The Parish Education Committee is responsible for overseeing Sunday School and Vacation Bible School instruction for school-aged students in the parish. The head of the Parish Ed Committee works closely with the Parish Education Coordinator and Pastor Stuart to plan and staff the program for the year. We also have an active church library, so the Parish Ed Committee works with the church librarian to discuss resources and other needs to continue providing books and DVDs for checkout to our parishioners. The Parish Ed Committee also encourages expanding learning opportunities within the church, such as a youth group or additional adult or family ministry events.
