Members of Parish Council are elected by the parish at the annual Vestry meeting. On a monthly basis the Council:

  • Reviews monthly financial reports

  • Approves the ongoing development of new programs (Sunday school, adult formation, pastoral care).
  • Assists in setting goals for congregational growth, stewardship, outreach, and spiritual development
