The Education Committee has the responsibility to nurture the members of this parish in the Word of God so as to grow in faith and hope and love, to see daily life as the primary setting for the exercise of their Christian calling, and to learn to use the gifts of the Spirit for their life together and for their calling in the world.
Ways to Serve:
- Serve on the Education Committee
- Coordinate/chaperone youth events and lock-ins
- Attend/volunteer at the following programs/events:
Faith Formation (Children & Adult) is held from 10:45am (after worship) to 11:45am most weeks during the school year.

More teachers and assistants are always needed; talk to the education chair if you are interested in serving in this way.
