The Involvement Ministry:
John 15:8 reminds us that it is to God’s glory that we “bear much fruit”. Romans 12:1 reminds us that our “reasonable service” is to sacrifice ourselves to God. Paul reminds us in 2 Tim 2:2, 2:4-7 we must find “faithful men to teach faithful men” in order to maintain the integrity of the Gospel.
Deacon – Isaac Williams
Elder – Mike Swager
We are the “go to” Ministry for members to get connected; biblically encouraging the uninvolved to get involved in Serving God by Serving Others.
This ministry serves to function as the introduction of new Christians and new Members to the loving and caring environment of the Murrieta Church of Christ. It is designed to provide sound outlines of this congregation’s personality in a manner based on principals of scripture, congregational history, and Church leadership.
To encourage all members to identify and to use their God-given design (spiritual gifts and personal passions) to serve in the body of Christ and the community; while building relationships that lead to the whole church experiencing spiritual and numerical growth, to the glory of God.
- Welcome Ministry:
Leader –Evelyn Williams
Provide a warm and welcoming environment to our visitors and guests. We want to encourage a return visit and possible membership if the visitor is looking for a church home. More importantly, we want to introduce Christ to those who may not know Him.
As the visitor’s first contact with the Murrieta Church of Christ, we want to present a warm and nurturing environment to those seeking Christ; through our greeters, the warmness of our existing members, and ushers, we want to leave a lasting impression of a family who worships and serves Christ.
- New Christians/ New Members Ministry:
Leader – Vennita Jackson
Provide initial Biblical Education to the New or Young Christian and orientation to New Members.
Through loving fellowship and equipping our new family members with information and guidance, we will encourage each to become an active part of the family (body) of Christ and to promote its good to the glory of God.
- New Member Orientation Facilitator:
Leader – To be determined
Provide introductory information to members of the Vision and Mission of the Murrieta Church of Christ.
We want to provide our New Christians/ Members with information and guidance that ensures warm and nurturing integration into the Christian Family worshiping at the Murrieta Church of Christ.

Our New Member Ministry oversees two lunches per year which are held on various fifth Sundays. We gather to honor the new members and to become better acquainted with them by interviewing them in front of the audience.
We provide them with a series of questions in advance so that they are prepared with the answers for the interviews.
The Elders also host at least one quarterly class per year for new members to help acquaint them with our church body and to answer any questions they may have. This class also helps the new members identify their gifts and begin to find their specific place in the body here at Murrieta Church of Christ.
On the first Saturday of every month, you will find the Men’s Ministries cooking breakfast in our Fellowship Center. They meet at 7:30AM, cook their breakfast (and even eat their own cooking!), and then have a time of prayer and fellowship.
Mark your calendar. Dates & location, to be determined. Join with other men of God in fellowship and prayer.
- Are you the spiritual leader of your home?
- Are you the protector?
- Are you the provider?
- Are you a caring man?
- Are you a humble man?
- Are you a holy man?
- Are you a courageous man?
Never give up, never back down, & never lose faith.
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you; He will never leave you or forsake you.”
Following breakfast, they come to the church building at 9:30 AM where they have their own House-to-House group fellowship and Bible study.
The Seniors plan trips to various destinations in Southern California, and they answer Uncle Sam’s call whenever our church building becomes a polling place by being on hand to assist voters with their needs.
Our Senior ladies are also very involved with potlucks, showers and other events, as well as with communion preparation.
Offering a platform and environment where women can come together to share, ask questions, work through challenges and be empowered to become strong women in today’s society.
