Westminster Presbyterian Church Committees
A Word About Them
The best way to get involved in the work of Christ in the church is to work alongside others on church committees. “Many hands make light work”, the saying goes, and it’s a great opportunity to find out what your own gifts and skills are.
The Christian Education Committee oversees Sunday School, Youth Group, and other educational groups and events for all ages. Help is always appreciated for Sunday School and special projects. Shawn Baer is Committee Chair.
The Mission Committee works locally and globally to engage our church in providing essentials such as food, housing, clothing, and sharing the love of Christ. The Mission Committee sponsors mission trips, and help in re-building after natural disasters here in the U.S. and abroad. The Mission Committee also supports missionaries working through our Sudan Partnership, and host visits to our church from Sudanese and South Sudanese when peace in those nations allows. Duffy Greba is Committee Chair.
The Property Committee undertakes the care of our church building and grounds. The Property Committee always welcome “extra hands” to help with seasonal projects, routine maintenance, and furniture set-up not handled by the church custodian. Mike Travis is Committee Chair.
The Parish Life Committee oversees fellowship where meals are provided, such as Soup Sundays and funeral bereavement meals. The Parish Life Committee also oversees special fundraisers and projects that bring the congregation together from both worship services. Ann Schuck is Committee Chair.
The Membership Committee sponsors new members coming into the life of the church, and promotes activities that church members may enjoy, such as music recitals, church game nights, and community projects. The Membership Committee also provides care packages for college students who are away at school. Kevin Truscott is Committee Chair.
The Stewardship and Finance Committee oversees the stewardship of the church’s financial program and also stewardship of the gifts and talents of church members. The Stewardship Committee is uniquely positioned to get an “overall view” of our ministry, and is active at all times of the year. Fred Sovyak is Committee Chair.
The Worship Committee works with the minister, music director, and church organist to maintain worship on Sunday mornings and special days such as Lenten services, Christmas, Good Friday, Ash Wednesday, and Maundy Thursday. The Worship Committee oversees getting liturgists and acolytes, as well as seeing that the church décor and paraments reflect the liturgical season. Lynne Ticherich is Committee Chair.
