Youth Ministry

WHEELscape

When deciding upon a new name for the youth ministry, it was clear that the name would have to have relevance beyond the words themselves. What is meant by this is that the name chosen would have to satisfy two goals: describe the intentions of youth ministry at Lincoln Memorial; and describe ministry as a whole. In order to achieve this a combination of two words was needed – wheel and scape.

A wheel is “any machine, apparatus, instrument, etc., shaped like this or having a circular frame, disk, or revolving drum as an essential feature”(Dictionary.com). However, within a biblical context, in this case, wheel refers to a potter’s wheel on which clay is formed and shapened. There are many references in the Bible to the potter’s wheel and/or clay (Isaiah 29:16; 64:8; Jer. 18:1-6; Jb 33: 6; etc.). Christians are being molded into the image of Christ, transformed (2 Co. 4:2 and Rom. 8:29). The second part of the word, scape, is taken from landscape. In contrast, however, where landscape is “a section or expanse of rural scenery that can be seen from a single viewpoint” (Dictionary.com) – a place; scape in WHEELscape is a place where something is formed. For our purposes, that something is someone, more specifically youth. Therefore, WHEELscape is a place where youth are formed on the potter’s wheel. The potter being God, and the wheel being the teaching, hearing, and doing of the Word with all that our youth have to offer.

To conclude, “Let no one despise your youth [Timothy], but set the believers an example in speech and conduct, in love, in faith, in purity” (NRSV 1 Timothy 4:12). Our youth are not only an integral part of our Lincoln Memorial Family but of the body of Christ. By teaching them what it is to have faith and ways to express that faith, they will become better witnesses for our risen Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Lincoln Memorial UCC Greeters/Ushers Ministry

The mission of the Greeter/Usher ministry is to serve the Lord through serving his people.

Greeters/Ushers welcome members and guests into the sanctuary with a warm smile and a spirit of love. We provide church bulletins, assist with seating, keep the sanctuary in an orderly fashion, ensure envelopes are available and provide comfort and information to members and guests. We are committed and serve in whatever capacity is required.

The Greeters/Ushers serve the Lincoln Memorial Church to help ensure that the service flows in a decent and orderly manner. This enhances the worship experience of individuals attending the service and hearing God’s word.

Greeters/Ushers are a ministry of hospitality. It goes beyond greeting and welcoming newcomers or members; it begins in the parking lot and extends beyond the foyer or lobby of the church. We serve as an extension of the Pastor. He cannot always greet everyone at the beginning of service, but a Greeter can act in his place welcoming all those who come.

We hope that we provide a personal touch to make everybody feel welcome. A friendly smile and welcoming words greatly bless us all.

Evangelism Ministry

“Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us…”  2 Corinthians 5:20.

The ongoing goal of this ministry is a prayerful and purposeful introduction of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others who do not know him, and to invite them into our fellowship.
