We believe that we are called to do God’s work in the community around us as well as globally.  These Ministry Teams oversee our work:

 

 

 

 

Bible Study2 Faith Development Ministry provides opportunities for study and discussion of God’s word and how it applies in real life. The purpose of the Faith Development Ministry is to assist everyone to grow in faith, respond to and participate in God’s plan, and learn to support and encourage one another in discovering and using God’s gifts in the congregation and in the world.  The ministry team supports confirmation classes, Sunday School (for all ages), and inquirer’s sessions.
