Staff and Leadership
We Are The Church Together
No one person can do the job of the church alone. Leadership in the church is more than a role in the church- it is an avenue to engagement in the church. Leaders are the listeners, encouragers, and inspirers. Leadership is not just a weekend position, it continues through the week.
Please join us virtually as we continue to spread God's word from the safety and comfort of your home. (here)

This ministry is a volunteer ministry. They bring to the congregation their gifts and passions, being shared to the benefit of our congregation and the community.
The nurses assist with healthcare assessments and decisions when requested or needed. This means that when it is necessary, they will accompany a member to a doctor’s appointment. Our Parish Nurses work with our Pastor, local hospitals, social service agencies and the community for the wellness of our congregation.
