At 217church we encourage everyone to join a small group for one-on-one connection and to have others walking closely beside us as we do life. Additionally, our women's ministry welcomes women of all ages 18+ to join them.
There are many opportunities for everyone to connect with a team to volunteer and support the ministries of 217church.
217youth is an environment where all students will feel welcomed and accepted. We know how to have a good time and we know how to pursue God. There will be a message straight from scripture and small group discussions on how the Word of God can be applied daily in the life of a teenager. Come be a part of God is doing at 217youth!
The 217kids team has the privilege of introducing our youngest members of our church family to Jesus. It is our prayer that each child will develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and make a profession of faith followed by baptism. As an integral member of the 217kids family, each child will be encouraged to build into the lives of their peers with the ultimate goal of sharing the love of Christ with the world around them.
By serving on the 217kids team you are changing lives by helping children and their families grow closer to Jesus. The contribution you will make is crucial to the mission of our church.
Women - 217sisters
Studying the Word. Serving our community.
217sisters is a New Jersey Christian women’s ministry created to strengthen our relationships with Christ, each other, and the people of Mercer County. All-sisters gatherings (to enrich and equip) are held once per quarter on Saturday mornings from 10 am – 12 noon.
Service evangelism (to pour out into the community through ongoing relationships) is our focus during the months in between.
217groups meet during the week to encourage and support other church members.
We follow 5 practices found in Acts 2:
SERVE: We serve our communities relentlessly to show them the love of God.
LEARN: We learn the Bible together, and we actively apply it's truths to our lives.
INVITE: We invite friends, family, co-workers, and neighbors to join us in fellowship, serving, and learning more about Jesus.
CARE: We care deeply about people. We meet each other's tangible needs, we pray for each other, and we carry each other's weights.
EAT: We simply hang out and have fun! We share a meal, engage in encouraging discussion, and serve our communities.
Our Sunday teams are a very important part of our ministry. From driving the truck with our equipment, setting up, making the coffee, welcoming our guests, doing Spanish translation and producing the media for our services.
Every Sunday about 25 dedicated individuals make our services happen. We can use your talents on one of our teams!
Knowing that it is easier to trust God in the calm than in the midst of the storm, it's no wonder the impact of ministry is often greatest when people are facing difficult life circumstances and challenges. Storms(aka, trials of many kinds) are significant as it is during times of trouble that people naturally cry out to God, examine their lives, question their beliefs, and are open and eager to experience the love of Christ. Moreover, storms are frequently what spark people's faith, reveal the extent of our rootedness, and establish our need for Jesus.
If you are called to serve others in this way, let us know!
The Worship team are believers that are called not only to worship the Lord but to facilitate the worship experience, and carry the burden of the worship life of 217church.
The team ministers through praise and worship, to encourage and lead the congregation into the presence of the Lord, and to facilitate and create an atmosphere where the presence of the Lord can dwell. Our goal is to lead people into the manifest presence of the Lord.
