The church council has general oversight of the life and activities of this congregation.   They meet once a month to set goals and priorities for our church.  They lead this congregation in living its mission, to do long-range planning, to set goals and priorities, to evaluate activities in light of its missions and goals, review finances,  upkeep of the church building, and watchfulness over our church members and attenders.  To help care for our church family, it is divided alphabetically by last names into groups or flocks with an elder and deacon responsible for each group. (At this time, we are in the process of replacing a couple of the deacons who are no longer with us for one reason or another.) Our groups are:
