Committees help to run the operations of NVC and are an important part of our decentralized leadership. They are a great way to get involved in the work and community of NVC, and we encourage our members to join. If you would like to participate in any of the committees below, please send us an email.
This committee is in charge of the weekly worship service. Their goal is to create space for worship that is meaningful, thought-provoking, and uplifting. Utilizing a variety of art forms, diversity of sources and styles, and attention to the liturgical and national calendars, this team helps to make NVC worship a rich experience. Liturgy Committee is led by Elder Andrea Krausse, and meets 3rd Mondays @ 7:30pm.
NVC values hospitality and generosity. This committee creates spaces to be hospitable and generous both inside and outside the community. Generosity Committee is led by Elder Kelsey Unger.
The Justice Committee seeks to connect the NVC community to acts of justice in our local context along with awareness of justice in a global context. Scripture is full of examples of God’s prioritization of care for the oppressed and marginalized, and NVC takes seriously the prophets’ call to do justly. Justice Committee is led by Elder Andrea Krausse, and meets 4th Mondays @ 7:30pm.
This committee keeps the congregation informed about our various activities, from service projects to special worship events and everything in between. The primary way we stay updated is through our newsletter, which the Communication Committee sends out weekly. You can sign up for the newsletter here.

In keeping with decentralized leadership, members of the congregation are nominated each year to join the Deacon and Elder teams. The process of nominating, interviewing, and installing is overseen by this committee.
The Children's Committee is dedicated to creating a safe, nurturing environment for the NVC children to explore what reconciliation means and what participation in a worshiping community looks like. The Children's Committee is led by Elder Nicole Soliven, and meets 4th Wednesdays @ 7:30pm.
