Church Council

The Church Council at Our Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church is responsible to provide the leadership and support necessary to steer our congregation in a direction that is consistent with established and agreed upon goals and objectives.

The Church Council works as a team, and is comprised of the church officers and the leaders for each church group. The officers of Our Redeemer include the  President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Financial Secretary, and Secretary. Leaders include Christian Education, Deacons, Elders,  Hospitality, Outreach, Stewardship, Trustees and Youth. All receive guidance from the Pastor. 

The Church Council plans, innovates, staffs, organizes and directs the main activities decided upon by the congregation, Periodically the team provides the congregation with feedback on its progress and challenges. Members of the team also handle the day to day financial and maintenance aspects of the church and it's property.

For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.

Romans 12:4-5
