It takes many leaders to be self-governing and to accomplish our Mission!
Church officers and the Board of Trustees are elected annually by the members. The Board of Trustees has fiduciary responsibility between annual meetings and also focuses on long range planning. A second governing body, the Parish Council, is comprised of chairs from a number of central committees, which carry out the activities of the church. Both the Board and Parish Council meet monthly. In addition, our leaders include the chairs and leaders of Board-appointed committees and task forces, other small committees and task forces, and small group leaders. These various groups may meet independently or with the Parish Council.
