Shining Light Ladies
Let your Light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16
   Our Ladies Ministry offers a time for women to grow spiritually, serve faithfully and strengthen their love for Christ, the church and one another. The ladies meet for a time of fellowship the second Tuesday night of each month. They have a life group Sunday mornings at 9:30am and have various activities throughout the year. Come be a part of the Shining Light Ladies Ministry as they, together, strive to be a Shining Light in their homes and community
Men’s Ministry
He hath showed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God? Micah 6:8
   The Men’s Ministry is to encourage, equip, and energize the men of Milan Friends Church and our local community to become all God has purposely designed each man to be through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, discipleship, leadership, and obedience to the inerrant Word of God. The men meet the last Saturday of the month for a prayer breakfast, their life group meets on Sunday mornings at 9:30 for a time of Bible study, and they have various activities scheduled throughout the year. Come be a part of our Men’s Ministry as they seek to become the leaders, husbands, and fathers God intended for them to be.   
Senior Saints
And even to your old age I am he; and even to hoar hairs will I carry you: I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.
Isaiah 46:4
   The Senior Saints Ministry is one of fun and fellowship, witnessing and worship. The goal of this ministry is to assist the senior citizens of Milan Friends Church and the community spiritually, physically, and emotionally with Tender Loving Care. The Senior Saints meet throughout with year and enjoy their time of fellowship with one another. 
 Community Food Pantry
For the poor shall never cease out of the land: therefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt open thine hand wide unto thy brother, to thy poor, and to thy needy, in thy land.
Deuteronomy 15:11  
  Our church has had a ministry of providing supplemental food to those in need for many years. The third Saturday of the month, from 9-11am we offer the needy of our community some much needed help in the area of staple food provision. Part of service to the Lord is helping those in need, and this is one way our church does this.
Evangelistic Outreach
And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mark 16:15
   One of the most important values of this church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads across borders to every nation.  The evangelistic outreach ministry goes out and witnesses to the lost, hurting, and confused in the community of Milan one Saturday a month. This ministry is always in need of more willing servants; true is God’s Word which says the harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Every born again believer must heed the command of our Savior to “go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature”.
Nursing Home
Cast me not off in the time of old age, forsake me not when my strength faileth.
Psalms 71:9
   At 2pm on the third Sunday of each month, Milan Friends host a church service at Briarfield nursing home in Milan. This is a special ministry full of compassion and grace for those who are now living in nursing homes. Many of those in the home are not able to attend a local church. For many, these Sunday afternoons are the only church experience they get. We encourage them with singing, fellowship and by sharing God’s Word. There is always room for any who would like to take part in this ministry and become a blessing to those who are often forgotten by their own family members and church. 
Prayer Warriors
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. James 5:16
   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. We believe that prayer is an essential part of our lives as individuals and as a church. Each member of the church body is encouraged to be an active prayer warrior and just as the Bible specifically states, to “pray one for another”. The Milan Friends Church believes prayer changes things!

Friendship Café
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
1 Corinthians 10:31
The café is opened 20 minutes before each service. You can enjoy a cup of coffee and a snack as you fellowship with others. 
Music
O Come, let us sing unto the Lord: let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation. Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving, and make a joyful noise unto him with psalms.
Psalm 95:1-2
   Music has always played an important role in the worship of God’s people. God-honoring music is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of our church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.
Media & Technology
For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.
Acts 22:15
   Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of Milan Friends Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools in the best way possible for reaching the world with the gospel. Our weekly sermons will be uploaded to our website. We also maintain an active Facebook and other social media outlets for additional church communication.
Where Can I Serve?
Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Matthew 9:37
   Mark 10:45 states that “For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many”. Just as Jesus served while on this earth, we are to do our part in serving also. Serving not only impacts the person you serve, it impacts you and your faith. There are plenty of opportunities at Milan Friends Church to serve where you will have an opportunity to build relationships and make a difference. If you are interested in serving and using your spiritual gifts for the Lord, please let us know for the harvest truly is plenteous but the labourers are few.
