The Married Couples seeks to educate, train and empower each other while applying God’s Word as it will enrich our marriages and lives.

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work: If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up! Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Focusing on the issues of the Single, Christian Woman. Empowering, educating, and training each other in using the Word that will enrich our lives. Single women are those without spouses. This includes the divorced, never-married, widows and single mothers.

“They devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” Acts 2:42-47

The Kneeling Warriors build a spiritual fortress for the protection and advancement of our members and our communities through intercessory prayer and unified fasting.

Kneeling Warriors are Prayer Warriors as we follow the example of Christ who intercedes on our behalf with God, the Father, (I Timothy 2:5), An Intercessor is one who prays on behalf of another. “Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16 (NIV)

Praise and Worship brings glory to God in corporate praise through song,

dance, Step, mime, sign, drama, music and spoken Word. “Praise the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens. Praise him for His acts of power; Praise him for his surpassing greatness. Praise him with the sounding of the trumpet, praise him with the harp and lyre, praise him with tambourine and dancing, praise him with the strings and flute, praise him with the clash of cymbals, praise him with resounding cymbals. Let everything that has breath praise the LORD. Praise the LORD.” Psalm 150

But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men. “You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16

    Epiphaneia     Chi Lambdas

Ages:  5 to 13      14 to 17 

Epiphaneia is a youth ministry committed to providing the tools and resources that will develop good Christian leadership qualities. We teach the importance of a strong prayer life; mold positive Christian attitudes and personalities and motivate our youth to witness to others about God's Love. Epiphaneia works to bring youth toward maturity in Christ, preparing them for works of service so that the body of Christ might be built up to the glory of God. ~Ephesians 4:12

Chi Lambda Junior Sorority and junior fraternity is to bring young ladies and young men towards maturity in Christ, preparing them for works of service so that the body of Christ might be built up to the glory of God. Ephesians 4:12. Our youth face many difficulties and challenges as they grow up, and these difficulties are even greater for Christians. Unfortunately, there is very little support for the youth, with both the community and church generally offering criticism rather than constructive dialogue. Youth have many questions or issues they would like to ask, but feel they do not have the opportunity or freedom to do so.

These Auxiliary programs guide and instruct the youth on an ongoing basis and provide a forum for discussions and guidance on the real issues they face. These programs are geared toward providing continuing and lasting support to the youth, while mentoring and focusing on developing life and leadership skills to be the very best they can be. In addition to mentoring, we also offer them opportunities to earn college scholarships to further their education.

The coordination of this program will be overseen by the members of Lambda Tau Upsilon Christian Sorority, Inc. and the physical execution of this program will be delegated to the members of Lambda Tau Upsilon Christian Sorority, Inc and Theta Upsilon Pi Christian Fraternity, Inc. who will serve as Mentors.
