The Building and Grounds Team meets on the 1st Monday of the odd months at 7:00 pm. This team leads the church in the maintenance of the building, systems (including electrical, heating, mechanical, plumbing), and grounds to ensure the facilities are safe, in good repair, and the grounds are clean and in good appearance. Wayne Bishop (current chair).
The Fellowship Team meets on the first Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm. We plan events to help promote fellowship within the congregation and also reach out to the community through our involvement with the food trucks during the year that are hosted by Calvin Church. We welcome new ideas/activities that we would organize that could help to promote friendship among members and visitors of our church. We also encourage you to join us as you are able to in this mission. Vern Borgman (current chair).
The Mission & Outreach Team meets a few times throughout the year, but mainly communicates by email. This team stimulates, promotes, and advocates for the missional lifestyle of the church body.
The Finance Committee meets primarily in early October to review the proposed budget for the following year. Once agreed upon by committee members, it is presented to Council for their review and approval. Any other meetings that are necessary are scheduled as needed. We try to address some matters via email communication with committee members. Kathy Jansen (current chair).
The Library Team meets every few months to clean out the library that is located in the Fireside Room. They also order and process books occasionally. The library has three sections of books: children's, adult fiction, and adult nonfiction. There are also a few DVDs as well as boxes with small-group study ideas (containing a book, study guide and related video). You can stop in anytime and browse the shelves. Lois Veenstra (current chair)
Hearts & Hands Ministry shows God's love to the Calvin Church family and the community. Baby baskets, get well baskets, sending cards, giving newlywed devotionals, coordinating lunches for Sacred Suds are just a few of the areas the committee is involved in. It is a very rewarding ministry to all who participate in it. If you would like more information or would like to be involved see Maryann Wolffis or Jeanne Maycroft (current co-chairs).
Mission Statement: Hearts & Hands exists to care for one another with kindness, compassion, encouragement and love.
Philosophy: We believe that this ministry is intended to respond to numerous commands in scripture to love one another (John 13:34); serve one another (Galatians 5:13); carry each other's burdens (Galatians 6:2); spur one another on toward love and good deeds (Hebrews 10:24); pray for one another (James 5:16); encourage each other (I Thessalonians 4:18); and to be kind and compassionate to one another (Ephesians 4:32). This caring ministry exists to coordinate efforts to follow these commands and encourage members of the Calvin family to respond to needs and reach out to each other in love.
