Church Council members serve terms of 3 years as they provide overall directions and evaluations of the church's ministries on the congregation's behalf. Mission teams do the detailed work -- and their functions were reorganized in 2018 to reflect the church's current goals. The council meets monthly, and the mission teams are scheduled to do the same. Each team has a council member as a liaison.
Many initiatives at Faith Lutheran Church start in the mission teams. If you have ideas, please take them to the appropriate mission teams. If you're looking for contacts, please call the church office.
Education Mission Team develops and coordinates an effective teaching ministry that provides study-and-growth opportunities for all of the congregation's members/partners.
The Faith in Action Team deals with matters that include giving and other stewardship, incorporating new members into church life, planning social activities that promote ties for our congregation, and promoting our ministry to the unchurched.
The Youth Advisory Team's goal is to provide a Christian environment where youth can meet and come together to share ideas, emotions, and needs to develop a faithful Christian life. The major focus is on 7th through 12th graders in FLY, Faith Lutheran Youth.
The Memorial Mission Team accepts, manages and disperses designated gifts in accordance with donors' wishes within a list of causes. The team invests donated funds, determines worthy causes, and records donations.
