Evangelism / Outreach Committee
The Outreach committee (formerly known as the Evangelism committee) leads us in continuous efforts to call others to Christ. This committee promotes our church in the congregation at public events such as the Webster Firemen’s Parade. It also works to establish strong ties to all members of our congregation through new member receptions, Family dinners and Men’s club.

The Social Ministry committee encourages members to fulfill our Christian responsibilities in our congregation, community and world. The committee leads service projects such as Quilts of Valor, Habitat for Humanity, Hunger box collections, Seeds meals, Webster Community meals, and Soldier box collections. Support of members of our congregation is demonstrated through the Shepherd program, Senior’s brunch, Parish Nursing program, and the Homebound ministry. Fellowship among our members is strengthened through Sunday morning coffee hours, Easter morning breakfast, and Dinner and Movie events.
The Stewardship committee promotes the expression of Christian faith in daily living, spreads the knowledge of the congregation’s ministries and leads members to higher levels of proportionate giving. The annual Stewardship Appeal provides members with the opportunity to reflect on the gifts received from God and to respond with informed and grateful giving. This committee also leads the Stewardship of Creation program which promotes recycling.

The Worship and Music committee oversees the worship services and music ministries of the congregation. This committee oversees the various choirs, provides appropriate hymnals and devotionals, coordinates the care of the altar paraments and vestments, and trains those interested in participating in the worship service as ushers, acolytes, worship assistants, readers, etc.
