MINISTRIES 

At Ignite Kids our goal is to create an environment where kids can learn about Jesus in a fun and exciting way. Our heart is for them to Encounter Jesus and Ignite a passion so they live their life impacting the Kingdom of God. Children from Kindergarten – 5th grade are welcome to join us in worship, the Word and activities that point them to Christ. We pray that these children go out in our community with a hunger to reach their family, friends and schools for Jesus.
First Encounters Nursery Ministry provides a place for your child to attend while you attend “BIG” church!  During Nursery/Preschool Class, your child will learn about and experience God’s love for them through age appropriate lessons, all while having a fun time hanging with their buddies, eating yummy snacks and making awesome crafts to bring home to you! Nursery & Preschool Class is offered during every service at EC.
Encounter Student Ministries is designed for all students 6th-12th grade. Throughout our service our goal is to lead our students to a life-changing encounter with Christ. Through worship, the Word and fun, we aim to teach our students how to live a victorious lifestyle. We strive to set ourselves apart from the world (Romans 12:2) while creating a family of brothers and sisters in Christ. We are a generation rising up to set a new standard, disciple others, and most importantly reach the lost.
Service time for Encounter Student Ministries is 6:30 PM on Wednesday nights. We also have monthly activities where we just hang out, have fun and get to know each other better.
Whether it’s at a Saturday morning men’s breakfast, fishing, golfing, or camping trip, men can find friendship, challenge, and encouragement through the Encounter Church Men’s Ministry.
We want to help build men who walk in spiritual authority, worship, pray, build relationships and encourage one another as we face the issues of life.
Encounter Women’s Ministry is a wonderful place to get involved, if you’re a woman, of course! When women get together, there’s guaranteed to be a party! We have so much fun…whether it’s in a serious setting such as a Bible study, out to eat at a restaurant, or at a planned party event, it’s a blast! The Women at EC get together once a month for an activity.
This ministry is designed for women to form life-long bonds with other women. As we gather to study, pray, fellowship and laugh, we grow stronger as a mighty army of women who have the ability to change the atmosphere around us. As the old adage goes, “when momma’s not happy, nobody’s happy.” It is of the utmost importance for us women to be able to pull on “the joy of the Lord” in our everyday lives for strength, and for help in navigating our family day-to-day, creating an atmosphere of victory, no matter what!
The Couples Ministry of EC exists to provide fellowship and support for couples who are all trekking through this life. Everybody needs someone! Once a month, the couples of Encounter Church are invited to gather together for a night of fun, food and fellowship, with childcare provided. This ministry will also include special events, occasions and/or meetings, as it continues to expand. Not only is it our desire to see lasting friendships formed, but that each husband and wife will grow in their relationship with each other, and that their marriage will become stronger through their relationship with God, and through His love and plan for their family. It’s a good life, and God wants you to live it to the fullest. It is possible!
Encounter YA is about equipping and empowering young adults, ages 18-29, to expand the kingdom of God through weekly events and relationship building.
It is no secret that worship is close to the heart of God and that God inhabits the praises of His people! At Encounter Church, you will find our worship to be presence-driven! What does that mean? To be presence-driven is simply that…to be driven by His presence. In Exodus 33:15, Moses and the Lord were having a conversation. Moses says, “If Your Presence does not go with me, do not carry us up from here!” WOW… enough said.
We pursue God’s presence. For in HIS presence, there is joy, there is peace, there is rest, there is love, there is life that never ends. Who doesn’t want that?
