2023 Leadership Team
Each fall the Lay Leadership and Nominations Committee is responsible for identifying, recommending, and training our leadership team for the coming year. It helps the work of our committee if we know people have a particular interest in certain areas of leadership. Keep in mind that while our Leadership Team consists only of the committee members, the work of those ministry areas takes many more people than those who do the planning and preparation for the area. Some of the committees and areas of ministry in which there is opportunity to serve are:
The Administrative Board– our governing body that approves the work of all committees
The Ministry Council- the chairs of program committees to meet bi-annually to do assessment and visioning work.
The Staff Parish Relations Committee– oversees the church staff
The Board of Trustees– oversees all property and assets
Wesley Gardens Committee– oversees our Retreat Center on Moon River
The Finance Committee– plans our budget and oversees our finances
Endowment Committee– oversees our church endowments and planned giving
Communications Committee– works in internal and external communication
Evangelism/Hospitality– works on our church’s outreach to guests and new members
Worship Committee– helps coordinate our worship (also ushers, greeters, preparing the sanctuary)
Altar Guild– prepares our sanctuary for worship including flower arrangements
Communion Stewards– prepares communion for worship
Prayer Committee– coordinates the prayer ministry of our church
Children’s Ministry Committee– plans children’s ministry (Nursery, Early Childhood, Elementary)
Eli’s Place Committee– oversees our Early Child Development Center
Missions Committee– plans our mission budget and work
Youth Ministry Committee– oversees our youth ministry
Senior Adults Committee– plans and works on our ministry to senior adults
Music Ministry Committee– oversees our music ministry
Office Volunteers Group– fills in for our office staff, helps with large mailings, etc.
As you can see it takes lots of people to plan and implement our ministry. And in addition to the committee members, there are countless places to serve with your time and talent.
