Praise and Worship ministry

Psalm 22:3 But thou art holy, O thou that inhabits (or is enthroned upon) the praises of His people.

James 4 : 8 Draw nigh to God, and He will draw nigh to you.

Pastoral Care

Pastoral care has at its very core the love and concern for the salvation of humanity and the ultimate goal of the formation of Christ in each person. Galatians 4:19 “My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you.”
Therefore, the greatest model of pastoral care is Christ himself. Everything is to be interpreted through the Word of God.

Local Mission's Outreach

We have chosen to partner with Citygate Lancaster, Ephrata, and Columbia for our local mission outreach.
Citygate’s heart is to release the kingdom of God through prayer, serving, worship, equipping and justice.
It is a place that beats with God’s heartbeat for the lost, the broken, the weary and the hurting.

CWI Women's Ministry

Mission statement for CWI Women’s Ministry: Our purpose is to offer women of all ages quality opportunities for personal growth and ministry. To encourage fellowship, discipleship and the demonstration of the unconditional love of Jesus.

Leadership Training School

The Leadership Training School is designed to create lifelong learners. We offer men and women who want to serve God, the quality training they deserve. The Bible way of ministry is discipleship, (Matthew 28:19,20; 2 Timothy 2:2), emphasizing on-the-job training, (Mark 3:14,15). We believe growth and training should be a part of life.

Young Couples + Families Life Group

Whether you’re engaged, married, or a parent of children, The Young Adults and Families Life Group is your ministry.

Youth Impact

Raising up a generation to use their INFLUENCE to MAKE DISCIPLES and fulfill their PURPOSE in the AUTHORITY given to them through CHRIST JESUS by abiding in His TRUTH.


We are a Great Commission focused church. The last instruction Jesus gave his disciples was “Go, and make disciples”…locally and abroad (Matt. 28:19-20 and Acts 1:8).

  What does that mean? It means encountering people for the purpose of bringing them into relationship with the Father, to disciple and equip them to fulfill God’s plan for their life.

Home Groups

“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 approaching” Hebrews 10:24,25
