As our congregation continues to grow, the idea of a shared ministry becomes more and more important. We, the members of the Committee on Ministry (COM), hope to facilitate this by keeping the minister advised of concerns and successes within the congregation, as well as by helping the members understand how the minister must set priorities in order to sustain the wellbeing of our church community. We want to be sure she has reflection time as our spiritual leader and time to offer pastoral counsel as needed.
So, talk to us! We will hear your comments and bring them to our meetings with the minister, which are always confidential.
We also work with the Parish Committee on the minister’s annual evaluation and contract details and to help assess our community’s shared ministry and alignment with our mission.
Together, members of the COM bring to our work years of membership as well as experience and participation with many facets of our wide community including time spent on Parish Committee, R.E., music, membership, finance, lay ministry, leadership, and other committees. This year’s members are John Anderson (chair), Suzanne Costello, Elizabeth Hunter, Alan Schweitzer, Kate Tranquada, and Julius Perili. Email the committee with your feedback today!
We look forward to hearing from you about matters of ministry, either in church, or via email.Back to News
