  5. The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;

In Service to our Church

As Assistant Moderator, I have the distinct honor to report to you about the activities and work of the church’s elected trustees. This year, we welcome Steve W. and Sandy F. back to our board. Happily, Wayne B. agreed to continue on for a second term. So the Board for 2017 — 2018 is composed thusly:
Tim S., Moderator
Fern C., Asst Moderator
Steve W., Secretary
Len R., Treasurer
Anne A., Trustee
Wayne B., Trustee
Sandy F., Trustee
Jesse R., Trustee
Your Board of Trustees meets each month on the first Sunday of the month after the regular church service and fellowship time.

This past fall, the current Board focused on the searches for a Minister and a Religious Exploration Coordinator. We continue to monitor the fiscal health of the church, and look for ways to support the various groups who provide the programs and worship services. Each trustee serves as a contact with different parts of the church community.

As the board planned how to connect with the various groups we have, it became clear that we are involved in many things! Our Restoration Community is amazing. We have groups like the Board that are mandated in our By-Laws and then we have lots of additional groups that maintain our programs and actions.

Take a look at this list. I am eager to know if I have missed any other groups or activities that are currently in operation. Contact if this is the case.
