Adult Ministry

Adults provide leadership for all areas of the church’s life.  We encourage every member, who is able, to serve on a Session Team.  Service builds relationships among members and gives one a sense of being a part of the community of the church. We also encourage church participants to suggest other opportunities for sharing talents and involvement.

 

Adults are given the opportunity for fellowship through many “fellowship” and “outreach” activities.
