Our Committees

Our Committees and Boards

Our church has seven very active committees, and three boards.  The distinction includes that the boards are required and defined by our by-laws, with specific duties and membership term limits.  Our committees do not have term limits and include membership of active regular attenders to our congregation who may or may not be formal members of our church.  Pastor Bob Ripley is a permanent member of our Elder Board and an ex officio member of all other boards and committees.
