Committee List

Committees & Contact Person

Many people are needed to make our church the vibrant place we love. Volunteering for a committee is both personally rewarding and important to making our church function. Many committees meet once a month; others meet on an “as needed” basis.

You are invited to please contact committees of interest to you.

Equal Exchange

One of the church’s fundraising activities is the sale of Equal Exchange products including organic coffee, chocolate, and olive oil. Equal Exchange is a Fair Trade Organization through which small-scale farmers in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the US earn a fair price for their products, have access to affordable credit, and gain a long-term trading partner they can trust. It’s a win-win-win: the farmers benefit, the church makes a profit to help support our activities, and YOU get to enjoy these delicious products!
