First Lutheran Church is not a top-down organization. The Congregation Council is the elected leadership team of our community and works alongside the Pastor to sustain and grow our ministry and to serve as examples of Christian faith and life. It is also charged with the care of our institutional resources, such as our building and finances.
The Council meets on the third Tuesday of each month, and all business is conducted in a spirit of prayer, and concludes with sharing Holy Communion. Our leadership team for 2017 is:
- Karin Butterworth, President
- Leanne Ahearn, Vice President
- David Gardner, Secretary
- Bill Cohan, Treasurer
- David Dixon, Financial Secretary
- John Benedict
- Jill Greatrix
- Joanne McMahon
- Gretchen Stott
- Simon Tongo
