  Community Care Ministry

We visit those who are in Nursing homes, shut ins, those who are in the hospitals recovering surgery. We call those who are sick and sometime provide meals.

We comfort those members who have lost a love one and provide funeral collations to those who ask for it. We are a praying church and believe in the power of prayer. We have a prayer chain for those who need it.

SPRC Chair

The ministry entrusted to SPRC is in its name:  Staff/Pastor-Parish Relations Committee.  We maintain a connection with the United Methodist Church’s District Superintendent and tend to administrative concerns.  More importantly, however, SPRC focus’ on the relationships between our pastor, musician, sexton, and our congregation.  We are there to support our staff and all members of our church family by listening, encouraging communication, and by representing their hopes and concerns.

Young Adult Rep.

Realizing from my own time as a young adult that this demographic often pulls away from church attendance and participation, I want to help our young adults connect to the church in a way that makes sense to them, that makes them feel nurtured and heard, and that gives them an outlet for sharing God's love with marginalized populations.
