Church Structure

The government of the church is vested in the body of believers, its membership, who is the authority for all decisions, including the responsibility for all designated authorities.

The Church Council is responsible for the management of both the spiritual and temporal affairs of the church, but subject to the authority of the membership. The membership of the Church Council includes all Elders, Deacons, and Committee Heads. Decisions of the Council require the unanimous vote of the Elders and a majority of the Deacons and Committee Heads.

The Elders pay particular attention to the spiritual life of the church, addressing the needs of the church body, and shepherding the church community toward a vital faith. The Elders are expected to use their particular spiritual giftedness toward blessing the church in addressing the needs and the maturing of faith in the church.

Presently the church elders are:
   – Pastor Larry

The Deacons oversee administrative responsibilities and other practical tasks associated with this community of believers.

Presently the deacons are:
   – Suzanne Caro
