MINISTRIES

SERVICE FOR CHILDREN

The Bible tells us several times that it is important to behave our children in the right way, implanting Christian values, love of Christ and obedience to God. That’s why it is hard to imagine Christian church without serving children. City of Light Church has service for children in a separate hall where your children are not just looked after while you are listening to preaching but also they are implanted the smallest Christian values from the Bible, told about God in the form of simple games and receive all-around development. We are sure that the Bible is the best guide in pedagogy.

Also children have perfect possibility to find new friends with similar interests and learn how to position themselves in society from the earliest age. 

 “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”  (Matthew 19:14)

SERVICE FOR YOUTH

Teenager is a child who thinks that he is a grown-up. Exactly at this age people make a lot of mistakes that may completely change their life.

That is the reason why we have service for youth at our church. Our goal is to help the child and to direct him to the right way; support children in difficult period of their life and teach them to trust Jesus and not to give up in what the Word of God tells us. Our ministers will teach children about friendship and respect through real life examples and communication with each other. We want to help them to grow in their gifts and even to find talents in some of them and also to help them understand their uniqueness.  Your child is a gift of God and we value this gift very much.

SERVICE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

In present world young people grow faster and faster in their interests. Young people ask a lot of questions about life and how to choose the right direction in their life. Independently of how friendly generations are it is essential to pay attention to young people at the church.

That’s why we made service for young people. It is important for us that young people would receive answers to all Bible subjects in full volume and that this service would be not just cheerful and active but also informative and spiritually filled. 

FELLOWSHIP GROUPS

The Bible tells that the first church except for general services gathered together in small groups at homes: “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching Jesus as the Christ” (Acts 5:42).

We understand all the importance of fellowship groups that’s why we have this service at our church too. We gather together for more close communication, talking about the Word of God, helping each other and also for joint service to the glory of God. Here are five main goals and reasons why we come to fellowship groups:

– First goal – praying and worshiping God
– Second goal – studying the Word of God
– Third goal – serving each other with gifts and taking pastoral care of each other
– Fourth goal – true hearted fellowship in Jesus Christ
– Fifth foal – preaching the Gospel

If you want to join one of fellowship groups of our church, please write or phone us.

BIBLE COLLEGE

The church has to develop people in order that they would grow spiritually. Discipleship is the process of helping Christians in order that all of us would be more like Jesus in our thoughts, feelings and acts.

“And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Ephesians 4:11-13).

 

In order to become a worker out of just hearer we need transformation but not just information. Make the goal to reach the peaks of discipleship. In order to reach this goal you need to become a student of the Bible College where you will receive new vital spiritual food. 

SERVICE OF MERCY

Each Friday the City of Light Church has service of mercy. Here we sing and worship God, study the Bible and help people.  “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16). We are helping people in difficult life circumstances of Shevchenkovsky district. These people value any care: communication, food or just smile and acceptance. We are doing our best to give them all this to the glory of God.

 

God touches people through this service of mercy, they start to believe and their lives transform in love of our God.

We are thankful to everybody who sows time, prayers, finances for this service.  Both the one who sows and the one who reaps will rejoice.

SERVICE FOR DRUG AND ALCOHOL ADDICTED PEOPLE “WORLD WITHOUT ADDICTION”

“World Without Addiction” is service of the City of Light Church and at the same time it is charitable organization. It’s most important direction is work of our rehabilitation center with people being in prison of drug, alcohol, cigarettes and other addictions. 

“There are no “no-hopers” in this world, each person has the right to be happy” Tatiana Boiko

The rehabilitation center “World Without Addiction” started to work in May 2001. It was created with only one goal – to help everybody who desires to have freedom. We are helping those who want to have victory over these problems but can’t get it themselves, those who have desire to change their life and make it more rich, interesting and healthy. 

Rehabilitation at “World Without Addiction” goes according to the Christian program “Know the Truth” approved by the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine, adapted for our center. Our center is a charitable organization. The main directions of our center work are spiritual, psychological, social and physical rehabilitation of drug and alcohol addicted people, production of rational form of behavior based upon Christian values and also social mitigation and help in job placement assistance in post rehabilitation period.

For the time of this service existence a lot of families were restored and a lot of people were saved. Nowadays medical specialists are trying to understand the  phenomenon of effectiveness of work of Christian rehabilitation centers for drug  addicted people. In reality the secret is very simple, it can be found in the Bible: “And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Only after coming to God the person can change his nature, become new creation and that means to receive full freedom from addiction. So this secret lies in the power of God!

During the time of rehabilitation period we become so close to each other that this equals to one large and friendly family.
