Committees


We have lots of opportunities for folks who want to pitch in, either for a day or for a longer-term commitment. If you would like to join a committee, be sure to speak with any committee or board member. A list of committee members is posted in the dining hall.

Sign Up for Brunch....
(Brunch and Dinner Days suspended until further notice). Always needed and greatly appreciated. We have a whiteboard for sign-ups, with space for each Sunday except the third Sunday of the month, Dinner Day. You shop for goodies--anything from bagels to something a little heartier. Then, on Sunday, you make coffee, set up the food, and give the financial table folks the receipts. If you need help with the coffee-maker, cleanup or anything else, just let us know! 

Please remember that those who serve the church in a public capacity are kindly asked to dress "business casual" or better--with exceptions as appropriate for heavy kitchen work.
