We are part of the Nazarene Church which means we are able to do more together than we can alone! KetchikanNaz supports the Nazarene World Evangelism Fund (WEF) financially and prayerfully. Just as individual members tithe at church, we as a church tithe to WEF which then takes 'church tithes' from all Nazarenes around the world and does some amazing things with them! You are making a difference on a global scale! There are many opportunities to give globally in addition to WEF, and we have adopted a few and called them our own. We take special offerings through the year, we pray for, and engage in these specific ways as a church.
Compassionate Ministry is simply defined as 'meeting a need in love.' As part of the Global Church of the Nazarene we support Nazarene Compassionate Ministry (NCM) and encourage those in our church to find a project they are passionate about and serve and give in that way.
Some of the compassionate ministries that NCM provides for are: clean water, education for women and children, human trafficking, refugee support and disaster relief.
Did you know you can impact the life of a child by providing food, clothing, and education?
As a church we sponsor two children - but many of our families have chosen to sponsor kids as well! You can too!
Twice a year we collect an Alabaster Offering. 100% of the funds go to help build medical facilities, orphanages, churches, schools and missionary homes across the world.
We love this offering! In fact, the building we worship in was built with Alabaster!
KetchikanNaz is not just part of a global community but is also part of a local community and we desire to love and serve our city both in tangible ways (food drives, etc) and intangible ways (prayer and encouragement). We partner with local organizations to help make this community better, safer, and warmer! These organizations fill a great need in our town and we collect tangible items, and/or offerings at different times in the year to support what they do for the people who live in Ketchikan! We seek ways to give, to bless and to love.
We also host seasonal event like Vacation Bible School in the summer, Biker Blessings, and more as we are able! We simply want to bless you all with something fun, and family friendly and free.
