Reducing the Risk Class

JCC values our kids, teens, and at risk adults and take every precaution to ensure that they are protected. So, in addition to a ministry workshop JCC also offered a Reducing the Risk seminar, also taught by Vanda Hoecher, for those individuals interested in working with children, teens, and at risk/vulnerable adults at JCC. This class is a requirement for anyone desiring to work with any of the above mentioned groups in addition to the other requirements of church membership and passing a background check.

Reducing the Risk 2


JOY Giver Ministry Workshop

Someone once said “In order to feel a part you have to be a part” This is a truth we’ve seen played out over the years. Those who feel most satisfied and connected to a church family are the ones who are most actively taking part in the church body through some form of ministry. Ministering together with others builds relationships, and fosters camaraderie and a sense of belonging.  To enable individuals to become more connected to the JCC family JCC held a ministry workshop taught by Vanda Hoecher entitled Joy Giver Workshop on the 21st. This workshop is designed to introduce interested individuals to the various ministries available at JCC that they canvandas class 11-21-15 c become involved in. If you missed this class we now have the audio and written version of the class available here on the blog. Please avail yourself of this great opportunity for ministry preparation, and get involved today.

We must decide if we want to be a spectator or a participant. Every church goer has a choice to make. He can park in his usual spot in the church parking lot, make his way to a comfortable seat in a favorite row, watch a good service, chat with friend and then go  home OR he can throw himself into an adventure by rolling up his sleeves, joining a team of like-minded servant, and help build the local church God called him to be a part of.”

It is our sincere desire that you choose to be a part of the growing ministry family at JCC.
