The Revitalization Committee
The Revitalization Committee is an informal committee that was formed to bring about change creating a more community atmosphere that appeals to the church membership outside of the Sunday services leading to recruitment, retention and reactivation of members. To date the activities generated by the committee include church family and friends group attendance at the Iron Pigs, the Pines Dinner Theatre, family game nights, a church picnic service and post-service fellowship. The committee is also working with the worship & music committee, the pastor, and the organist/music director to add additional worship options along contemporary lines. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, please speak to Dale Ott.
