Worship Committee – Worship is the central action of the Church’s life. Christian worship is the primary way in which we give praise to God, and better understand the meaning of God’s word for our lives. Worship also draws us closer as we support, encourage and nurture one another. All else that the church does, both in its life together and in its ministry in the world – is rooted in the worship of God.
The goal of our worship program is to ensure that every Sunday morning worship service is carefully planned and conducted to provide meaningful, creative and thoughtful worship experiences that invite our members forward on their spiritual journeys. To enhance the worship experience, we continually think about, imagine, and evaluate how our congregation praises God.
Memorial Committee – The Memorial Committee is charged with keeping track of the memorial funds that are received from a family when one of their loved ones has died.

Lay Leadership Committee – An effective committee on nominations and leader development identifies, develops, deploys, evaluates, and monitors Christian spiritual leadership so that the congregation carries out the ministries for transformation of the community. This committee guides church leaders on matters regarding laity in leadership of the congregation.
