Christian Education Family and Youth (CEFY)
We have monthly events for our young people and provide childcare during choir rehearsal and church. Our pastor gives a fun and relevant children’s sermon each week. We have an active adult study group that uses interesting and theologically challenging material for discussion.
Our church donates money each year to local, state, national and international charities. We keep our members informed about how to give in a time of crisis. We also sponsor speakers to talk about various charitable organizations and ways we can support peace and justice in our world.
Church Life Ministry
Music is an important part of our church. We have a world-class organ and organist! This ministry carefully assists with the selection of anthems, hymns and other music to enhance our worship experience.
The church growth effort includes working together with the Pastor, in formulating and recommending strategies and programs to promote church growth.
The ministry promotes fellowship by hosting a coffee hour after Sunday Worship as well as planning social events through out the year such as a summer ice cream social, a fall corn boil, caroling and hanging of the greens at Christmas time. We have monthly potlucks in our Fellowship Hall where we enjoy eating, talking and singing together.
We make delicious Pasties! The Pasty ministry has a pasty bake five times per year for sale to the congregation and friends. This is a wonderful opportunity for fellowship and to fund special projects not covered in our general church budget.
Planned Giving Ministry
The purpose of the Planned Giving Ministry is to encourage the Christian stewardship of accumulated, inherited and appreciated resources.
The Property Ministry is responsible for the upkeep, repair and general maintenance of all church buildings, property and grounds.
Special Ministries and Boards
The Ministry along with the Treasurer formulates a proposed budget for each upcoming year. The Ministry receives Memorial gifts on behalf of the church and also plans and organizes Stewardship efforts through pledging to fund the local church annual budget and the wider church’s mission.
This ministry is designed to assist members and friends of our church in various ways during times of crisis through prayer circles, transportation, phone calls and meals.
The Nominating Ministry proposes a slate of ministry members for approval at the Annual Meeting.
Pastor/Parish Relations Ministry
The ministry serves in two primary ways: as an advisory group to the Pastor, and as support for the Pastor’s leadership. Its goals are the professional growth and well being of the Pastor and the promotion of mutual ministry between the Pastor and the congregation.
The Personnel Board is responsible for contract personnel not called by the congregation. It maintains and reviews contracts, reviews church programs and personnel, reports actions and makes recommendations to the Council for approval.
Women’s Fellowship Board
The Women’s Fellowship Board shares in the ministry of the church but operates under its own constitution.
