Building Committee

Our building committee meets once a month to oversee maintainance concerns and renovation projects necessary for our church.  Most recently the building committee oversaw the installation of new carpeting in the sanctuary and the hallway outside the church offices.  The committee is also in the process of installing new baseboards in the lower level Sunday school area of our church.  The committe also recently was involved in a complete renovation of our fellowship hall. 

 

Coal Valley Food Pantry Steering Committee

Our Church is the host church of the Coal Valley Food Pantry.  This is a joint effort of three other Coal Valley churches.  The steering committee is composed of represtentatives from each participating church.  There is also a site manager and an adiministrative manager on the committee.  

The goal of our food pantry is to be sure that there are no hungry people in our community.  The steering committee meets quarterly and oversees the contents of the food orders, and the schedule for volunteers.
