The Worship and Music Council
provides input and guidance to the Pastor concerning the content
of worship services and Sunday bulletins. It also administers the
projection of worship aids and announcements as well as audio and video
recordings. The Council provides oversight for the music program and its
staff. It maintains job descriptions and contracts for the staff. It
also administers two music scholarship funds. The Council has a budget
which includes items for Pulpit Supply, Worship Support (communion
supplies, candles, etc.), Vocal and Handbell Choir Music, Music
Equipment & Supplies and Flowers. The Council has a liaison to the
Flower Committee and offers help when needed. The Council also oversees
the teams of ushers and greeters. The Council brings its recommendations
and ideas to the Consistory. Worship & Music Council meetings are always
