Encore Ministry

As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Proverbs 27:17

The Encore Ministry at Benton First United Methodist Church is a new ministry that takes care of the older generation in the church. Each month, the group ventures out into their community, or meets at the church, for a time of fellowship, fun and community building
