Career Development
First Saturdays, 8:30 am, Room 325
The Career Development Ministry (CDM), is composed of recruiting and human resources
professionals who provide career development information and support to individuals
seeking employment or a career change. The general public is welcome to attend our events.
The CDM desires to encourage, equip and empower participants to land the right job that
complements their background and experience. We provide tools through workshops that
focus on on-line job searches, resume development, networking, pay negotiations, and
interviewing techniques for private and federal sector jobs. We encourage the sharing of
employment information, ideas and resources.
Christian Education
Christian Education offers classes throughout the church calendar year that are biblically based,
real and relevant in meeting the needs of the congregants to mature in their relationship with
God and with others. The goal is to “Build Disciples to Win the World for Christ.”
Cub Scouts
(Boys – Grades 1-5: ages 6–10.5)
Cub Scouts is a fun and educational program where boys learn the basic principles of
scouting. The Cub Scouts program provides a positive place where boys can enjoy safe,
wholesome activities, focusing on building personal character, improving physical fitness,
learning practical skills, and developing a spirit of community service.
Culinary
The purpose of the Culinary Ministry is to provide food services to the Alfred Street church
family and guests. It is the aim of the ministry to abide by Safe-Serve food regulations and
maintain an atmosphere of Christian hospitality for approved church functions and served in
a Christian hospitable environment. The ministry is scripturally guided by Romans 12:9–13
“Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual
affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the
Lord. Rejoice in your hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs
of the saints, extend hospitality to strangers.”
Decorations
The Decorating Ministry is responsible for decorating the church for the seasons, holidays
and other special occasions to create a warm and welcoming church atmosphere. Flowers
and displays erected over the baptism pool, window vestments, and other displays convey
the season or event. We use specific colors to adorn the sanctuary to let worshippers know
what season or festival on the church calendar is being celebrated: black cloths represent
death and mourning; white cloth reflects the miracle of renewed life; red symbolizes the
blood of Jesus, and green symbolizes eternal life.
