Congregational Care

The Congregational Care Committee is committed to caring for our church members beyond Sunday morning. We do this through communication, hosting social events and overseeing special programs. Our committee cares for the congregation in many ways. We meet the second Sunday of every month at 12:15 pm at the church.
