Christian Life strives to “go” to the unreached with relevant and creative ways to share the Good News of Jesus through service, and community impact. We also want to provide ministries to connect each person in our church with a ministry that allows their God-given design to be fulfilled and effective.
We have several ongoing ministries available for you to connect with us, including students, children, and our small groups. For more information on these ministries, click the links on the menu to the left.
At Christian Life one of our core values says that “anointed teaching and spiritually gifted ministry provides the catalyst and atmosphere for transformation, however life change happens best in ‘spiritual friendships.’” With that in mind, one of the best ways to promote healthy spiritual friendships is through participation in one or more of our Group Life opportunities. Among our Group Life opportunities are Newcomers’ Night Out, Small Groups, various Classes and Clubs, and all of our Ministry Teams.
Listed below are our current offerings:
“Newcomers’ Night Out” is another opportunity to get acquainted with CLC’s uniqueness, purpose and core values. “Newcomers’ Night Out” also gives us an opportunity to get acquainted with you. This is what Sr. Pastor Doug Holmes loves most about this event. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “Newcomer” but just haven’t taken a step past attending our events, this is for you! Sign up (helps us prepare) or just walk in…either way -just come.
Ministry Teams – If you’d like to learn more about becoming involved with one of our teams, please feel free to call Pastor Ed at (850) 623-4017.
Small Groups are smaller gatherings that generally focus on topical issues that meet at both the church and in people’s homes where it’s easier to get to know people and share in ups and downs of each other’s lives.
Bible Studies and Classes are normally scheduled to begin in early spring and fall. While some classes are topically-specific, there are also classes that will focus on individual books of the Bible. Class and Bible Study times, along with location info, will be listed in the bulletin and on our website.
Clubs are where you can meet new people with similar interests in an “unchurchy” environment for the purpose of advancing your knowledge or just to have fun and connect with others.

“JC’s Place” – Children’s Church
JC’s Place is Christian Life’s ministry for children in grades Pre-K through 5th grade and is where your child will want to come and learn about God in a fun way!
At JC’s Place our goal is to join with you, the parent, to help your child understand who Jesus is and begin the process of developing a faith in Christ that will last a lifetime. It is also a place where we strive to provide a safe environment for each child, providing parents the assurance that their child is being well cared for during both of our services.
A nursery for infants and a fun place for toddlers are also available for both Sunday services.
Service times are Sunday at 9:00 am and 11:00 am!
