Elder Board members serve for a term of three years. Future Elders are nominated by the current Elders and elected by the congregation. Elders are tasked with the care and nurture of the leadership and church as a whole. Areas of activity and responsibility include:

  • Prayer ministry – Prayer Raid, Sunday mornings before services
  • Communion – preparation and serving first Sunday of each month
  • Care – serving with the Care Ministry Teams in visitation and prayer
  • Membership – review applicants, new membership class, review transfer requests
  • Confirmation Sunday – participate in service of recognition and reception

Leadership Team members oversee the welfare of the church body and staff in terms of Ministry Areas and the business decisions. Members are elected to a two-year term by the congregation, with the option to run for a second two-year term. Contact: Church Chair Bill Phillips or Email Leadership Team as a group
