There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. - Nelson Mandela

Pastor Wingard to leave Crowders Creek Church


September 15, 2013


On Thursday, September 12, 2013 the Session of Crowders Creek Arp Church held a called meeting. It had become apparent to this session that our Pastor, Rev. BenWingard needed to devote as much time as possible to the next call of his ministry. The session has offered and Rev. Wingard has accepted a leave from all Pastoral responsibilities at Crowders Creek. This was a unanimous decision by the session and was undertaken for the mutual benefit of both Rev. Wingard and the congregation. All other requirements of Rev. Wingard’s resignation will be fulfilled as approved by the congregation’s vote on September 2, 2013. Please be in prayer for Rev. Wingard and his family as they face new challenges andresponsilities. If any member of this congregation has questions or concerns on this matter or any other concern with Crowders Creek church please contact your Sheppard Group leader or any active Elder. We will be happy to address any of your concerns.

Bonclarken Weekend
August 10-12, 2012
Our annual Bonclarken Weekend is coming up in a couple of weeks.  Don’t miss out on the fun and fellowship.  There are still rooms available.  Please turn in your food donation envelope and your meal form as soon as possible.  Be sure to sign up to help with a meal.  We also welcome desserts, fruits, or vegetables from your garden.  Also, please indicate on the sign up sheet your interest in participating in any of the planned activities. 

Partners in Prayer

Crowders Creek ARP Church is beginning a new prayer support ministry in an effort to strengthen our church and lift up our pastor in prayer.  The program is called Partners in Prayer and is based on a book by John Maxwell in which he describes a prayer ministry that he has been involved in and subject to for many years.

A group of lay people agree to come together to pray for their church and pastor weekly.  They meet together once a month and agree to take turns coming to church early each Sunday and praying in the sanctuary before church for God to bless the service and be with Ben as he preaches.

We need at least 20 people who would be willing to participate so that there will be enough to set up a rotating schedule of prayer assignments.  If you are interested, please contact Pastor Ben, David Brooks or any of the Elders and let them know.

The first Partners in Prayer Ministry Meeting is scheduled for July 22nd, 2012 at 3:00 pm.  Please come if you are interested in being a part of this ministry.
