Monacrest Free Methodist Church
 
Our Vision:

     To be a Bridge of Hope to the Beaver Valley
 
Our Purpose:
 
     The purpose of the Monacrest Church is to develop GC2 Christians.
 
Meaning of GC2:
 
     1st G - Practicing the Great Commandment – Matthew 22:37-39
 
37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’
 
 
     2nd G - Participating in the Great Commission – Matthew 28:18-20
 
18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
 
Our Core Ministries:
 
1.  The Preaching of the Word of God:
 
2 Timothy 4 (NIV)
1 In the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who will judge the living and the dead, and in view of his appearing and his kingdom, I give you this charge: 2 Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction.
 
2.  Excellence in Worship:

John 4
23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.

3.  Premier Children and Youth Ministries:
 
Matthew 19
14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
 
1 Timothy 4
12 Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
 
4.  God’s Choice:
(a Ministry for those with special needs and their families/care givers)

5.  Small Groups:
 
Acts 2
46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
