elder team

The FMC Elder Team is comprised of faithful, dedicated men who love and care for the Fellowship Family. They support and encourage our church family and nurture the staff. As part of each Sunday morning they pray with and for our people, offering encouragement and guidance. They are also involved in the spiritual and physical well-being of the FMC Body throughout the week.

Here are the profiles of the Elders who are seeking your affirmation.

What's the difference between a governing Elder and a shepherding Elder?

The Elders are charged with the spiritual and financial health of the church. They continually and intentionally cover the church and its attenders in prayer and are available for support and guidance.

Governing Elders sit on the board and are involved in the process of evaluation, discussion, and voting on key issues of these areas.

Shepherding Elders continue in their commitment to the spiritual health of the church but do not participate in voting.

2022-2023

church budget

As we enter into a new ministry and fiscal year for Fellowship, there’s no denying that it’s been a long period of change. Through it all, we have experienced God’s presence and guidance, His direction and provision, and we praise Him for His faithfulness.

After prayer and planning, the FMC leadership presents a budget for 2022-23 that represents a $423,098.14 decrease over the past year’s budget.

Thank you for standing with us in this new season and for the part you play in Fellowship’s mission and desire to have impact for God’s Kingdom.
