Ministry Teams and Committees


LCGS is led by our visionary Church Council, which places strategic planning high on its priorities.  The on-the-ground work is organized into various Ministry Teams and Committees.  Our lay leaders work with our pastor and staff to enhance our service to one another and the world.
Church Council

Our Church Council is made up of a group of dedicated lay leaders and the pastor. Nine members are elected by the congregation and serve alongside our pastor, Treasurer, and Women of the ELCA President. Our Council meets monthly, usually on the 3rd Monday of the month.  Our goal is to empower the Ministry Teams in their work and to serve as the congregation’s Board of Directors. To reach the church council, please send an email to goodshepluth5643@gmail.com – our Administrative Assistant will forward your note. 


Ministry Teams

  • Stewardship/Finance promotes gratitude for all God’s blessings, encourages generous sharing of those gifts, and oversees the wise use of the congregation’s financial resources.
  • Property tends our facility.
  • Worship and Music decorates our worship space, plans special services, and coordinates a host of volunteers.
  • Youth plans and coordinates activities for the middle and high school youth, structured to provide opportunities for broad and meaningful spiritual growth.

Committees

  • Audit Committee reviews our financial records to ensure all safeguards are in place and policies are followed.
  • Mutual Ministry serves as advocates for our pastor and as a resource for building up the Body of Christ within the congregation.
