Church Leadership

The Congregational Church is built upon the theology of the Priesthood of All Believers, that every member and friend of the church has gifts that can be offered for the sharing of the Good News of Jesus Christ.  The United Church of Christ practices equipping the People of God to serve with open hearts and hands.  In addition to hands-on Mission, there are also opportunites to serve on Ministries at our church.  Please see below for a brief description.  We give thanks for the following people who are serving this year:
