The work of the church is done by the people! The Session has created seven ministries to carry out the work of the church. Each ministry is led by at least one member of the session, and is made up of people from the congregation willing to put their time and talent to carry out the mission of the church.
If you are interested in participating in one or more of the ministries, or in some of the activities listed therein, please contact the church office or fill out the Time and Talent online survey.
