Our Ministries

Our Church Ministries exist to equip members to transform lives and communities through Christ's love by actively pursuing authentic, healthy relationships. Below is  a list of our ministries.

“Building bridges of hope” is the mission statement of the Seventh-day Adventist Church’s Communication Department. We work toward this goal by reaching out to diverse church audiences - both internally and externally - through many avenues of communication. Creating informative and intuitive web sites, updating social media sites, and writing news stories and press releases are some of the ways we share our message. Through our work, we foster a clearer image of the church, its mission, activities and witness, so that many will become followers of Christ and members of His church.

Community Services are the hands and feet of Jesus ministering to the needs of those who surround us. The purpose of this holistic ministry is not only to proclaim the Good News but to demonstrate the love of God to people who are in need.

“The Adventist interests in propagating education was founded upon the philosophy that students at all levels of schooling possess individuality and should be educated to use their God-given capacities to become individuals of principle, qualified for any position of life”.

“Seventh-day Adventists have embraced the philosophy that education should be redemptive in nature, for the purpose of restoring human beings to the image of God, our Creator. Mental, physical, social, and spiritual health, intellectual growth, and service to humanity basically form the core of values that are essential aspects of the Adventist education philosophy”.

The Health Ministries Department of the Mt. Vernon Seventh day Adventist church seeks to enhance the kingdom of God by promoting the principles of health as taught in the Bible and the inspired writings of the spirit of prophecy. We remind our church members and community that their bodies are a gift from God and a temple in which he dwells. We should therefore do all we can to glorify God by doing our best to live in optimum health in all aspects of their lives which includes our physical, spiritual, social, emotional and intellectual health.

The Music Ministry seeks to utilize the power of worship through music. We bring an offering of praise, fight discouragement, and teach truth through a variety of music. The Music Ministry aims to strengthen worshipers and to nurture the membership and all who visit in preparation for Christ’s soon return. Each service, our Praise Team and other music ensembles, prepare the hearts of the congregation to receive a word from the Lord. We enlist various vocalists and musicians dedicated to utilize their talents for the glory and honor of God.

We cherish prayer and know that “apart from him, we can do nothing.” Our desire is to be a praying church, not just a church that prays. In other words, we want prayer to be integral to the very fabric of our identity. We want to pray at all times, not just when things go wrong.

Funds belonging to the auxiliary organizations of the local church

The key focus of the AYS Ministry (Adventist Youth Society) is the salvation of our youth through Jesus Christ. Our goal is to lead the youth to understand their individual worth while assisting in the discovery and development of their spiritual gifts and abilities. We seek to equip and empower the youth for a life of service to God through the church and the community. We are motivated to integrate our youth into all aspects of church life and leadership so they may be full participants in the programs of the church. We encourage the youth to participate and lead out in youth meetings, church-wide youth days, recreational outings, community outreach projects, musical programs, and other events.
