Governance

Everyone’s voice counts in the governing of FCC Hanover!  FCC Hanover is a congregation led church.  Important decisions, including the calling of the pastor and the annual budget, are made by a vote of the congregation. A Church Cabinet, consisting of the church officers, the pastor and the chairs of Leadershipthe various committees of the church, meets quarterly to discuss topics of interest and concern, and to make recommendations to the congregation.

Each January the congregation gathers for our annual meeting to review the reports from the previous year and set the program and budget for the coming year.

Officers, Boards and Committee lay people are elected at the annual meeting to make decisions on most matters of daily business on behalf of the congregation. The Constitution and By-laws delineates what issues must be determined by the entire congregation and what can be decided by the various boards and committees. Special meetings of the congregation can be called during the year if there is reason to do so.

Boards and Committees meet as needed, many monthly, to conduct the affairs of their particular area of ministry.
