Administrative Committees

Board of Trustees​​
The Board of Trustees ensure a safe and comfortable environment for worship and church activities to occur. Board members serve a 3-year term. Members need to be able to attend a majority of the monthly meetings where most decisions are discussed and voted on. Members are encouraged to volunteer their time to lead projects, review documentation to support Trustee decisions, and save the church contractor expenses by accomplishing tasks utilizing talents within the church community.

The Board of Trustees is responsible for the church facilities and parsonage, which includes making decision about such things such as: the roof, the air conditioning systems, grounds maintenance, snow removal, painting , the kitchen, the carpeting and tile throughout the building, the windows, the hot water heaters, water purity, computer connectivity, security within the church (cameras and nightly lockup), insurance coverage for the church, maintenance of the parking lot, replacement of furniture, etc.
