Which came first, the church or the ministry?
Well, it depends who you ask.
If you ask Stan and Vicki Mars of Mount Pleasant, it’s the ministry that comes first.
“We say we’re a ministry with a church, not a church with a ministry,” Vicki said.
Stan and Vicki are founders of Christ United Ministry, which is celebrating its grand opening on Saturday. Located at 500 Main St. in Melbourne, the ministry building has housed a variety of businesses, including a Pizza Inn and then another restaurant, among others.
“The ministry has actually been in the works for a couple of years,” Vicki said. “We didn’t get the building until Jan. 6.”
