Bishop’s Committee

The Bishop’s Committee is the governing body of a mission congregation. Members are elected at an Annual Meeting in January and serve a three-year term. The Bishop’s Warden is appointed by the Bishop at the recommendation of the Vicar while the People’s Warden is elected by the members of the Bishop’s Committee, who oversee the financial and business affairs of the congregation as well as its development and vision.

Worship Teams

Music

Under the direction of Susan Parr, Faith’s choir provides the musical leadership during regular Sunday worship along with special music during Christmas and Easter services. Rehearsals are held at 8:30 before services and one weeknight. Faith’s Bell Choir adds to the worship throughout the year. This intergenerational group is open to anyone. Any interested singers or bell ringers should contact Susan Parr.

Altar Guild
DSC_0001Under the leadership of Betty Mitchell and Lorelei Auld, the altar guild lovingly cares for the altar, vessels, linens, candles and seasonal banners that change with the liturgical seasons. Creating special worship spaces takes many hands and the Guild welcomes new members.

 

 

 

Acolytes
Children carrying heavy objects and fire — who says church can’t be exciting! Acolyte training always involves pizza.

Chalice Bearers
All those interested in being a part of service at the Lord’s Table should make themselves known to the Bishop’s Committee.

Floral Guild
Anyone interested in arranging flowers to grace our services is welcome to participate. Floral tributes are always welcome.

Fellowship 
Faith is known for its amazing fellowship! Lorelei Auld and Amy Shimizu create the yearly schedule of fun and coordinate hospitality including:

  • Coffee Hour – Held after services and not to be missed!
  • Christmas Brunch – Women of Faith gift exchange.
  • Events and Services – Includes memorials and special congregation events.

Congregational Support

Children’s Programs

Church Growth 
Faith is a community treasure waiting to be discovered. Sharing blessings with others and being blessed are part of Faith’s mission. The group considers how to spread the word through outreach, special events and opportunities to become better acquainted. All ideas are welcome and considered.

Greeters and Ushers
The first point of contact with newcomers and visitors, dedicated greeters and ushers set the tone of welcome.

Stewardship 
Stewardship is more than financial support for the church; it is a way of life that recognizes God as the source of all. Being good stewards means to consider carefully what we do with one’s resources. All are encouraged to consider how thoughtful stewardship impacts the individual, the family, the church and the community.
