"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
There is a world waiting on us to bring the hope and love of Jesus to them.
So find your mission and let's get going! Your life will never be the same.

Faith Night
Faith Night Facebook Page

Faith Night is a ministry started by Robert and Jamie Gemmill.  They work hand in hand with UCPSC, ministering to adults with disabilities.  The people at Faith Night have an opportunity to build relationships with these men and women through outings, games, and fun activities together.  Their vision is to shine the light of Jesus so that the tenants and the overseers have an opportunity to hear about and know Jesus.  They meet every Tuesday from 6:30 – 7:30 PM at Willow Ridge in rooms 102-104.

How can I get involved?  Just come and join in.  No matter your level of comfort around adults with disabilities, there is a place for you to serve.  Come and observe, hand out food, or interact one on one.  This is a great opportunity for families to serve together.  Each week people of all ages come and help.

153 Ministries

153 Ministries is a ministry devoted to meeting physical needs of the homeless men and women of Columbia so that they can meet their spiritual needs as well.  Scott Shull has taken this ministry and has scaled it to serve an average of 150 plates of food a week, 52 weeks a year to those who are homeless.  They rely on the financial gifts of churches and volunteers to stay up and running.  Each week as they serve food, they have opportunities to pray for and pray with each of these men and women.  They offer up a time of worship and a time of teaching the Bible.

How can I get involved?
•  Help prep on Wednesday afternoons, serve Wednesday nights, or clean up later on Wednesday nights.
•  Donate canned goods or fresh fried chicken.
•  Pray for financial, material, and spiritual support.
