Our Church at Work
- Board of Elders
- "The world at its worst, needs the church at its best"
The Board of Elders exists to maintain and further the spiritual welfare
of the congregation. Elders serve as assistants to the Pastors and have
the responsibility of insuring the spiritual care of the congregation
including those who are sick, hospitalized, aged, shut-in, and those who
are in special need. In addition, the Board assists the Pastors in
scheduling and preparing regular and special church services; assists in
the distribution of Communion; supervises the care of the sanctuary,
including the furnishings and vestments; and trains, supervises and staffs
the ushering program.
Meetings are the first Tuesday of the month.

The responsibility of appointing, calling, and employing teachers rests solely with the congregation. The adoption of courses of study, textbooks, etc. is carried out with the approval of the Board of Christian Day School.
