Christian Education Director (including Youth Ministry)   402-564-8463
or 402-564-8362 (OC)
We typically have fifty youth participating in our five youth groups meeting at the Outreach Center, but it is a large space. So we have room for more youth grades 1 - 12. Groups include youth fellowship, choir, and talent troupe. For boys and girls in all groups.
Pastor Joe Krepel
IGNITE Alternative Gathering and Pastor of Outreach   402-564-8463
or 402-564-8362(OC)
We have an exciting alternative praise gathering called "Ignite On Sunday Night". See me if you are interested in helping with setup, technology, music, worship planning, praying, publicity, etc.This is a more informal approach to worship and fellowship. Why alternative? -- because we believe Jesus is reaching new people thorough this format for making disciples.
Jason Rosenkranz
Chair, "Food for Thought" Weekend Food Backpack Program 
There are four ways you can participate: ordering/unloading food, packing
food bags, delivering food bags to schools, and donating on our website or mailing a donation to APATT, PO Box 1590, Columbus, NE 68602-1590.  A Place at the Table, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation in the State of Nebraska (Parent Organization). This outreach is a response to Matthew 25:35a.

Group Contact for Quilting Ministry
We are a small group (welcome more quilters) that meet on Tuesdays at 9:00 AM. We make quilts for the needy here and elsewhere, and in other compassionate situations. Occasionally we make quilts for auction or other ministry fundraising.
