Committees and Groups

Each of our committees, groups, and associations have a faith-based purpose.

Committees

  • Christian Education
    Through sharing stories and music based on the Bible, we share teachings of Jesus Christ, which results in children and teenagers who are motivated to explore their faith on their own and to apply it throughout their lifetime.
  • Finance
    The Financial Committee provides Consistory with advice and recommendations on all fiscal matters, including investment strategies, operating budgets, and payment of bills. By aligning these recommendations with the spiritual priorities of the church, this committee supports the mission of OZUCC.
  • Membership
    Through outreach to the community and sharing of our mission, we will work with the OZUCC congregation and pastor to grow our membership to 150 active members, with special emphasis on younger membership, within the next 3 years.
  • Outlook
    Through many church events including breakfasts, the cookie walk, candy sales, church picnics, and anniversary celebrations, this committee creates opportunities for the congregation and community to experience fellowship in alignment with the teachings of Jesus Christ.
  • Personnel
    The Personnel Committee is responsible for nominations of elders and deacons and job descriptions, evaluation, and ongoing feedback to employees of OZUCC, which includes the Pastor. Through this, the committee plays a critical role in supporting the spiritual growth of the congregation.
  • Property
    The faith-based purpose of the Property Committee is to maintain a historically beautiful church for worship where we are able to experience and share the loving presence of God as a congregation and community.  All property and equipment of OZUCC is maintained for an affordable price.
