Prayer is not what leads us to the higher caller; prayer itself is the higher calling. This is one thing that has always been understood on such a deep level at the Ark of Mercy.
For over 30 years, in every season and in each stage this church has gone through, God has always assembled a team of intercessors to keep each ministry within this building are covered in a canopy of prayer.
Each Tuesday Night our Men, better known as "Sons of Thunder" meet in the sanctuary at 6:00PM to pray for the church, the community, our Nation, Israel and The Kingdom!
Also, Mrs. Carol Jean Clem, has a class each Tuesday night at 7:00PM upstairs in the Prayer Room for all the ladies. She has been a foundational intercessor of the Ark for many years now and so it's no surprise this group is flourishing! Join in and see for yourselves! You won't be disappointed!
Ephesians 6:18- "Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit"
Matthew 6:6- "But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you."
As of 2023, our Women's Ministry came under new leadership, as Aletha "Lee" Darbyshire took the reins under the direction of God and Pastor Janice. We will still be meeting and eating each month, the last Wednesday at 6:30PM. We will go over all upcoming events and ways you can cheerfully serve as we usher in this last day Revival! The harvest is ready and it is my desire, that here at the Ark, our women will always be ready and willing to serve the harvest and uplift The Kingdom! The format of our meetings are changing and we are so excited where God is leading us during this time!
First group meeting will be February 10, 2023
Gregory and Brittany Kuhn had been seeking the Lord early on in their relationship about what their ministry would look like. A few weeks later went by and they started talking about their passion for young adults and how between the ages of 18-25 they are the ones who fall through the cracks. In the same week; Gregory and Brittany had been talking and praying about this, Pastor Janice Claypoole asked Brittany if her and Gregory would become the Young Adult Pastors. Brittany answered with an immediate yes. Months went by and the Lord began to reveal to Gregory and Brittany the logistics of what the group would be about. The Lord gave Gregory the name SHIFT Young Adults. Shortly after, the Lord gave Brittany the mission of SHIFT Young Adults. The mission of SHIFT is Seeking Him In Faith Together. Gregory and Brittany are excited about this new journey the Lord has opened up for them. SHIFT Young Adults is for ages 18-25. They will meet every second and third Friday of the month at 6pm. SHIFTs goal is to disciple and mentor these Young Adults so they can go out and disciple others. Each class and ministry has led to this point in time where God saw two willing servants with hearts for Young Adults and said YES just like Pastor did all those years ago.
REND Ministries was birthed in prayer and given from the scripture reference "Isaiah 64:1-Oh that you would rend the Heavens, that you would come down. That the mountains would shake at your presence."
It is our vision and goal to provide the knowledge of God and His word to this generation! To bridge the gap as children of all ages transition through life and face many obstacles, that they have a firm foundation in their identity through the word of God! To bring a generation into the presence of God for an encounter that is transforming to see them in turn, rise up and bring change to their generation!
It is our desire at all times to align with God's purpose as we provide and maintain an atmosphere of worship, prayer, and the word of God, that the presence of God can dwell among us at all times!
Our Children's Ministry, Rend Kids Ministry, plays an essential role in our ministry as a whole as we are teaching the "church of tomorrow" to be the "church of today"! Our team members have a great understanding of the daily battles this generation faces in the secular realm and how important it is to teach them the truth of the word of God as their firm foundation to build their lives upon.
Our children's ministry reaches children from the young age of 4 all the way up to 12 years old and then we have a Teen-Youth department for 13 and up. In our Children's department located on the bottom floor of our facility, we offer classes for all ages every Thursday evening. They start with a light meal at 6:30PM and then class beings at 7:00PM and ends at 8:00PM.
We have Sunday school every Sunday morning for ages 4-12 from 10:00am-11:00am. After Sunday school, our students are fed a warm breakfast before starting worship and having the Children's church portion of their weekly services.
Our students have the opportunity to join our junior drama/praise team, "One Pulse", where they are taught multiple skits to a variety of worship songs all while being active in the house of God in a team dynamic.
We would love to have your children join this church of children their age: where they can connect, build a relationship with Jesus while also building a relationship with their peers and qualified teachers, and give them a place to feel safe and accepted as they continue to learn and grow in Christ and in truth
Pure religion undefiled. Our group meets monthly at various locations in Winchester to fellowship with one another along with creating a support group to help young and old navigate through the season they are dealing with. Watch our Facebook page for dates and locations. Sister Barbara Claypoole and Sister Angela Kidder lead this group.
The single PATH! They will meet one the last Friday of every month at 7PM! Let’s hear from the heart of the new leaders, Sarah Oladi and Jess Oladi
A season of singleness… though our paths may look different we have all been there! In this class we aim to be good stewards of our singleness by implementing biblical truth, prayer, and fellowship into every meeting. Seeking after the Lord and strengthening our relationship with Him is the main ambition. We also hope as you attend that you will see a new perspective on being single: it is a beautiful chapter that is not meant to be discouraging, lonely, or rushed through. You can enjoy this time with God and trust that he is healing, growing, and preparing you for what He has planned for you. We want to focus on all the amazing things God has for you this season and help you be ready for the next. We welcome you to join us and are so excited to see where the Lord takes us as a group and as individuals on this journey of singleness. God bless you!
