Would you like to help carry out the mission of our church?

Other than Church Council, these are not elected positions, people simply volunteer to be a part of a team when they feel called by God to serve.  The good news is that God usually calls us to tasks that we rather enjoy!

Church Council:

Members of this team are elected to a two-year term at our January Annual Congregational Meeting. The ultimate (earthly!) authority for our congregation is the congregation called together for meetings; however the council makes decisions between those meetings on behalf of the congregation. They oversee the mission of our congregation and provide leadership to make sure we stay in mission together.

2016 Council: Craig Dokken, Chair; George Kolstad, Vice Chair; Judy Renaas, Secretary; Virginia Nienow, Co Treasurer; Aaron Haddorff, Co Treasurer; Members at Large: Andrew Kloster, Diamond Wilson, Lara Hanson, Michael Vogt, Thaly Cavanaugh, Jonahan Putz-Yang, Janell Draper

7 PM the 2nd Monday of the month.
