CALIFORNIA AVE. MINISTRIES WITH STAFF

 

 

California Ave. Church of Christ

Ministries

 

The purpose of these ministries. 

 

The first century church received edification and encouragement through serving others.  As we seek to duplicate the idea of service in the church, we have a number of serving ministries at California Ave.  As time passes and needs arise, we will expand our areas of ministering to meet needs.  Each member who serves in any area must realize that they must be faithful to Christ and give full support to the local congregant of Christians at California Ave.  As a  minister and fellow servant, I  look forward to serving with you.
