Here at Oldtown, everything we do is done in the light of ministry. We try to keep the concept of serving others – whether they be part of our church family, our local community, or our brothers and sisters around the world – ever-present in our minds. So much so that in early 2018, we decided to replace the term “Committee” with “Ministry” in our church vocabulary. When focusing on the work to be done for the church, it is very easy to lose sight of the reasons we’re are doing the work. This is why we feel that using the word “Ministry” instead of “Committee” is a very important change, even if it is changing only a single word.
All of the work that we do as a church is ministry, and all of us are called by Jesus to be ministers. In addition to the ministries that meet on a regular basis to carry out the work of the church, there are also a few “special” ministries we perform here at Oldtown.
