Staff & Council


Who We Are

Our Staff & Council

We are blessed with the basic resource of a successful Church – people giving their time and talent to support the mission and work of the gospel. We are convinced that those who wash dishes serve equally with those who lead worship. There is no task more or less necessary than any other. This point comes home with great conviction when we are making coffee, tea, and cookies; preparing the communion elements; planning children and youth programs; tending to the flower beds; and mowing the lawn.  Those who are eager to grow in Grace know well that getting involved offers opportunity to practice what we preach. If you or someone you know would like to get involved – let us know! We will find a good fit for your talent and your time.

Church Council

Council offers the opportunity to be involved in the ways and means by which our congregational mission is expressed. The process is dynamic and interactive. Ministry teams represent the interests and concerns of the congregation’s diverse membership. Council serves to coordinate the work of the ministry teams to maintain a coherent and focused approach to the furthering of mission goals and objectives. Participation in Council through ministry team work offers an ideal opportunity for growth in Christian faith and character.
