Being a congregation means that we are the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 12). Each part is significant, and makes a valuable contribution to the health and well-being of the whole body. Much of this happens informally, in the day-to-day interaction of church members.
There are numerous ways of contributing in more specific areas. In order for the Sunday church services to run smoothly, greeters, ushers, accompanists, sound technicians, child minders and teachers, parking lot patrols, and church bulletin editors are vital. Host families open their home for visitors each Sunday. The Ladies Aid offers hospitality and refreshment on designated Sundays. Helping Hands provides meals and other practical assistance for families during times of illness and difficulty. A Committee of Administration takes care of the congregation’s financial responsibilities. The Refugee Aid Committee spearheads congregational efforts in supporting refugee families we sponsor. A Writers’ Group works at raising the church’s visibility in the community.
Opportunities abound to get involved in areas of one’s interest and abilities.
