Education Committee (formerly Spiritual Formation)

Our mission is to support young people as they explore and share God’s love in community by providing opportunities and experiences. Four committee members.

We look for activities in which the youth can participate and contribute, in order to broaden their sense of community. These include UCC’s Synod, Camp Caz, Family Game Nights, Sunday school, fundraisers, and service projects so they see God in every individual, including themselves. Two year term.
