 Ministries of  the Congregation

The church council consists of lay members and the Pastor, responsible for the following ministries: Christian Education, Evangelism, Finance, Property, Social Ministry, Stewardship and Worship & Music. The following is a brief description of all ministries/committees.

  • Christian Education: It is the responsibility of this committee to oversee Sunday Church School, Pre-School and to assure proper preparation is given for First Communion and Confirmation by the Pastor and/or Lay Leaders. Striving to maintain volunteer teachers, curriculum maintenance, and special programs are the mainstays of achieving these requirements.

Our focus is three-fold; to grow by bringing in new members, to reach out to in-active members and to encourage participation of our regular members by cultivating and developing new ideas and programs.
  • Property: It is the responsibility of this committee to oversee the maintenance of the church buildings and grounds. As well as act as intermediary between church and outside contractors by securing estimates, presenting to council/congregation and assuring the work is completed as approved and in a timely fashion.
