Why Serve

Serving God is one of the most important principles of the Christian faith, as believers are expected to serve the church with a joyful spirit. We are to use whatever gifts we have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

We are a community committed to following Jesus. We would love for you to come and be amongst us.

USHER BOARD MINISTRY

A church usher is a person who helps ensure a smoothly running church service and who ministers to people in a variety of practical ways.

Ushers provide an invaluable service to the local church body. In many ways, the ushers are the “face” of the church, the first ones that people see when they arrive and the last ones they see as they leave. It is important that an usher be friendly, honest, and willing to serve. It is an honorable position in the church, requiring integrity, cordiality, and wisdom.

The heart of an usher is the heart of a servant, and he does his work for his Lord Jesus. A church usher has a true love for the people of the church and a desire to promote an atmosphere of reverence and worship in the house of God.


MUSIC MINISTRY

Our purpose is to lift up OUR VOICE – that’s right – “our” as in plural and yet “voice” as in one!!! We believe that music should be Spirit-filled and Spirit-led, therefore no matter how we feel we are to usher the church body into the very presence of our Most Holy God! We are to sing praises to our God and lead His people into worship every time we gather in God’s house.


WHETSTONE KINGDOM KIDS

In today’s society ministry to children is vital, because our young people are being influenced on so many levels. And as the world continues to remove the ancient landmark by denying the absolute truth of the word of God and by eradicating the things of God from public places our children and young people are in dire need of the covering of God’s grace & mercy. Therefore as iron sharpens iron…Our goal here at Whetstone Ministries is to partner with parents to ignite and nurture the faith of their children through the teaching of God’s word and to continually cover them in the prayers of the saints.


AUDIO & VISUAL MINISTRY

Sight, sound, and temperature are of the utmost importance to every service held at Whetstone Ministries and it is the responsibility of our Audio/Visual Ministry Team to “set” and “control” the “atmosphere” during our services by making sure that all these elements are monitored at a high level of efficiency.


SOCIAL MEDIA MINISTRY

Social Media provides us the unique opportunity to engage & connect to the world daily in such a way that we can truly be the “Whetstone” in the lives of ppl whereby our presence in these mediums can truly “sharpen” & “make one’s life more effective” as we continue with our mission of advancing the Kingdom of God. It also enables any of our ministries, regardless of member size or financial situation an opportunity to take the gospel to the world.

As the Director of Social Media at Whetstone Ministries it is very important that it is understood that there is a vast difference between being an individual on social media and representing the church on social media. When on Social Media for the church EVERYTHING must be done with OUR VISION & MISSION in mind…


HOSPITALITY MINISTRY

The Hospitality team is here to HELP bring to pass the vision of the Pastor which is to win souls by seeking to Help, Encourage, and Love People through acts of Service. The purpose of the Hospitality Ministry is to bring fellowship to the House of God. At Whetstone our task is to help our guests and family feel the love of God by truly welcoming them into God’s house through friendly and authentically gracious service. The service provided may involve a special fellowship dinner for new members once or twice a year, visitation and personal ministry, organizing Fundraisers, hosting our monthly friends & family fellowship dinners and much more. If you a person who love to help others this is the Ministry just for you!


WOMEN OF WORTH MINISTRY

It is our desire through Our Women of Worth Ministry to reach, teach and support the women of our church and community so that each woman will come to know Christ, abide in Christ, and serve the church and community thru Christ. Through this ministry which is under the leadership of Pastor Trinisia McRoy we cover a variety of topics including healing, marriage, the role of the Christian woman, the need for charity, forgiveness, pain, loss, divorce, etc. We recognize the need for Christian women to spend time with each other and because of the commonality of our concerns we can share our deepest feelings with each other in an environment which is conducive to transparency and honesty. As iron sharpens iron, we recognize that ministry should be readily available at every stage of a woman’s life, therefore this ministry is designed to meet the needs of women regardless of what stage or season of life they may currently be in. The service provided may involve a special fellowship dinner for new members once or twice a year, visitation and personal ministry, organizing Fundraisers, hosting our monthly friends & family fellowship dinners and much more. If you a person who love to help others this is the Ministry just for you!
