Other Ministry Teams (Thoreau)
The Stewardship Team makes it easy and fun for you to live out your value of generosity at a level that is meaningful to you. They conduct our annual financial canvass of members and friends. This campaign (usually in February) serves as the church’s primary funding source.
The Care Team provides emotional and physical care and assistance for members who are in need of support. They may provide meals for the home-bound or infirm, offer transportation to appointments, and provide support for caregivers.
Training for team members is available through Interfaith Care Partners to ensure that the team is well prepared for their work.
The Healthy Communication Team serves as a sounding board for church members and friends. Members of the team are available along with an open notebook so you can register your comments. The team works with our minister to ensure effective communication among members and leadership. The group also facilitates church meetings using a resolution protocol. We are committed to having an open, honest church where concerns are addressed and compliments are readily shared.
Maintenance Volunteers are folks who have a talent for odd jobs and minor repairs – they help keep our facilities in good working order.
Aesthetics: This team helps select and place art, furnishings and accessories in the sanctuary and fellowship halls.
Art Wall: This team curates an art gallery in the fellowship hall. Contributions from First Church members and friends are welcome. The exhibit is usually displayed for 2 months.
