Sharing Our Resources
Coordinator: Ralph McIntosh
Within our Governance structure, we have two main committees: Congregational Life, which plans and implements programs and events in the life of the congregation based on the liturgical themes of the church year, and Sharing Our Resources, which provides and distributes the resources needed to carry out these programs and events. These two committees are the planning arm of the church, but it is the volunteers who carry out the programs. Church Council oversees the work of this congregation as we strive to “Go, make a diff’rence” in this world.
