In the Lutheran Church, the Church Council is the group of lay members elected by their fellow parishioners to serve with the  Pastor as the leadership and governing body of the Church.
Through monthly and other special meetings, the Pastor and Church Council are responsible to set and oversee the vision of  ministry for the Church, and to conduct the business of the Church as required by Canon or civil law. All committees, commissions, or other church groups and their ministries come under the oversight of the Church Council.
Church Council members are expected to....

Attend regularly scheduled meetings of the Church Council (the 3rd Wednesday of every month)

Pray daily for the church and its ministry

Support and encourage the Pastor and Staff

Maintain responsible communication (which excludes gossip or hearsay) with the congregation

Participate in special events and gatherings of the parish as best as possible

Serve on one of the committees of the Church Council

Be a pledging member of the parish

As much as possible, be a visible participant in regular worship of the parish
