Saint Paul writes: There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit gives them. There are different ways of serving, but the same Lord is served. There are different abilities to perform service, but the same God gives to everyone ability for particular service. The Spirit’s presence is shown in some way in each person, for the good of all. 

1 Corinthians 12:4-7

What Does The Ministry Board Do?

Peace is lead by a Ministry Board that acts on behalf of the church membership. The Board consists of the Executive Board and additional three elected members and the Pastor.

The ministry and fellowship life of the congregation are directed and overseen by the Ministry Board. There are a variety of  Ministry Teams which are led and staffed by congregation members and report to the Ministry Board, which provides leadership and motivation.

The Ministry Board directs all formal and informal Executive, Ministry and Congregational meetings, as well as correspondence between Peace and LCMC. They are responsible for abiding by and complying with the written constitution and bylaws of Peace Lutheran Church. The Board meets on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at the church. Members of Peace are always welcome to attend.

What does the Executive Board Do?

The Executive Board is elected and is comprised of the President, Vice President and Secretary-Treasurer. The Past President is also a member for six months after their Presidency. The Past President and the Pastor do not have voting privileges. A President is elected each year by the congregation. They act as the Personnel Committee as relates to pastoral issues and staff. They meet on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at the church.
