Meet the Board

Our congregation has a seven member board consisting of six members and a separately elected Treasurer. At their annual retreat the elected Board determines who is to serve as President, Vice President and Secretary based on interests and appropriate skills. The Board of Trustees manages the business affairs of the church, including things like property and administration. Trustees are elected for three year terms.
