In the Church, we believe there is a priesthood of all believers. Every Church member, every believer in Christ, is called to serve.  Each of us is given spiritual gifts to be used to edify the Body of Christ, in service to the Church and the world.  All of us have a ministry to do. We will be glad to help you identify yours if you don’t know yet what it might be. And if you want to serve in a ministry, we can also train you for it. The Body of Christ, the Church, needs you.

Church Council
The Church Council is the governing board of the Church. The Congregational meeting elects Council members and entrusts regular financial and business management to the Council.  In between Congregational meetings, the Council carries out the will of the body in the daily governance of the Church.  The Council establishes various members as liaisons to the committees of the Church. 

Church Staff
The Church staff is here to serve. From the church secretary to custodian to choir directors, the goal is service to the Church. Staff members welcome your comments, questions, and encouragement.
