Our church and its mission are made possible through the work of several committees. Each committee contributes to the life of our church, community, and world in different ways. Committees are chaired by an Elder serving on Session and members serve for between 1 – 3 years.
Serving on a committee is a great way to share your time and talents and to get to know others in the congregation! If you are interested in serving on a committee, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
