Board of Trustees 

 
Mission Statement
 

The mission of the Trustees is to supervise and care for all of the property and equipment belonging to the church in order to enable the ministries of the congregation to be as effective as possible in their respective missions.

 
Role in the Life of the Church

The Trustees enable and enhance church life and mission by ensuring that the facilities are maintained and protected. This includes overseeing and managing maintenance and improvements  to the property and ensuring that protection systems and insurance are in place. Additionally, the Trustees engage in legal matters, evaluate/approve church use requests and receive and administer gifts and bequests. 

If you think of the church as a tree, we are a lot like the roots of the tree, often unseen but providing stability, structure and vital resources so that our church may grow and bear fruit.


Objectives
 

Our objective is to act in accordance with the objectives of the church body and its ministries.   We strive to have trustee members with diverse backgrounds and abilities so that we may act in the broad interest of our church. We seek to have a representative involved every major ministry and committee in order to establish an involved relationship and so that we may be guided by faith and understanding in our decision making. We educate and involve the congregation in the use and care of the facility and often bring people together in work-related fellowship to create a sense of fulfillment, ownership and pride. 


Current Needs

We recognize that every individual has God given abilities and we are always looking for individuals who wish to serve. Leading or supporting volunteer service projects is a great way to give thanks to God and to help the church. The volunteer work you do is very valuable and allows the church to direct funding toward mission rather than to repairs.  In the near future, we hope to have a listing of service projects on the web site so that people can see what work has been accomplished and what still needs to be done. People could sign up as “captain” or “crew” to accomplish fulfilling projects in fun and fellowship.
