Our people make our church! Our greatest asset and our living church is our members.
One of the highlights of the Presbyterian Church is that it is led by people in the congregation who have been elected to serve.
Pastors are only part of the equation. They join Elders, Deacons, and Trustees in helping the congregation carry out the mission of the church. Obviously, this involves a lot of team work. How wonderful - people working together in the way of Jesus Christ.
Committees are used to engage more of the congregation in the active life of the church. Every member is encouraged to use their spiritual gifts in serving God to accomplish the great commission. "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matthew 28:19-20
“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” I Peter 4:10
