The freedom and joy of worship enjoyed by the congregation at SUMC is wonderfully demonstrated by our expressive worship team, "Unshackled." The team uses dance, flags, billows, and sign language to beautifully glorify our wondrous LORD. Led by Jeanette Phillips, the team welcomes new recruits who love to worship God with artistic expression.
With the hectic demands placed on so many women these days, Springfield ladies decided to form a ministry for women that focused on walking in the Peace of God and so named their ministry, Sisters of Shalom; "shalom" meaning tranquility, justice, sufficiency in all things. The ministry holds a monthly brunch with a special speaker and a focus on refreshing the spirit and restoring the soul. Besides deepening our Christian relationships with each other, S.O.S. also has set out to offer a lifeline to women who get caught in life's storms. Sisters of Shalom hope to model Ephesians 2:8-10 which says, "We are God's workmanship, created in Christ to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do."
The Springfield Mission House has been serving our community for more than 30 years. Entirely operated by dedicated and loving volunteers, the Mission House ministers to approximately 2,000 individuals and families each year. Everyone who comes is cared for in a personal one-to-one manner. Each Tuesday morning, every person has the opportunity to receive prayer for their needs, their heartaches and their circumstances. On average, 2 or 3 persons give their lives to Christ each week and others renew their faith by dedicating their lives to Jesus. Whether or not a person wants or receives prayer, each one receives a substantial allotment of food. In line with this, the Mission House also has a well-stocked clothing locker with clothes, shoes, and other household items for folks in need. The Mission House is the heart of Springfield and everyone is grateful to the Lord for this opportunity to touch so many lives in Christian love and witness. Jack Whalen leads the prayer ministry and Jeanette Phillips is the director.
The Springfield Church is blessed to host The House of Prayer Panama City. Today, HOPPC exists as a fellowship of lovesick believers of Jesus Christ who are forerunners and are in the process of intentionally standing before the Lord night and day with worship and intercession. From this place of intimacy with the Bridegroom, we seek to reach the lost and restore the identity of believers as the Bride of Christ and provide biblical-based education and experiences for all believers of Christ in all areas of life so that they may each be intimate lovers of God. HOPPC's vision is to train, equip and release forerunner intercessors and messengers empowered by the Holy Spirit through a lifestyle of prayer, worship and fasting for the end-time harvest of souls and provide a place of encouragement and training for all those who are stirred by the call of the prayer movement.
