Get Involved with Spiritual Oversight
The First Parish By-Laws define two committees that are required to address and sustain the spiritual needs of the church. The committees work closely with the pastors to ensure that the spiritual life of the church is healthy and vibrant, and that there is a means for good communication between the pastors and the congregation. Committee members must be church members.
Board of Deacons
The chair of the Board of Deacons is an officer of the church. The Board of Deacons has at least ten members, one-third of which are replaced yearly by election at the Annual Meeting.
If you are interested in a future position as a Deacon, contact the Council or any Deacon through the church office at 846-3773.
Pastoral Relations Committee
The committee has four members, one appointed by the Board of Trustees from its members, one by the Board of Deacons from its members, one by the Senior Pastor, and one by the Associate Pastor. The terms of office are open-ended, with the goal of creating a stable and compatible group.
If you are interested in a future position on the Pastoral Relations Committee, contact the pastors through the church office at 846-3773.
