As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

YMC (Young Married's Class)

YMC (Young Marrieds Class) meets every Sunday morning from 9:30 am until 10:25 am in the Family Room (located in the GA Mangun Center).  This class is designed for those who have been married 0-10 years.  YMC is exciting!  Relevant, 21st-century topics are discussed with relevant Biblical answers.  Lesson topics range from tools to empower the Christian marriage to simple Biblical discipleship principles.  The class is interactive, and participation is encouraged. Friendships and relationships are also an important part of the class.  Each month YMC hosts a social activity to facilitate fellowship and community among the young marrieds of the POA.  These events range from game nights at the family life center, to special date nights, to family picnics.
 
If you've been looking for a way to connect with other couples in the earlier stages of life together and build a great Christian marriage God's way, YMC is for you!

Sixty Plus

Vesta Mangun’s Class provides relevant messages that resonate in our lives today.  New insights are brought to the forefront from some of the POA’s most well-studied members, including Vesta Mangun.  The result is a fresh understanding of the message of God. This 9:30 am Sunday school class meets in the main sanctuary.
 
Sixty Plus Activities
Sixty Plus promotes spiritual growth and Christian fellowship for all church members 60 years of age or older.  This ministry seeks to connect with the seniors of the POA and keep them involved in fellowship activities. Sixty Plus activities include, but aren't limited to, the following events. Sixty Plus members gather for a time of fellowship and a meal following Sunday Evening Worship several times each year.  Holiday events include an annual Christmas banquet. Outdoor events, such as Bar-B-Qs or Gumbo Dinners, are held throughout the year in the Family Life Center (FLC) Courtyard.  Road Trips to various locales are a Sixty Plus favorite.  Sixty Plus members also make regular visits to area hospitals and send out cards of encouragement.  If you are 60 or older, you are invited to attend these events. For more information, please visit one of our two Welcome Centers located at either end of  the lobby.

Deaf Ministry

Offering the deaf community an opportunity to learn about the Gospel and to worship along with the church,  The POA's Deaf Ministry provides interpreting services for the hearing impaired.  Members of the Deaf Ministry interpret all POA services and special events.  However, this ministry goes beyond mere interpreting--the Deaf Ministry also provides Sunday School, Bible teaching, and fellowship. Form more information about the POA Deaf Ministry click here.

Prayer Ministry

Believing in the power of prayer, decades ago our Bishop (then Pastor), established a program of 24-hour prayer for this congregation.  We pray in shifts of 3-hour increments, or smaller segments as conveniently broken up by prayer partners.  Some pray one shift a week, some pray one shift a month.  Many pray even more.  We believe in the power of prayer!
