Administrative Committees
The Church Council is composed of committee chairpersons (Finance, Staff-Parish Relations, and Trustees), lay leaders, the lay member of annual conference, the church treasurer, the president of the United Methodist Women, the Director of Christian Education, the Coordinator of Lay Ministry and the Pastor.  This group is responsible for making decisions about church policies and programs and communicating and discussing these decisions with the congregation.
The Finance Committee is currently responsible for coordinating our annual financial pledge campaign and broadening the church’s vision of stewardship, recommending our annual budget to the congregation and Church Council, and with the assistance of our treasurer, keeping track of the church’s financial situation.
The Staff-Parish Relations Committee works with the church’s paid staff and the District Superintendent to insure effective leadership for the congregation, including recruiting and hiring when necessary.
The Trustees are responsible for both real estate and invested property and attend to the upkeep of both the church building and the parsonage.
