Witness Committee

The witness ministries of the church shall give attention to developing and strengthening evangelistic efforts of sharing of personal and congregational stories of Christian experience, faith, and service; communications; Lay Servant Ministries; and other means that give expressions of witness for Jesus Christ. (para. 252.2.c The Book of Discipline 2016)

What the Outreach Committee does in meeting the physical needs of the congregation and community, the Witness Committee does for their spiritual needs. The Witness Committee works to take the message of Jesus Christ to the community through our members and unique activities. There are many residents in Vandalia and the surrounding area who do not need financial assistance; and yet, they do not have a living relationship with Jesus Christ. Helping our membership grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ should assist them in taking the message of Jesus Christ to the world. The best way for any individual to witness of Jesus Christ is to learn to tell his/her story.
