What is a ministry?

Ministry is such a simple word and yet it is so hard to find a workable definition. The essence of what ministry means is best summed up in the phrase, “Ministry is meeting people where they are at and taking them to where God wants them to be.” Sandy Lake UPC has several ministries that “meet people where they are at.” Our Educational Department is focused on reaching out to our children and young people. We also have active Music and Drama Departments. A few other ministries we have are Ladies Auxiliary, Outreach, Media & Technology, and Sandy Lake Christian Academy. You can visit each departments page by clicking the name of the department above.
