Get Involved

We welcome the community to participate in congregational activities.

Learn about the Green Group, River Stewards, River Clean-up and other creation care activities on our Creation Care page.

LGBT Welcome Group

The group desires to create a place of welcome in the congregation for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people. The congregation bears with our diversity on this.

Congregational Love Feast

This takes place four times a year, before congregational meetings. It is a potluck fellowship meal including a time of open communion with bread and cup. All are welcome.

Congregational Retreat

Friday evening to Sunday afternoon on Labor day weekend at Amigo Centre, Sturgis, MI.

Peacemaking Delegations

Are you a Benton participant interested in learning about Christian peacemaking in places of violence? Would you consider a Christian Peacemaker Teams, Mennonite Central Committee or other delegation?  Other delegation opportunities can be found on the mission section of our bulletin board. The congregation offers financial and other support. This is part of our congregation’s commitment to the peace pledge. This is a way of reinvigorating our peace witness at a time when our nation’s wars require so little of us, and so peacemaking seems less critical.

Christian Service

Are you already serving in some way or thinking about serving? The congregation offers grants of up to $250 for short-term and $500 for long-term service work. The money supports participants who are working in some way for a ministry and can help pay for the participant’s expenses or be a donation in support of the ministry.
