Our Council

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

Our elders oversee the doctrine and life of our church community; they provide counsel and care, participate in and promote evangelism, and defend the faith. As shepherds of the church, our elders encourage and support members in their Christian life. 


Our deacons represent and administer the mercy of Christ to all people. They lead our church community in being faithful stewards of our time, talents, and resources. They also work alongside our Neighborhood Connections and Justice&Mercy teams to encourage participation in structures and ministries of mercy, justice, and reconciliation, both locally and globally.
