Charlene Janes, Chair of the Worship and the Arts Team
Welcome to Rockville Presbyterian Church. I’m Charlene Janes and currently am serving as Chair of the Worship and the Arts Team. This committee’s main function is involving as many of the congregation as possible to be ushers, decorate the sanctuary according to the seasons, prepare monthly communion and communion for special liturgical occasions, and enlist children to act as acolytes. I am always delighted to find new ideas and traditions from members of the congregation new and old.
Finding connections with all ages of people are important to me. This has inspired me to become involved with the Lord’s Table soup kitchen that RPC mans the first Friday of the month, Women of the Church luncheons, Vacation Bible School, and anywhere I can lend a helping hand. I have volunteered with the Red Cross at Bethesda Naval Medical Center (now Walter Reed Medical Center at Bethesda) for a number of years. Reading is a wonderful escape mechanism for me and I’ve been known to finish off a book a day (mysteries are a specialty). If you want to catch my attention just asks about my grandson and I’ll show you the latest photo!
