Governance

Consistent with our seven principles, the Fellowship is organized democratically. The congregation, by majority vote, has final authority for running the Fellowship, including policies for operation, the raising and allocation of funds and the selection of ministers.

 The Governing Board articulates the Fellowship’s vision through its governing policies (see link below) and monitors the work of the Executive Team, known as the X-Team. The X-Team includes the Senior Minister, Business Administrator and Associate Minister. The X-Team makes the decisions about how things happen here and the operation policies.

Minutes of our Board meetings are available for review by members upon request and also available on the bulletin board in the Fellowship lobby.  Please contact the Fellowship office for more information.

Meetings occur on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. The Governing Board wants to hear from you. We are setting aside five minutes at the beginning of every Board meeting for a “time for congregants” to come and speak to the Board on any topic they wish. Please restrict your comments to five minutes as we will need to move on with the rest of the Board meeting. We look forward to hearing from you!
