Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Church members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, greeting visitors, and preparing an activity for children.


Mission Outreach

FIFTH AVENUE is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in SENDING OUT mission-minded individuals throughout our community and also support missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Each year we purposely plan into our event schedule, outreach opportunities around Lancaster so we can connect with others for Christ.  
In addition to our local effort, we graciously give between $20,000-$25,000 annually to support both local and global missions. The missionaries are located in —India, Nigeria,Mexico, Haiti, El Salvador, Cuba, Navajo Nation, and much more. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.



God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in a special choir that occasionally put on performances.. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God. If you have a gift and can play a musical instrument, you are encouraged to use it.

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of this church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. In the future, all of our weekly sermons will be uploaded to our website in audio format. We also maintain an active Facebook page  for additional church communication. If you have computer knowledge and a passion for excellence in technology, we can use your help.

We have an excellent core of individuals who work with our children on Sunday mornings during both our Sunday School hour and our worship hour. If you have a passion to serve Christ by teaching children, we would love to see you use this gift. Children need stability today! Why not help them become stable by assisting in laying a great foundation for their spiritual lives.


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. Our Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, we encourage you to pray is for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, you are encouraged to pray for your pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. 

First Impressions
One of the most important ministries we offer is our first impressions ministry. Studies show that a visitor will decide within the first 10 minutes of walking on our campus as to whether they will return. That’s why we need people who understand this and have a passion for making our guests feel at home. If you would like to become a part of this team, contact Elizabeth Edwards. Her number is in your church directory.
