The Council is the governing body of Winnetka Congregational Church. As WCC is a community church, the church is governed entirely by the congregation through the Council. The Council has general authority and responsibility to plan, coordinate, and manage the entire operation of the Church including communications, property management, fiduciary duties and Ministry Group operation.
The Council is composed of 4 officers and 10 councilors. Members are recruited from the congregation by a nominating committee and approved by the congregation at the Annual Meeting. Officers and councilors serve terms of two years and may serve three terms.
You can see a full list of Councilors and Committee Chairs here.
Members can access Council Minutes after registering as a MEMBER.
