How Are We Governed?
Channing Memorial Church is a democratic society operating under established bylaws. The members determine the budget, call the minister, and elect officers—including the Board of Trustees, which guides the business affairs, administration, and policies of the church.
The church is funded, in large part, by the pledged contributions and fund-raising activities of both members and friend within the congregation.
If you are not a member of Channing yet, you are always welcome to attend and participate in all congregational meetings, discussions and events. Only members have the right to vote, however.
Meetings of the Board of Trustees normally occur on the third Thursday evening of the month and, like most Channing committee and team meetings, are open to any interested person. All are welcome to engage in church activities regardless of membership status.
