About Us

It takes a lot of people to make our Society function. The congregation’s assistance is always needed and members and friends are invited to volunteer at any time for committees and groups by speaking with the committee chairperson or group leader.  Members interested in serving as elected officers or as appointees should speak to the President, the Minister, or a member of the Nominating Committee. Visit our Community page for more information.
