The governing body of First Community Church is committed to the Christian tradition with a vision for the future and the ability to lead with innovative ideas.

The Governing Board is designed to provide efficient, effective management with responsibility to the congregation to develop and establish policy decisions necessary to maintain the Church as a dynamic force in the lives of the people and the communities it serves.

Community Meeting Announcement

The Governing Board held three Community Meetings Please focused on proposed constitutional revisions, including potential improvements to the nominating committee process.

The governing board has spent time at each of our meetings this year to review our current constitution, especially around our current nominating process. Through these board discussions and work of our task-force (Catherine Adams, Joe Bull and Rebecca Wolf) we have been asking three questions:

  1. Is the language in the constitution clear and consistent?
  2. Does the constitution reflect the values of First Community?
  3. Does the constitution align with our strategic plan?

Once the board has affirmed a final revision, it will be presented to the congregation in preparation of the Annual Meeting where there will be a congregational vote. Questions? Email Alice Finley, FC Board Chair -

The redlined version of the constitution with proposed changes can be accessed HERE. You can watch the Zoom Community Meeting HERE.
