Committees and boards of the church are formed under the direction of the Session and are: the gospel for the salvation of humankind; shelter, nurture, and the spiritual fellowship of the children of God; maintenance of divine worship; preservation of the truth; promotion of social righteousness and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world. (Great Ends of the Church, F-1.0304, Book of Order, PCUSA). A task force is a temporary, short-term group formed to accomplish a specific task.
COMMITTEES AND BOARDS
Task forces are pop-up committees designed to handle a particular event or topic. Task forces are not regular committees, but assemble, organize and execute their effort as needed. For example, an a/v task force may be called on to review and purchase upgrades to church computers or line up a/v worship leaders. Another example might be the yard work crew, bakers for a reception, cleaning the church building in the spring and fall. Since task forces are temporary, simply watch church notices for a chance to help out or contact the Church Office at (515) 225-2254.
