  • Trustees

    The Trustees are responsible for making sure that the church has the facilities necessary to carry out the ministries of the congregation, and for caring for the upkeep of those facilities.
  • Lay Pastoral Care Team

    The Lay Pastoral Care Team has created a three-way ministry to our shut-ins, sick and hospitalized members.

    1.)   Card Ministry – once a month we send thinking of you cards to everyone on our list.  We also acknowledge birthdays and send get well cards as well as sympathy cards when appropriate.

    2.)   Telephone Ministry – we try to phone everyone on the list at least once a month with a goal of twice a month.

    3.)   Visitation – the team divides the list and tries to visit each member on the list at least once a month.  Some team members visit their people almost every week.  Those who visit bring copies of the Upper Room, Sunday school books (when asked for) and the pastor tries to give communion at least four times a year.  The church sends weekly bulletins to those on the list.

            The Lay Pastoral Care Team is always looking for volunteers to be part of the team. Contact the church office to help out with this. We also have bereavement teams that provide meals when a church member passes away. If you can help with this, please contact the   
            church office.
