Who we are...
The Board of Elders are responsible for the general and specific spiritual welfare of the individual and corporate membership of the congregation.
It shall consist of a chairman and at least two members having the necessary qualifications for the office (1 Tim 3:8-11, Acts 6:3).
The Board of Elders are elected by the congregation to a three year term. Board members are elected in two's, meaning that at any given election year we will have at least two open positions.
What we do...
Members of this Board individually and collectively, by work and action, shall encourage their Pastor in his work. They shall regularly pray for Pastor and other spiritual leaders. They shall concern themselves with members attendance for worship and keep records of attendance at Holy Communion. Review whether newborn children have been baptized. Reach out to those in need of spiritual guidance.
Roles and Responsibilities...
The Board of Elders includes up to four women appointed by the Elders and Pastor to fulfill the role as Lay Deaconess.
The Lay Deaconess helps the Elders and Pastor care for the congregation.
Sometimes it is easier to reach out to the Lay Deaconess to get help with more personal and family needs. Contact her if you need a few meals after an illness or after childbirth and she will get you in contact with the LWMl. Would you like a virtual visit for a family member in the hospital? or need someone to pray with? She is available by phone or on Zoom. If you are having family issues we can put you in contact with christian counselors. Are you struggling or out of work? Do you need help to cover an emergency? Your church family is here to help you.
