Newton CRC Council
Newton CRC has a Council comprised of Elders, Deacons, and the Pastor. Typically,
we have four Elders and four Deacons. The Council meets every month to discuss the
work of the Elders, Deacons, and Pastor, and to discuss how to promote the vision and
ministry of the church.
The Elders have oversight of the doctrine and life of the members of the congregation,
exercise admonition and discipline, provide pastoral care, promote the work of
evangelism, and defend the faith. The term of an Elder is typically three years, but may
vary. You will find the names of our current elders listed in the bulletin.
The Deacons administer mercy; stimulate the members to faithful and obedient
stewardship; collect, administer and distribute monies; and serve the congregation with
counsel and assistance. The term of a Deacon is typically three years, but may vary.
