Community Engagement: The Community Engagement Committee is dedicated to reaching out to both the local and global communities to contribute to their welfare and needs through social betterment. We also provide opportunities for education and dialogue on issues of social justice.

Faith Exploration: We are committed to providing opportunities for exploring our Christian faith. Through open discussions, selected topics and formats, we can learn about ourselves by sharing with others. Ideas for discussions are welcome.

Membership: The Membership Committee expresses Christian hospitality through a warm welcome to all and a Welcome Centre that provides hearing assistance devices and various items of interest.  Refreshments are served during the fellowship time after worship services. Members connect with people in a way that offers support and lets them know that we care and are here for them.  We are all involved in pastoral care, and we do this by getting to know and building relationships with each other.

 

Worship: The Worship committee has responsibility for the worship program, coordinates congregational participation, considers congregational feedback, oversees the Worship Plan, and formulates worship policy for Council approval.
