Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. Ephesians 5:1-2 KJV

Name of Singles Ministry: Single & Satisfied
Mission: To unite believers who are in a state of singleness in order to celebrate life, hold fast to God’s promises, and continue in the good fight of faith – forsaking the world’s expectations in order to embrace God’s love and become examples of Christ within our homes, throughout our relationships, and everyday life. We will support one another in love, kindness, prayer, and accountability.
Key Scriptures:
Psalm 16:2 “I say to the LORD, ‘You are my Lord; apart from you I have no good thing.’”
Matthew 18:15 “If your brother or sister sins, go and point out their fault, just between the two of you. If they listen to you, you have won them over.”
Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
Hebrews 10: 24 – 25 “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”

At the present time Senior Saints are meeting once a month at different houses for food, fellowship and a time of prayer. We have a great time as God ministers to us in a special way and we can be great Prayer Warriors for the Kingdom of God. God is using us in a great way so that the Cathedral of Praise will continue to strive forward and be the church that we have been seeking God for.

Welcoming Committee

Simply greet our first-time guests at their home door with a loaf of bread, telling them you are from the Cathedral of Praise and letting them know we were honored to have them in service. This gesture of friendly, personal interaction flourishes a welcoming to our church body.

As a church body, our vision is evangelism and discipleship as well as spiritual growth. The Gospel of Jesus Christ may have been planted as first seed in their first visit with us. Or their seed watered. Or their seed sown. The Lord ministers to their personal need.

The Lord’s desire is to see the seed of the brokenhearted bud and blossom as He pours down His heavenly rain in our midst as they surrender to His redemptive healing grace.

Prayerfully consider participating in this vital ministry.

Because of Him,
Sherry Torres

Do not neglect to do good and share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.  Hebrews 13:16

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. …..  The king will reply,” I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.” Matthew 25:36, 40

Luke, chapter 11, verse 10: “For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.”
As an usher team member, our objective is to strive to greet and usher each person entering our Church in a way that will make that person feel highly welcome.

Matthew 28:18-20 – Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 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, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
“Therefore it is our mission to witness to all people about Jesus Christ through the ushering ministry for His glory.”

We, the C.O.P. Praise and Worship Team, aim to come together and use the musical talents that God has given us to lead people into a place of worship where they can experience the Love of God.

It is our hope that by doing this, we will help to build up leaders to go out and spread Gods word.
