The Spiritual Oversight Committee
in conjunction with the Minister, provides leadership in the care and oversight of the spiritual life and interests of the Congregation, including all aspects of worship. It is composed of Elders elected by the Congregation. The job of an Elder is to help meet the spiritual needs of the members of the congregation. The church families are divided into geographical districts. Each Elder cares for and acts as liaison between the Minister and the people of his/her district. The Elders also serve on a variety of Ministry Teams, which coordinate much of this essential work. See listing of teams below.
