Ministries

Pastoral Council

The pastoral council provides consultation to the pastor through recommendations founded in the parish mission statement and vision fostering pastoral activity. The council does not serve as a board of directors or a legislative body. Council membership is a ministry. Essential to any ministry is that it is a response to the Lord's call, that it is for the sake of others not oneself or one's personal point of view and that it is arrived at through a process of discernment.

CHRISTIAN SERVICE COMMISSION

Christian Service Commission serves to empower the parish community to fulfill the gospel mandate of service and justice. Christian service reflects our belief in the dignity of each person from conception to natural death. As we serve others, we are enriched in Faith as members of the One Body of Christ. Every baptized Christian is called to fulfill the gospel mandate. The Christian Service Commission members are not responsible to do the entire social ministry themselves, but, as Disciples of Christ, to lead, empower and involve others in actively accepting the responsibility of baptism.
