The Committee on Shared Ministries oversees the Fellowship’s councils, and strives to support and advocate for shared ministry throughout congregational life.
The Member Engagement Council is a standing committee, coordinating a number of active task forces, each dedicated to doing the work necessary to support this mission.
• Providing Sunday morning hospitality to our members and newcomers with an informative Welcome Table, Greeters, and Coffee;
• Offering regular “Path to Membership” classes each year, and co-coordinating the new member recognition services;
• Illuminating other pathways for new members and active visitors to deepen their involvement and engage in community-building and service activities;
• Maintaining, with staff, an accurate and up-to-date listing of members, friends, and active visitors.
Member Engagement Task Forces are project-dependent. They meet only as needed, and membership on these task forces is expected to be flexible and often short-term.
The Memorial Services Committee organizes the support teams that work with our Minister to perform Celebration of Life services of the Fellowship’s members when needed. Activities include, but are not limited to, providing for the reception following the service. Other support services are defined as appropriate for each event.
The Director recruits professional musicians for the remaining Fellowship services, and other musical offerings. Committee members assist as needed.
