“Discover Your Unique D.E.S.I.G.N. for Ministry!” You are needed in ministry ( I Corinthians 12:20, 27). A church grows when it follows the command of Christ to WIN the LOST to CHRIST and then make those believers into disciples of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20). If we are to grow spiritually, the long time disciple and the new believer, must engage continually in winning the Lost and making them into disciples. Believers build the Church! A church with growth and balance do the following – Enlist, Engage, Edify and Evangelize. The Bible reveals that the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4, 8; 2:1-4) is continuing the work of building the Church the Christ began (Matthew 16:18) AND we are laborer together with God in this building task (I Corinthians 3:9). Where are you in the process? Are you able to share the Gospel with others with confidence? Members have “right and privileges,” but MEMBERS also RESPONSIBILITIES. Join us in BTU, at 5:50-7:30PM every Sunday evening. You are NEEDED in Ministry (I Corinthians 12:20, 27-31) If transportation is needed, please call the Church Office 216.231.0408 before 4:00PM on Friday

Director: Sister Marion Blake

Secretary: Sister Luretha Grills
