Jesus said, “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there I am in the midst of them!” We take these words very much to heart, as we pray, plan, organize and dream together in groups we call our committees.
Our committees are listed here. Anyone can join them, so if there is one that sounds like you, let us know! We always love fresh perspectives and new ideas.
