​Worship Committee

    The major job of this committee is to support Sunday and holiday services. For example, the committee provides the elements for communion which is shared on the first Sunday of each month and all church holidays. We arrange for appropriate seasonal decoration of the church. This includes arranging for Easter mums and Christmas poinsettias which are purchased by members at large to honor or memorialize loved ones and then put out to adorn the Communion Table. Additionally, the committee organizes several special services throughout the year such as the Hanging of the Greens service during Advent and a special service each fall to honor/remember loved ones who have passed during the year. As our name implies, we support worship in whatever is needed.

It is no longer necessary to register before-hand for in-person worship.    In addition to in-person worship, our services are also being streamed on-line through the app Zoom, just as they have been throughout the pandemic.
