   Greg Storat - President

    Greg runs the monthly council meeting. He presides over the      congregational budget and general meeting held twice a year. Church council oversees the business side of running the church: finances, budgeting, scheduling, staffing, review of ministry reports and special projects. It is also a great resource for Pastor to consult with in discussion of all other matters involving the church. Council is comprised of members of the congregation, three elected each year to three year terms so there is always a blend of new and experienced members. A council member is always present at Sunday Services in case anyone has a question or concern.
