Congregation Council

Major decisions like calling a pastor and approving the church’s annual budget are made by the membership in a democratic fashion. The congregation also elects a total of eight council officers for the purpose of making lesser decisions on behalf of the membership. The Congregation Council also appoints a Financial Secretary and Treasurer.

How is the council elected?

The council is a group of representatives elected by the congregation. Each year, an election is held to choose the council. The council members are nominated by the congregation. If a nominee accepts the nomination, they can be elected to council.

When does the council meet?

The council meets on the second Monday of each month. Each meeting is held at 6:30 PM at the church.

Church Budget

Each December at a congregational meeting, the budget for the upcoming year is approved by a vote of the congregation.  Per a previous decision from council, the church’s budget is posted publicly to our website for members to access.  You can read that here.
