MVCN has a strong group of women and we enjoy several times of fellowship throughout the year. Ladies Fellowship meets at the church at 6:30pm the third Tuesday of each month, September through April. This is a great way to meet others in our church and is open to teens and older. Child care is provided at no charge. At these gatherings, we typically have special speakers with informative and uplifting messages. In March we have dinner out instead of ladies fellowship at the church.
The Ladies Ministry co-sponsors 2 yard sales each year with the KidsWay Children’s Ministries. Another big event is our annual Ladies Garden Party the first Saturday in May.
Additionally, we have a monthly luncheon at various restaurants in the Aiken-Augusta area on the first Tuesday of each month.
One of each year’s highlights is our South Carolina District Ladies Retreat held in November at Myrtle Beach, SC. This weekend is a spirit-filled time with awesome speakers and fun times with friends. If you have any questions, please see our Ladies Ministry Coordinator, Barbara Richardson.
The Men's Ministry wants to be a support system for all men and boys as we try to accomplish what the Lord tells us in Proverbs 27:17 - As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. The Tuesday morning Man Up Bible Study at 6:00 am is a great weekly gathering of men of all ages with an average of 30-40 in weekly attendance. Once a month a full breakfast is prepared by our men at Man Up. Pastor Wayne continues to lead a Wednesday night Men's Bible Study.
In February, we hold one of our most entertaining events, the Annual Chili Cook-Off and Wing Eating Contest. The event really showcases the cooking abilities of the men along with the ability of some to eat extremely hot wings. You never know what will happen on that night and what awards will be given.
Also throughout the year we mix in a college football cookout, camping, fishing, various mentoring events and other fun activities.
