Jars of Clay
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. (2 Cor 4:7)
We are jars of clay. As we go through life, we are bumped, bruised, cracked and broken. Celebrate LIFE Ministries uses the “all-surpassing power of God” through the Holy Spirit to comfort the broken, the disillusioned, the hopeless, the addicted, those in crisis, lost, or in despair. Just as God gave us comfort when we needed it, we pass it on, from one jar to another, then to another, unQl every life that we touch can see through the Holy Spirit “….the light of the glory of God in the face of Christ” (2 Cor 4:6). Extend your hand to us – we will take it!
—Pastor Ed Lauffer, Pastoral Care Ministries

Our Leadership Team
• Lori owned and operated a child care business for over 12 years, published a children's book, and now operates Just Ask Farms where her family shares the love of Jesus through various products and services. She is passionate about saving marriages and helping families work through problems in their relationships and with their children.
• Adrienne is recently disabled yet during her career, her main focus was always helping others. She is aware that people are hurting, and there are times when they feel they don’t know where to turn in their hour of need; therefore, it is her desire to make this ministry known so that those within the community who are in pain no longer need to feel that there is nowhere to turn.
• After being involved in coaching and counseling roles for over 40 years, Ruth is continuing to use her experience in those roles with Discovery/Destiny and Celebrate Life Ministries. She is committed to coming alongside people who are in crisis.
• While growing up, Jeanne experienced many issues that led her to have an open heart and desire to help others. She is committed to helping others with emotional needs find peace and love through Jesus. Jeanne believes there is not a better place to find that peace than “On Your Knees” “On the Father’s Lap.”
