Where would we be without this amazing group at Peoples? They attend to every last detail of all the issues and situations that develop in a church.

Connection Desk (Reception)
Welcome to The Peoples Church. This wonderful team is the first point of contact who welcome you to the church during office hours. They meet you at the reception area and are consistently patient and gracious in providing newcomers and visitors with relevant information for their vast and varied inquiries. The Connection Desk is also the area that receives and directs answers regarding all telephone concerns.
Developing ideas and presenting facts to the congregation in creative ways is the responsibility of the Communications folks. This team prepares various communication media from print to electronic that provide the congregation and interested parties with information on the "happenings" of the church. Newsletters, the web, graphics and the look and feel all come together via this vital link in the Peoples chain.
Finance & Operations
Here lies the pulse of the practical aspects of the church as it works behind the scenes. These folks are the heartbeat of the operation who dot our "i's" and cross our "t's", keeping us on our toes in order to ensure that we are a smooth running ship. This unassuming group, work effortlessly to keep us accountable and excellent stewards of our resources.
This is the beautiful meaning of letting a computer assist us in our work. Our IT Support Team are truly passionate about what they do and they see their work as a means to allowing servants of Christ to further His purpose. They quietly streamline our systems, manage our machines, stomp our "forest fires" and technical dilemmas with grace and joy. We are all made to feel as if the glitch was absolutely nothing and they just wanted to visit our desks to say hi!
