WORSHIP COMMITTEE
Worship is the heart of our church. It is the time we come together as a Christian community to grow with the Spirit through the written and spoken word, to pray, to sing, and to commune together in joy and supplication.

The purpose of this committee is to assist the Pastor in planning and providing meaningful worship services that will refresh, nurture, educate and inspire all who attend. We oversee the sacraments of baptism and communion, plan the special seasonal worship services that are part of our church calendar, plan all other special worship services that we feel are appropriate to the life of our congregation, and review all matters relating to music within our worship.

We do feel that the congregation has become very comfortable and accepting of our present worship format.
