Boards and Committees

The volunteers who serve on our Boards and Committees really make our church work - and there is something for everyone!

Meetings and activities are the structures that offer opportunities for real ministry, a wonderful source of fellowship, and settings where people really get to know one another and build meaningful relationships.  

Board of Deacons

The Diaconate guides the spiritual life of our church. Deacons greet everyone who comes through our doors for services, offer welcome to newcomers, provide leadership in special worship services, assist with baptisms and confirmation, prepare and serve communion, and visit the sick and elderly.
