About Our Committees...
A few important details should be mentioned here. While we want people to know what committees exist within our church and who leads them, it is not part of our practice to disclose private information such as addresses and phone numbers without prior permission from that person. If you have a question for one of our committees but do not have the contact information for the chair of that committee, we would be glad to put them into contact with you. But to protect our members, we will not be making their contact information public. Members of Driftwood Christian Church can likely find the contact information they need in the church's annual report or church directory. Thank you for your understanding.
Chaired by Jean Hansome The Benevolence Committee provides aid to our sick and shut-ins. They also assist in whatever capacity they can to comfort and help the bereaved, often by providing the funeral dinner if requested. They also make mention to the board of those in the community who are in need of special assistance. They also deliver meals to attending church families with newborns and those who recently had major surgeries. If you have questions concerning any of these things, please contact the Benevolence Committee or the church office.
Chaired by Laura Fleetwood The Education Committee works to develop a program of religious education for the entire church body (all ages) in keeping with general objectives of Christian Education.
