lay people or laity: all members or constituents of a religious organization who are not part of the clergy
Laurel Heights is blessed with wonderful clergy and staff leadership, and we are also richly blessed with lay leaders from within the congregation that guide and organize the church’s work in mission and ministry.
Committee members are elected by members of Laurel Heights at Church Conference, which usually occurs each November.
Ultimately, those who serve on committees within the church are your voice for the direction we take each year. The election of church leaders is an important responsibility both for church members as well as for those elected to serve.
As a church member, you may be asked to serve on a committee. It’s one more opportunity we have to fulfill the promise we made when we joined Laurel Heights to support this church with our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service, and our witness.
The church council shall provide for planning and implementing a program of nurture, outreach, witness, and resources in the local church. It shall also provide for the administration of its organization and temporal life. It shall envision, plan, implement, and annually evaluate the mission and ministry of the church. The church council shall be amenable to and function as the administrative agency of the charge conference. Book of Discipline: ¶ 252.
