Halftime Men’s Ministry

halftime-650x200

What a team does at halftime can change the outcome of their game. We can experience a similar change when we come off the playing field of life and into Halftime.

Let’s get back to the playbook of God’s winning strategies. Bandage up those weak areas. Make adjustments and get stronger players alongside us. Get a fresh breath of wind from the Holy Spirit. Take a refreshing drink of the living water of God’s Word. Hear the inspirational vision of the Head Coach.

Then we head can back out to the next half with a brotherhood of Christ-like men around us, changing the trajectory of our game with a real shot at winning as men, husbands, fathers and influencers in life. This is Halftime.

Date: 2nd Saturday of the month
Time: 7:00-8:30am
Curriculum: (Current) {RE}DEFINED series – This is an in-depth study of how God has uniquely wired each of us. This wiring directly impacts our relationships with Him, with our family, in our work environment and all of life. The study will not only give us a better understanding of ourselves but also help us interact with others around us in ways that reflect Jesus accurately and effectively.

Treasure Seekers meets September through May on Wednesday nights 7:00-8:00 pm.

This is an exciting time for kids ages 5-12. The night is filled with fun praise songs, skits, games, weekly memory verses, videos and more. The program incorporates fun and instruction in a way that makes learning the bible an exciting adventure for kids.

Kids can even earn “Treasure Bucks” each week for various tasks such as attendance, bringing a bible, bringing visitors, memorizing scripture and wearing their Treasure Seekers t-shirt. These “bucks” can be exchanged for prizes on the Store Night which will be opened the last Wednesday night of each month.

We believe that God will guide, protect, and encourage our children with these scriptures they have treasured in their hearts.

The goal of the Nursery Ministry at Door of Life Church is to minister the love of God to babies, toddlers and/or preschoolers. Our volunteer team works to pay attention to the development of the whole child: spiritually, physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally.

A check-in process is in place to provide safety and structure. Please ask a volunteer for assistance with your child.

The Worship Team at Door of Life Church facilitates the music for all services. Their goal is to bring honor and recognition to God through expressions of worship in singing and playing music with passion, excellence and help from the Holy Spirit. They are intent on developing the gifts in other worshippers and providing those with opportunities to use their gifts as a part of the team.

Myanmar (Burma)
Members of Door of Life have supported the orphanage of over 165 children in Myanmar for several years. Funds have been sent to Myanmar for their annual Christmas party, the only day the Burmese can evangelize and share the message of Jesus. Mona Christensen, a Door of Life member has traveled to Burma several times since 2002, teaching at an orphanage worker conference, assisting with children’s ministry, worship and sewing ministries at the orphanage.

This global outreach to Myanmar is facilitated through the ministry of Going Global.

Andaman Islands
Door of Life provided four sewing machines so that the church’s widows and orphan girls could learn how to sew. Mona Christensen traveled to the islands in 2011 to facilitate the sewing ministry and was blessed to teach for a widows conference of over 200 women. The greatest need is completion of the orphanage building that is needed to accommodate approx. 100 children.

This global outreach to the Andaman Islands is facilitated through the ministry of Going Global.

Door of Life Church is involved in the Bridges ministry. Bridges is an organization of Americans living in Door County, who volunteer to reach out and provide friendship, assistance, and helpful services to the international student – workers who come to Door County. Most are here for the summer, but a few come during the winter.

Bridges are sponsored by five churches in “Northern Door”, because they believe that they have a Christian duty to reach out and provide friendship and help to young people who visit our area from other countries.

The services of Bridges are provided for free, at no cost. Their programs and experiences over the past 15 years have brought them many friendships which continue today.

More information about Bridges is available on their website.
