Much of the planning and organizing is done through the committees of the church. Below you will find information on what each committee is responsible for, and who to contact to get more involved.

The program will include Bible studies, topical studies, different learning experiences and techniques, Presbyterian beliefs and fellowship. Chair: Meril Amos

This team coordinates the maintenance and upgrades to our buildings and exterior grounds and also sets up tables and chairs for special events. Chair: Betty Stephenson
Children, Family and Youth: Faithfully engages, empowers and nurtures our children, youth and families through prayer, mission and worship.

Chair: Amy Langeberg
Endowment: This is an elected committee that creates awareness within the congregation of the need and joy of making financial gifts to the church, to receive those gifts, and to act with proper fiduciary responsibility to oversee the investment management and disbursement of endowment funds. Once assets are accepted, the Endowment Committee is committed to honor the gift designations and the wishes of the donor(s). Chair: Jamie Linville
Finance: Develops and recommends an annual budget to the Session with input from the staff and committees. The budget is monitored on a regular basis by reviewing the monthly financial information provided by the Treasurer, Board of Deacons, and Children, Family and Youth Committee. The goal of the Finance Committee is to look out for the financial well-being of the church by finding ways to contain and minimize costs and establishing internal financial controls.
