The Importance of Ministry

At Berean Fellowship, we have several different ministries which are there to help the church as we strive to honor God in their lives inside and outside of the Sunday worship.


Welcome and Usher Ministries

In order to provide guidance, information and a welcoming environment we have ushers and greeters available to assist those attending Berean Fellowship. Our ushers who can be identified by their black shirts are able to show newcomers where the various children’s classes are and to help them find seating. Our greeters in the foyer distribute sermon notes and can give assistance as necessary.

At Berean Fellowship we celebrate communion on the first Sunday of the month. Gluten free crackers and grape juice are the elements provided.”And He took bread and gave thanks, and He broke it and gave it to them, saying, This is My body which is given for you, this do in remembrance of Me.” Luke 22:19.

Children Ministries

Children’s Ministry exists to serve both parents and children. We serve parents by coming alongside them in their efforts to teach their children sound biblical truth with the ultimate desire that the Lord will give them new life and a heart to serve Him. We serve children by providing a safe and enjoyable environment where the Word of God is taught faithfully and Christ is exalted. To accomplish this we have age appropriate classes for children in nursery through 6th grade. We also offer loving child care for infants and toddlers..

Worship Ministry

While our lyrics cover a broad variety of Scriptural topics, we continually return to God’s glory revealed in Christ’s atoning sacrifice on the cross—the gospel. Our hearts and lives have been transformed by the Savior, and we can’t help singing about what is “of first importance” (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). Like Charles Wesley, we wish we had “a thousand tongues to sing our great Redeemer’s praise.” Our prayers is that our songs we perform will produce the same desire for the glory of God in your heart.

Ministry Leader Jason Berumen


Sound And Visual Ministries

It is the goal of the Audio Visual Ministry to provide clear, intelligible and quality sound and video that is distraction free to the congregation so that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ can be glorified in worship and the ministering of His Word. A live video feed is also provided to a Multi-Purpose Room and Mom’s Nursing Room for those who are unable to fellowship in the sanctuary. Sermons and the most recent announcements are recorded and made available on the website for those who are not able to attend the service in person.

Ministry Leader Randy Kasperson


Growth Groups

Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.
1 Thessalonians 5:11

Growth Groups are smaller groups of people that meet in the homes of church members at Berean and are meant to be a time for the people of the church to discuss how to apply Scripture. Some groups discuss the Sunday sermons and some are going through books of the Bible. We highly encourage all members of Berean to participate in Growth Groups, since we need one another to grow in our walk with Christ. For more information on how to become part of a Growth Group, please contact the church office.

Reset

Re-Set seeks to fulfill the church’s role in supporting parents who are the ones God has called to be the primary disciplers of their children. This ministry exposes 7th-12th graders to a biblical worldview through open Bible teaching and provides a group setting conducive to real Christian fellowship. Teaching times aim to renew the mind with ‘gospel thinking’ that the youth might be established in the faith, complete in Christ. Parents are not only welcome but encouraged to attend.

Ministry Leader Rick Lalonde


Book Nook

The Book Nook at Berean Fellowship exists to serve our church, to encourage people to read and study the Word, and to continue to challenge and deepen their understanding of God and His grace. We try to do this by offering a selection of theologically sound books that are written for all levels of reader experience, including children.

Ministry Leader Buddy Wade


Berean Fellowship Classes

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom Colossians 3:16a
In addition to the weekly teaching in Sunday at the 10 am service, we also occasionally offer a teaching time in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) from 9am-9:40am. The Sunday school classes are meant to provide the church with additional teachings on important topics in a more interactive way. We cover a multitude of topics in these classes. If you have a topic suggestion, please let us know.

Women’s Ministry

Women’s Ministry at Berean Fellowship exists to encourage women in their worship of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We desire to help equip women through the study of Scripture and prayer, along with building relationships with other women for accountability and edification. We desire to lead women to embrace the great assurance and hope of their identity in Jesus Christ, knowing that we are Image-Bearers.

Ministry Leader Shannon Sparks


Good News Club

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations… Matthew 28:19a

We believe that outreach to the community with the gospel of Jesus Christ is an important part of church ministry. In our Good News Club, we partner with Child Evangelism Fellowship (http://www.cefonline.com/) to bring the gospel to children at nearby Joshua Hills Elementary School. This is an after-school club that meets once a week during the school year in which we sing songs, play games, and teach God’s Word to the kids. If you are interested in getting involved, please let us know.

Kitchen Ministry

The first miracle that Jesus performed was showing hospitality by changing water into wine, John Ch 2. The Apostle Paul also stressed the importance of hospitality amongst believers: "As to diligence… fervent in spirit, serving the Lord… distributing to the needs of the saints, pursuing hospitality." Romans 12:11-13. The leadership at Berean Fellowship has seen the benefits of breaking bread and Christian conversation. Because of this we provide refreshments before and after service. Then join us immediately after service for snacks and fellowship. Berean Fellowship hosts church Barbecues for fellowship, please see event calender for more details .

Ministry Leader Mike Norris


Prayer Ministry

Continue earnestly in prayer; being vigilant in it with thanksgiving Colossians 4:2

We strongly believe that praying together is one of the many ways we worship God and grow together as believers. During the time we meet, which is 9:00am-9:30am in the 1st-3rd grade children’s classroom, we pray for the church, for the church leaders, for the church ministries, for the church members, for our daily needs, and praises of what God has done in our lives. Anyone is welcome to come and pray with us, so if you have any needs you would to pray for and anything you want to thank God for, we encourage you to come to the prayer time next time you’re at Berean!
