If you've ever considered serving on Council but would rather not chair a committe, the Secretary position could be an ideal fit. As with any of our other Ministries, you should always feel free to seek out the current Secretary if you have questions.
The RUC Council Secretary's projects are ongoing throughout the year. There is no associated committee, but the Secretary is responsible for taking minutes at all Council and Congregational meetings.
The Secretary also works with the Membership Committee to record new information to the Church membership rolls (births, deaths, new members, etc.) This information is then shared with the National Capital Presbytery and the Potomac Association.
If you have a passion for organizing a turn as Council Secretary may be for you!
