE around them. They alternate weekly between Bible studies and topical studies.
Impact is our Middle School ministry and Roots is for High School students.
Younger Children (3 ½ years old – 5th grade) will find an ACTIVE AND ENGAGING time at Treasure Hunters where they learn important LIFE SKILLS and ways to use them in living out their faith. They also have fun doing projects of various kinds.
Save this Special Date for Treasure Hunters: Dec 12 Christmas Program
Newborn – 3 ½ Years Old – Nursery is provided.
7:00 – 7:30 PM
ON 1ST, 2ND, AND 3RD SUNDAY EVENINGS, 1Family concludes with a half hour of WHOLE FAMILY WORSHIP (all ages together) to bring a fitting end to the Lord’s Day and help bring our focus back on God as we prepare to begin a new week.
4TH SUNDAY EVENINGS END EARLY, at 7:00 PM, and do not include this half hour of worship.
ON THE FEW OCCURING 5TH SUNDAYS, 1Family does not meet.

At Our Wednesday Evening 1Family Gatherings...
(1st and 3rd Wednesdays only of each month)
Ministries on these nights focus on another set of important areas.
5:30 - 6:15 PM
We begin with a fully provided dinner which gives us a chance to more fully enjoy SIMPLE FELLOWSHIP and experience the BEAUTY OF BELONGING TO THE FAMILY OF GOD.
6:15 - 7:30 PM
Adults will find two main options.
An engaging Marriage Ministry which seeks to strengthen this most important of all human relationships. Marriage is hard, but with prayer, teaching, and encouragement, it can be MORE OF WHAT GOD INTENDS it to be, and we and our children are the biggest winners. We are currently going through the study Kingdom Marriage.
An Adult Bible Study in which we use an inductive approach to MINE THE RICHES OF GOD'S WORD and seek to apply it more fully to our lives. Currently we are making our way through the book of I John.
High School youth will find opportunity TO FELLOWSHIP with one another and also to choose TO SERVE our congregation through helping with the dinner, cleanup, nursery, and/or elementary age ministries.
Middle School youth will find a class on the HEIDELBERG CATECHISM to learn more fully the specific teachings of THE CHRISTIAN FAITH as they continue to make it their own.
Younger Children (3 ½ - 5th grade) will find Treasure Hiders, a ministry that helps children to memorize important Bible passages, HIDING GOD'S WORD in their hearts, while always keeping enough time set aside for play and activity.
Newborn - 3 1/2 year old - Nursery is provided.
WE HOPE YOU WILL JOIN US FOR THESE IMPORTANT MINISTRIES – ministries where you will be able to grow not only in your relationship with God, but also in your relationship to the rest of his people here at the CRCSJ!
