Vision Statement: The Worship Committee enhances a portion of the services throughout the year, in the spirit of enlightenment, to nurture the body, mind, soul and spirit of out congregation. The Worship Committee partners with both the congregation and the ministers to provide the best possible services, to get feedback on the services/sermons and to act as a sounding board for the ministers’s own services/sermons. Each week, a Worship Associate helps coordinate the service with the ministers OR an outside speaker. The committee plans a service once a month during the regular church year, and also plans all summer services.
