The Elders oversee church affairs and are the final
authority within the church. They also guard the Biblical integrity of all who
lead and teach, and are responsible for developing all policies and procedures
regarding membership process, church discipline, Position Papers, and the search
hiring and termination processes for all pastoral staff members. Finally, they
are responsible for guarding the church’s vision.
Contact the Elders
You can contact the Elders if you have personal concerns
about the welfare of the church. Information from you will only be seen by
elders and will be kept in confidence.

Praying for You
The Bible says, “Are any of you sick? You should call for
the elders of the church to come and pray over you” (James 5:14). The elders
would love to pray for you, wherever you may need. This can happen in your
home, nursing home, hospital, or at church. They are also available to bring
you communion. To arrange, please email Kristin,
Director of Care, or give her a
call at (847) 825-5507 x125.
