Caring for the Church and its Mission

First United Methodist Church – Brighton and Whitmore Lake uses a simplified structure for its governing board, fulfilling the required roles and responsibilities of church council (administrative board), trustees, finance, and staff/pastor-parish relations. This leadership board is elected by members of the church and members serve staggered three-year terms.

The board oversees the mission, vision, and strategic plan of the church. Management and mission teams implement day-to-day activities. Its meetings are open (third Monday of the month at 6 pm).

Congregation members are encouraged to serve on short-term or long-term projects as they are able. See link below for the list of teams and current leader names.
