Our ministry focuses first and foremost on Jesus Christ and our relationship with Him, then looking toward our relationship with our fellow man within the love of Jesus Christ. In keeping with this theme, we adopted “Lean on Me” as a kind of class anthem. This spirit has continued for some years because the song not only echoes Christ’s call and reassurance to us but also our duty and honor to serve and fellowship together. We carry out this ministry through Sunday School, retreats, fellowships, Bible Studies and being a help to each other in trying times. “Forgetting what is behind and straining towards the goal to win the prize for which God has called me Heavenwards in Christ Jesus” Phil 3:13-14 NIV
