CoHG Children’s Ministry is dedicated to the spiritual growth of our children, while at the same time concerned about the total growth of each child. We provide a wide range of age-related programmes and activities to lay a strong spiritual foundation for our children.
The Children’s Ministry is divided into three classes:
• The Crèche is for children from 12 months to 4 years. Here they form play groups; listen to bible stories, learn Christian songs/Rhymes, watch videos, play with toys, etc
• Our second group is the 4 to 6 year olds. Our main focus for this group is expanding on the word they learned when they were younger and introducing them to new areas of the Word.
• The third group is the 6 to 12 year olds. This is another crucial stage in a child’s development and we continue to train them in the tenets of the faith, providing scriptural references to their many questions.
YOUNG AND VIBRANT
CoHG Youth Ministry has been set up to train young people to lead the cause of Christ and to apply Christianity to every area of their lives. Our Youth Ministry seeks to help youths discover their gifts/talents, grow in life skills, develop a positive self-image, overcome prejudices, develop respect for differences, serve those in need, foster social change and to develop a personal relationship with Jesus.
The Youth Ministry is for anyone between the age brackets 13- 23. There are also planned activities where young people can come together to have fun and enjoy fellowshipping with their peers. The Youth Ministry is led by a Youth Pastor and supported by Youth Ministers (chosen from members of the Youth Church).
SPIRIT FILLED WORSHIP EXPERIENCE
Worship is an essential part of the Christian Faith and one of the ways in which We love to worship God is through music. Church music is coordinated by the Choir department. CoHG Choir is a group of church workers trained and rehearsed for the specific task of leading the songs in church services. The choir has a requisite role in church worship.
The choir has a variety of responsibilities, but their primary role is to support and enhance the congregation in singing worship songs. As such, the choir becomes an important leader in worship, guiding the congregation in prayer and praise through songs.
The Multimedia team is responsible for quality of sound and production of concepts derived from live recordings. They are accountable for the projection and amplification of every electrical appliance used during church services.
This team ensures a successful sight and sound experience for the entire congregation during services and other events.
INTERSESSORY [Add a prayer request form]
This ministry focuses on supporting the Pastorate in prayer, interceding for the church and its members. The intercessors pray concerning major church events and the weekly services. They also take prayer requests from the congregation. Members of this department set time aside to pray and fast together taking all issues and burdens before God.
The Prayer Group is effectively the engine room of the church as they work endlessly behind the scenes, praying hard for the church, the ministers, the members and whatever needs has been brought to their attention specifically
The bible says in Ephesians 6:17-18 “And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints…”
CREATE A FRIENDLY & WELCOMING ATMOSPHERE IN THE CHURCH SERVICES
The Ushering ministry is important to all who regularly attend our church and to new guests and visitors who want to be fed the Word of God without interruption or confusion. Our responsibility is to welcome, greet, assist, seat, serve and keep the facility safe and secure during worship services or events.
We have an elite group of men and women ushers who are trained and focused to achieve the needs of the church leaders and congregation in a Godly manner. We love what we do and it’s a ministry that is taken very seriously.
Although evangelism is mandatory for all believers, there is a team that is devoted to bringing the Gospel to the local community every Saturday.
Our Evangelism Ministry is the platform that enables the church to accomplish the Great Commission and obey the Great Commandment of Christ which is to both reach the ends of the earth in His name whilst and to love our neighbours as ourselves.
SERVICES TO THE COMMUNITY
This team makes it their duty to take care of non-members of the church by designing and activating projects and programmes that will take the gospel of Christ to the community whilst at the same time meeting their needs and contributing to the development of the community.
This group has been consistent in organizing laudable projects that has contributed immensely to the development of our community.
The Bible admonishes us to be diligent to present ourselves approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, handling accurately the word of truth ( 2 Timothy 2:15)
The Teaching Ministry is responsible for formulating and maintaining a program of Bible teachings including Sunday School, Believer’s Class, Baptismal Class and Workers-in-Training. This ministry ensures that church members are equipped for the work of the Kingdom. Similar to what the Priests did in the days of Nehemiah, they help the people understand the Word of God.
The Bible teaches us love our neighbours, care for widows, the elderly and our brothers and sisters in general. It is the responsibility of all of God’s children to care for those who are in need.
The welfare department’s focus is to fulfill this requirement by giving support to church members who are in need, whether it is financial support, visiting people in their homes to give them an encouraging word or by counseling or mentoring them. We are our brother’s keeper.
