An effective committee builds a strong positive relationship between staff and congregation so that the congregation makes disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. This committee will work with the lead pastor and other staff to fulfill legal and ethical responsibilities related to staff.
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
Effective trustees will function as Christian stewards of property God has entrusted to the congregation. This includes supervising and maintaining both the physical property of the congregation and gifts made to the congregation so that the ministries of the congregation can be effective and all legal requirements related to the property are satisfied.
Pastor Jen Savoy
My name is Jennifer Savoy and I have four children, ages 17-24. We moved to Contoocook from Weare and are loving living in this small town. I graduated in May of 2021 from Boston University School of Theology. I am excited to see where Contoocook UMC is serving in the community and the world.
I have a background of serving in youth ministry, having been Superintendent of Sunday School, VBS director, Youth Group leader and Nursery Coordinator in my home church. I also serve on the Program Committee at Wanakee United Methodist Center and volunteer there for a week each summer. I am looking forward to seeing how CUMC's youth ministry will grow as we begin to see the pandemic fade away. I look forward to meeting more of the church family, as well as getting to know the members of the community.
Please feel free to come say hi!
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Jen Savoy
