The Zion Lutheran Church Council consists of the “Executive Committee” made up of the President, Vice President, Treasurer, and Secretary.  The remaining positions of the Church Council are varying numbers of At-Large positions which are determined by a formula which is based on the average annual attendance of Zion Lutheran Church’s congregation at our Sunday services.  The At Large positions exist to maintain an odd number of council members which ensure a fair voting of 2/3 majority. Council members serve one-year terms and may be re-elected for up to three consecutive terms. After taking a year off a church member is eligible for re-election for another cycle of terms. We currently have two congregational meetings per year. One in January where the church council nominating committee is formed and a second meeting in the middle of the year where the candidates for church council are brought to the congregation for a vote. 
The Church Council is responsible for:
  1.  Financial Responsibilities to include:
    • Monitoring financial information and approving expenses
    • Overseeing the payment of monthly church bill payments
    • Proposing an annual budget to the congregation for approval
  2.  Communication Responsibilities to include:
    • Keeping open communication with the Church Pastor concerning any issues which may arise
    • Maintaining an ongoing communication with the members of the congregation via Zion’s Newsletters
  3.  Supervising responsibilities to include:
    • Monitoring and advising committees and outreach programs
    • Provide assistance to those committees as necessary
    • Receiving updates from ministries
