Ministry is using my spiritual gifts to bless the church.
Key Ministries that help meet the needs within the family of First Baptist Church:
Ministry Handbook (pdf) The Ministry Handbook was prepared to help implement the First Baptist Church Ellisville vision for serving God. The purpose of this handbook is two-fold:
1. To list all of our church's ministries to show our members opportunities for their Christian service.
2. To show guests and individuals in need of Christian help available sources for Christian growth and assistance.
The Ministry Handbook is broken down into two parts; standing ministry teams and other ministry opportunities. The handbook covers the standing ministry teams' principal functions, duties, and the individual to contact. Each Ministry team is listed under the appropriate core value which that team supports.
This handbook also identifies other Ellisville Baptist Church ministry opportunities so church members and regular attendees can find a place of service for which they are suited. Each ministry opportunity includes a contact. Ministry opportunities are listed under the appropriate core value which that opportunity supports.
