Much of the work of the church is done by our members, who donate their time and talents for God’s ministry here in Claverack. Most of this work is done through our committees, each with its own mission in the life of our church. Find out more about our committees below:
The Worship committee strives to provide a meaningful worship experience for all, glorifying God and bringing His Word into our midst. To this end, the committee manages all the “behind the scenes details” that go into the planning and preparation of our worship services, including the recruiting of greeters, care and set-up of adornments, arranging for seasonal (i.e. Lent, Advent) needs, and obtaining pulpit supply. In addition, the committee aids the minister and director of music in matters related to the style and practice of our worship services. Email us a request by clicking here.
