our ministries
Worship, teaching, hospitality and ministering to kids happen on a Sunday morning, but there's a lot more that happens beyond that.
Our goal is to help our surrounding community by supporting those in need through Acts of Love, mentoring our youth or by partnering with like-minded organizations.
We are here if you need us. Feel free to contact us to know more about how we do that!

I DESERVE A DONUT
Maya RodriguesCascais
TBD -
This intends to be a wellness group with focus on the renewing of our minds through the Word of God. The theme goes beyond the food we eat addressing emotions and motives, and through Bible verses, questions and tips you will take off the lies that make you eat and put on the truth that will set you free. As you renew your mind, you’ll notice your desires changing. You’ll actually want to follow your boundaries. And that will make it easier to say no to the donut.

FINDING YOUR VOICE
Paula SilvaOeiras
TBD -
Do you like to sing? Do you want to learn more about worshiping God through song? Do you want to learn new techniques and tips to improve your gift of singing? Then this is a group for you. The idea is to gather people that are already part of the worship team at church or people that just like to sing and would like to develop this talent. We will do a different activity every week, like learning a new song together, breathing exercises, watching a tutorial video on singing or worship. Most importantly it's a great opportunity to build relationships and to encourage each other in using our talent.
