Green Bay Seventh-day Adventist Church

Ministries


For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

Mark 10:45
 

It is our sincere desire that you get connected, and one of the best ways to do that is through serving. Everyone can get involved and join our church family by volunteering in any capacity. God designed each of us for a purpose, and we went to help you find that purpose.

Below you'll find links to various ministries and other volunteering opportunites. Check them out to see if any of them might be a place for you. If not, maybe you'd like to start your own ministry.


Street Team

Phone:

What?

Street Team is a ministry serving bread and soup to the hungry on Sabbath afternoons. We also organize a sleeping bag collection when St. John's shelter closes in April and people need to find places to sleep outside.

When?

1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month from 2:30 p.m. until 5:00 p.m.

Where?

We meet at the Fellowship Hall of church and then go to the Brown County Library.

Why?

Because many people in Green Bay have to stay outside all day and eat whatever they can get. This ministry provides them with at least one warm meal that day. We also give them warm clothes and toiletries when available. And because Jesus said, “Unto the least of these...”

Items Needed:

 Socks  Gloves/Mittens  Hats  Underwear  Long underwear  Coats  Toiletries  Donations  Hot Soup (a big 6-quart crockpot full — call Kiana ahead of time to let her know)  Your smiling face.  Prayer that the people we meet will be blessed.

School Website

The Adventist Junior Academy (AJA) has been serving the Green Bay community and educating students since 1943 and has been at its current location since 1958. As part of the Adventist educational school system, our school is part of the second largest denominational school system in the world.

AJA is a Christian school environment that is focused on upholding Christian ethics and is centered on the belief that the knowledge of God is the beginning of wisdom. We teach that a relationship with God is the basis for our fellowship with one another, that the Bible is the infallible Word of God, and that each student is created by God and is blessed with talents and gifts that are uniquely their own.

Community Services

In Transition

Contact:

(church office)

At our Community Service Center we volunteer to display and disperse donated items that they be free and accessible to those who need them. We also offer “emergency food” at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and we complement Spirit of Giving with food boxes. We adhere to God's admonitions of Matthew 25:35-40 and James 2:15-17. Donations can be left in a large drop-off container by the Community Services entrance.

We are located next to the Fellowship Hall across from the church, and we are open Wednesdays from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Prayer Chain

Contact: Nancy Peotter

The purpose of the Prayer Chain is for an individual to ask for prayer by the group members on behalf of family, self, friends (with their permission), and situations like natural disasters that need to be offered to the Lord. All prayer requests are sent via e–mail to the group members. The “Prayer Warriors” then daily offer prayer for all requests.

Please send your specific request to .

Youth Group

Pastor Kevin Moreno

Contact: Pastor Kevin Moreno
Cell Phone: (317) 437-3246

There are various activities that our church provides for the youth. There is a weekly Sabbath School class prior to church every Sabbath focusing on the needs of our youth. During the course of each month we usually have special Friday and Saturday night programs for the youth. The Friday night programs are spiritually-based activities where the youth can share with each other in an open Christian environment.

Some examples of our Saturday night youth activities are things such as mini golf, table games, pizza parties, etc. Periodically through the year we hold special events such as youth rallies that allow youth from all over the state to join us in fun, fellowship, and the worship of God.

Youth events are advertised on the church calendar, so check back for our upcoming events. If you're the parent of youth, please send your kids. If you are a youth, we would love to have you attend our Sabbath School, Friday night programs, or our youth parties. We look forward to seeing you.

Rita's Phone: (920) 499-3023


Check out our healthful recipes.

The Health Ministry's goal is to follow Christ's holistic ministry on Earth by attending to the whole person—physically, emotionally, and spiritually. This is accomplished in part by education and encouragement in promoting:

  • Prayer
  • Balanced diets
  • Healthy life choices
  • Collaboration with like-minded partners
  • Regular health screenings
  • Exercise

Our desire is for our congregation and community to experience a healthful and abundant life and to share these divine principles of health with others in order that all may partake of the bountiful life God has intended.

Prison Ministry

Contact: Church Office
Phone: (920) 530-8220

Prison Ministry facilitators correspond by mail with prisoners throughout the country, providing them with Bible lessons, providing various services, and praying for them.

Through the mail our students receive:

  • A personal facilitator to answer questions, encourage, inspire, support, and pray for them.
  • Bible studies, a KJV Bible, books, and materials that share, explore, and study fundamental Bible beliefs.
  • An opportunity to purposefully assess their beliefs and choose if they want to commit to following Jesus.
  • An ongoing invitation to submit prayer requests to be forwarded to our prayer team.

We also share any current offers we are aware of that students can request and receive from other prison ministries that are also grounded in following Bible fundamental beliefs.

Our Needs:

Your fervent and continuous intercessory prayers four our students and our ministry.

At times we need more teachers/facilitators. We would love to have an established standby list of people ready for the call when the requests come in. Have you thought about reflecting God's light in a world dimly lit? Please prayerfully consider and assess whether you are being called to this amazing and rewarding work for the Lord.

We also need you to assess whether you are willing to take on the responsibility and the follow-through necessary for you to be a helpful part of this team.

When we assign students, we provide a teacher binder with answer key, checklist, guidelines, and organizational helps. We need any new facilitators to work with at least 10 students.

Most mail takes four to six weeks to cycle back to use; however, some students cycle more quickly. You must also be able to check weekly to see if any mail has come in for you, have your mail picked up weekly, and weekly attend to your mail that is received by praying for, responding to, and sending the mail back in a timely manner.

Our Facilitators:

Our facilitators are Bible-based Christians with a goal of helping students understand the Good News of the Gospel right from the pages of God's Holy Word by prayerfully inviting the Holy Spirit to guide them in their correspondence with each student. They desire to have students build a relationship with a loving God and are interested in assisting students in finding the salvation so freely offered because of Christ's sacrifice on Calvary. Our facilitators are ready to help students understand and make the necessary preparation to meet Jesus when He returns.

Please let us know if you have an interest in this ministry.

Testimonials:

Jim: "I just want to thank you for the studies. God is so good. I am in total awe of His faithfulness and love. These studies have, since I started them, always found me right at the place the subjects are on. I thank God for this ministry. I pray it receives all the support it needs to continue the work of the great commission."

Wende: "Thank you for not giving up on me."

Laura: "You're a blessing. I appreciate your time, your prayers, your love. Most of all, your obedience to our Lord. We serve an amazing God."

Marilyn: "Thank you for everything. Please keep praying for my family and myself."

David: "I would like to thank you and the whole church for all the prayers and blessings. I thank you for the books and also the Bible. I appreciate everything."

John: "These studies made me think differently than what I had thought. I guess doing these studies does change some thoughts and helps understand others."

Your Financial Support:

We need your financial support for the costs of basic materials, Bible studies, postage, envelopes, paper, and ink.

If you feel impressed to contribute to facilitate in the meeting the urgent call to share the Gospel invitation and the Three Angels Message to those in need, there is a line on our tithe and offering envelopes that says "Other," where you can write Prison Ministry along with the amount of your offering. We invite you to prayerfully give as the Holy Spirit leads.
