Council

Grace Church is led by the council, a group of elders and deacons elected from the congregation. Elders are responsible for encouraging spiritual health at Grace Church;  deacons are responsible for encouraging works of mercy at Grace Church.

 

 

Committees

 

The congregation is served by a number of standing committees that report to the church council.   Each committee is chartered by the council with a specific set of responsibilities, has a Council liaison, and is given an annual budget.  Committee members are members of the congregation and serve as volunteers.  If you wish to serve on a committee, contact the Pastor or chair of the committee.

“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is Christ.  From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”    (Ephesians 4:5-16)
