One Board Governance – Our Church Council

 The Discipline of the United Methodist Church 2012 (the rule book of the church) describes the purpose of the Church Council on page 178:

The Church Council shall provide for planning and implementing a program of nurture, outreach, witness and resources in the local church. It shall also provide for the administration of its organization and temporal life.  It shall envision, plan, implement, and annually evaluate the mission and ministry of the church.  The Church Council shall be amenable to and function as the administrative agency of the charge conference.

January 2017, FUMC moved toward a ONE BOARD GOVERNANCE which has been approved by the United Methodist Church allowing individuals more time for ministry opportunities and less time in “structured meetings”. ONE BOARD meetings are on the 4th Tuesday of every month from 6-8pm.  Members are invited to attend any meeting expect SPRC related meetings.  During every meeting we hear about how Disciples are being made in and through our Church’s ministries, and from every ministry team and administrative group in the church.

If you have a desire to be involved any ministry area:

Trustee, Caring, Sending, Growing, or Worship

please contact the assigned representative or call/email the church office for more info.

Romans 12:6 (NABRE)

Since we have gifts that differ

according to the grace given to us,

let us exercise them
