Our Christian Education plays an essential role in our church ministry. Our Sunday School ministry offers classes for preschoolers to adults. Each class provides spiritual enrichment and are conducted every Sunday morning. Sunday School attendance is highly recommended and also provides a great opportunity to learn more about the word of God in a small group environment, and student questions can be addressed and answered. Sunday School provides a unique opportunity for everyone to learn, in depth, what it means to become a follower of Christ. It's in the Sunday School setting that we have the opportunity to show and share our love for the Lord. Knowing that others have faced similar problems and that they have found the answers in the Bible and in Jesus Christ, is an important part of Sunday School. Deacon Terrience D. Selmon is our Sunday School Superintendant.

An usher is equipped for his or her ministry by the gifts of the Holy Spirit. The ushers are responsible for effectively seating individuals during church service with minimal interruption. They assist with the distribution of literature within the sanctuary in a timely manner. They work closely with the deacons to create a uniform process of taking up tithes and offerings. They greet worshippers with a smile…so they will come again and worship with us.

The Bible says, “He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me. He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward”, Matthew 10:40-42.
