Our church council

In our church, the church council is the designated leadership body. Members are ratified by the congregation to serve up to two 3-year terms. Council members meet monthly to oversee, coordinate, and plan the overall ministry of the church. If you have anything you would like to talk about, our council members would be happy to speak with you.
