Lay Leadership

Policy Governance Board

As our primary leadership team, the board works with the pastor and staff to ensure the church carries out its mission and vision responsibly. The board makes policies for the church, ensures alignment of ministry areas with our mission and vision, and provides planning and goal-setting to help the church meet strategic objectives.

Board of Trustees

The board is responsible for oversight of our building and grounds. Members ensure our facility is well maintained, clean, and accessible.

Finance Committee

The committee is responsible for the care of our financial resources. Members coordinate annual fund-raising campaigns and ensure donations are properly recorded and allocated according to the wishes of the giver. The committee also keeps detailed records of UUMC financial transactions and conducts an annual audit of the church’s finances.

Staff-Parish Relations Committee

SPRC is responsible for staffing our church to ensure we can effectively carry out our mission in the community and as a part of the global church. SPRC members support the UUMC staff and provide staff supervision and direction as needed.
