Ministry Teams

When God calls you to join Sequoyah, He calls you to take part in the life and service of the church. We all have been given gifts by God, so we can take pleasure in this service. There are many opportunities to serve. Just come to Ministry Sunday and try out the team that calls to you. You can sample all you like, or sit in for a while before you decide.
