The Administrative Council is the governing body of FUMCA.  Its members are composed of the chairpersons of the various committees and organizations within the church, as well as the Senior Pastor, Lay Leader, and Associate Lay Leader.  The Administrative Council meets quarterly on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm in the Small Dining Room.  Everyone is invited to attend.

Family Committee

The Family Committee plans activities that bring the families of our church together for food, fun, and entertainment. 

Finance Committee
