The committee has the following responsibilities: Plan social events for the congregation that facilitates community building and fun. This includes annual or bi-annual events such as church picnics, spaghetti dinners, assisting in the 5K Fun Run; assisting the fundraising committee. There are roles for everyone ranging from event planning, to day of event participation, tickets sales, and more.
Time Commitment: Time commitment is driven by the type of event and role you to which you volunteer.
