Committees are the arteries of our congregation.
Through committees, we do the work of the church, make enduring friendships, develop a variety of experiences intended to nurture our diverse spiritual needs, welcome newcomers to our faith traditions, take care of our buildings and grounds, provide support to our neighbors experiencing hardship, endeavor to make gains on social justice issues, support our adult and youth religious exploration, and more:
