Our heart is to Live Love to our community. We have several different partnerships and ministries that demonstrate how much we love our community.
Our Helping Hands team offers groceries to individuals on the third Wednesday of the month at 2pm. We provide both a bag of groceries along with a voucher for perishable items.
Our Bus Ministry provides transportation to and from our worship services for those who cannot drive and for children. If you would like to arrange a pick-up for yourself or your child please contact the church office at (618) 439-3513.
Our Jail Ministry ministers to the inmates at the Franklin County Jail by preaching and applying God’s word to the men every Tuesday at 3pm. Frequently our Women on Mission, bake cookies for the inmates.
We partner with local schools by providing backpacks and school supplies for children in need, providing volunteers for reading programs, baking cakes for teachers, and providing meals for local teachers.
We have multiple ministries to two local nursing homes and assisted-living facilities in our area. We provide both bible studies and fun events for the residents.
We continue to look for opportunities to reach out to our community and demonstrate Christian care. Some of the things we have done in the past are co-host opening day ceremonies for the Benton Area Little league, participate in the Benton Trunk or Treat at the Square, participate in parades in Benton and Sesser, host a community Block Party, host a community Living Nativity, give out free coffee and biscuits in Benton and Sesser, volunteer at Benton Park and Sesser Park and much more. We desire to help others by demonstrating compassionate care and pointing people to Jesus.
