Our committees are an extension of the church and are the organizations that help us support the community, both locally and globally. Everyone is welcome to serve on one of our committees.
Christian Education: The role of this committee is to share the teachings of Jesus with all our members and friends. Adult, junior and senior high, elementary, preschool and nursery Sunday School classes are available to all at 9:15 on Sunday mornings. The committee oversees many other faith strengthening activities including Game Night, Vacation Bible School, Special Adult Classes, Youth Retreats and Mission Trips.
Church Life: The Church Life Committee organizes and assists in the many activities and programs of the church. This can include Lenten and Advent dinners, Women’s Banquet, congregational dinners, and church breakfasts. Church Life often hosts special events such as the dome opening, graduation and church birthday celebrations.
Finance, Stewardship, and Property: The role of the FSP is to manage the churches finances and to meet the present and future needs of the church property. This committee oversees church maintenance, encourages giving and leads in special fund raising projects.
Mission: The Mission Committee directs the congregation in showing God’s love by supporting local and foreign missions. This committee oversees a monthly community meal, food donations, and homeless shelter outreach. Local agencies such as Adult Basic Education, CHAP, Habitat for Humanity, Meals-on-Wheels, Hocking Hills Inspire Shelter and others are supported by our church through this committee.
Nominating: This committee is elected by the congregation and meets in June to prepare a slate of candidates for the Boards of Session and Deacons.
