Watchman Monitoring Ministry
To provide a safe secure environment, for those persons who worship, meditate, praise and fellowship in Elam Baptist Church. As Gatekeepers, we are to protect the Pastor/Family Members/Visitors by providing a safe environment during all Church Services.
Scripture: Psalm 127 (KJV)
127 Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.
2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
3 Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.
5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.
To protect the people of God as ministry is in process.
Ministry Description: Our responsibilities vary; securing locks, and unlocking doors. We escort the Trustees and Finance Ministries from the Sanctuary with the offering to a secure location.
