WORSHIP & MUSIC:

ministry-music

Worship and Music are the cornerstones of our church through which we offer appreciation, praise, prayer, love, glory and honor to God, and grow closer to Him through Bible-centered messages.  Our services are carefully planned, and may include our choir, ensembles, quartets, trios, duets, soloists, and drama.  Guest singing groups, musicians and soloists are always welcome.

Our 8:30 Blended Service features a praise team that leads the congregation in Praise and Worship Music.  Our 10:00 Traditional Service uses well-known worship songs from a songbook.  Our 10:45 Live! Services features a full live band and enhanced technology features. Whatever your taste in music, you’re sure to enjoy our services.

MISSIONS:

ministry-missionsSCWCC has a strong commitment to missions.  Currently 16% of church income is designated to Missions.

We partner with missions and missionaries overseas, in Africa and South America, in the Muslim world, and Native American communities in Arizona.

The Missions Committee stays in close touch with the missions and arranges visits by them to the church when available.  In addition, local area missions are supported by work teams, food and clothing drives, and special projects as needed.

SCWCC, through its missions outreach, takes seriously the Lord’s command to “go into all the world and preach the Gospel.”

Carol Windus, Ministry Leader

MEN’S MINISTRY:

The mission of this God-loving, good-natured group of men is to provide outreach to the Sun City West Christian Church (SCWCC) congregation, the Sun City West community, and the missions supported by SCWCC.  They assemble once a month except for June, July and August, at a breakfast meeting (prepared by two of the men) to discuss successes, current projects and future plans that fall within their mission statement.  Two major programs to which men have pledged their time and efforts are:

The “Member Assistance Program” provides men who can make minor home repairs, home maintenance or yard work to those who are not able physically or financially to perform this work.

The “Member Transportation Program” provides transportation to/from medical appointments, pharmacies, grocery stores, financial institutions, church events or similar transportation needs.

The Men’s Fellowship/Ministry is not all work and no play.  The men have attended a variety of events of interest to men such as auto and air shows, museums, sporting events, and just good old men talk.

Come join us in the Lord’s work and in the love of His people.

Mike Willcox, Ministry Leader
