Church Council

The governing body of Blue Church is the nine member Council.  This group is elected by the congregation and is responsible for congregational oversight. 
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 members serve 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.

Ed pays the church bills, files the monthly, quarterly and year-end tax returns for the church to the local state and federal governments. He creates the church budget and generates the W2's for each employee of St. Paul's.  Other responsibilities include organizing the year end church report and keeping the church books inline to the budget.  Ed says this has been a great learning experience for him.
