This page is updated often, so keep checking in to see how the ministries are all growing. As a ministry grows in content & activity it will get its own page to link to on the website. Ministries that are highlighted in blue have a page that is linked — each and every ministry is an important part of HTC and we give all praise and glory to the Lord for these ministries. If you have questions, contact Lew Reeves, the Ministry Coordinator. If you are feeling God's nudging for you to start a new ministry, begin with the Start a New Ministry tab.

  • Ministry Leader: Gail Johnson

    The Card Ministry uses the act of sending monthly greeting cards to nursing home & rehabilitation facility residents and also food panty recipients to share Christ's Love. We do this to help encourage people and show that they are loved. Scripture is included in the cards so the people receiving these cards will know the love of Christ though His Word. We also pray over these cards before they are sent—that the cards would be used in a way that will draw people closer to our Lord. If you would like to be a part of this ministry, please contact Gail Johnson.

    Our Mission Statement: To share Christ's Love and draw people to God by providing greeting cards that contain Bible verses.

  • Ministry Leader: Kerri Hurd

    There is always a need for volunteers in HTC Kids (Preschool), Gforce (Elementary) and H2O (Middle & High School). Leading the next generation to know Jesus is an awesome responsibility and gift. You are helping plant seeds in the hearts of children. If you feel God calling you to serve in any of these areas, please contact Tanya Ehlers.

  • Ministry Leader: Pat Quirk

    Each year in December, the Christmas Caroling ministry team heads out into the community to sing and bring the hope of Jesus to everyone. This is so much more than singing Christmas songs (which of course, is super fun!) This simple act of kindness—through song—brings love and hope to people. You will not only get to meet people through song but you will have opportunities to share the gospel too! You don't have to be an opera singer, you simply have to have a heart to share the love of Jesus to a hurting world - one song at a time!

  • Ministry Leader: Carrie Boyden

    The Communications Team is made up of people with varying skill sets in creating content for social media, graphic design, photography, videography, writing, technology and so much more.

If you are creative and like communication, contact Carrie to find out how you be a part of this ministry.

    Coed Group

    Contact: Bonnie Camp EMAIL BONNIE

    "To care is the most human of all human gestures.  It is a gesture that comes forth from a courageous confession of our common need for one another and the grace of compassion that binds us together with others like ourselves who share this wonderful, and painful journey of life." Jesus instructs us to carry each other's burdens and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2) Jesus also tells us to love one another as He loved us in John 13:34.  Because our goal is to be more like Christ, and serve others as He served, these verses eventually call most of us to the life of a caregiver at some point in time  Right now there are more than 53 million unpaid caregivers in the US in 2023.

    Caregiving is difficult whether it is at home or in a hospital or a nursing home.  Trying to meet the needs of another person is never easy, especially when we are emotionally involved with the one we are providing care for.  A parent, a child, a sibling, a friend... there are many who are called to be caregivers.  And it is not an easy road to travel, and that is why we have established Kara.  

    Kara is a group for those of us who have been called to provide care for someone else but who also need to feel cared for.  Kara is a support group where caregivers can come to share what is on their hearts, seek advice from others who are walking the same road and just be appreciated, supported, cared for and encouraged by their own community of believers while experiencing the highs and lows of being a caregiver. Kara will offer a place to unwind amongst others who understand the caregivers journey, and hear encouragement on how blessed it truly is to take on the servant's heart of Christ as we care for others who need our help.

    There is a lot to do each Sunday before the first guest ever enters the building. Set-up begins at 7am and for about 90 minutes things are busy getting unpacked and put together to make sure HTC is ready to welcome everyone. At the end of the services, the team has it down to a science in how to pack it all up again! This group is serious about getting the work done, but all with a joyful heart and lots and lots of laughter. Being on the Set-up & Tear-down team allows you to see how things work at High Tide Church and you meet a lot of amazing people too! Many long lasting friendships have been made here. If you are not sure where to serve at HTC, we encourage you join this ministry!

  • Ministry Leader: Roy Litz

    The purpose of everything determines its nature, design and features. Our Creator, the Lord God Almighty is a God of purpose. He had a purpose in mind when He created you and molded you throughout life (Ephesians 2:10). What God has made you to be is intentional, meaningful and guaranteed to succeed as He has purposed for you. 

    Therefor, discovering who you are in Christ Jesus is an important key to determining your purpose in life and in the body of Christ—the kingdom of believer priests! God NEVER wastes anything! He has a plan and purpose for your life!

    Your Spiritual gifts, Heart and passions, Abilities and talents, Personality, and life Experiences are what makes you who you are—who God has created you to be. Understanding your unique S.H.A.P.E. will help you discover your place in service to Him--your sweet spot-- so that you can be everything GOD wants you to be!
