And what does the lord require of you but to do justice, AND TO LOVE KINDNESS, AND TO WALK HUMBLY WITH YOUR GOD? ~Micah 6:8

Keep watch over yourselves and over all the flock, of which the holy spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of god that he obtained with the blood of his own son. ~Acts 20:28

Council

Our elders help our church discern and live into the call of God for our community, at this time. One way they do this is by reflecting on the question, "what's happening in our faith community that shows obedience or disobedience to God's vision for us?"

Our deacons equip, mobilize, and encourage our congregation in answering the call to seek justice and mercy for our world. 

The charge to our council members is linked to the button underneath their picture.
