Church Boards at Cliftondale Congregational Church in Saugus

Saugus Church Boards

An overview of our Church Boards

Cliftondale Congregational Church board members work to oversee the running of the church.

  • Board of Deacons (called Elders in some churches) –Our deacons provide spiritual leadership to the church.  They plan worship events, particularly church ordinances of Communion and Baptism.  They assist the Pastor by enabling his ministry and providing accountability and direction.  They oversee the music, flower, prayer-chain, greeters, fellowship, hospitality and benevolence ministries.
  • Board of Missionary Education—Supports the work of home and world missions by providing financial support to agencies and individual missionaries.  Educates the congregation regarding various missions with literature and monthly “Missions Moments” during the morning worship.  The board also brings in guest speakers and plans special missions events.
  • Board of Trustees—our “fix-it” folks who determine ways to maintain and improve the facility, handle necessary repairs, plan improvements, approves scholarships and works with the Treasurer to ensure bills for services are paid.
  • Board of Finance—Oversees the overall church budget, approves fundraising projects, manages investments, and provides resource management guidance to church boards.
  • Board of Christian Education—Directs the religious training of our children, teens and adults through the ministries of our Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Bible Studies, and teen group.
  • Nominating Committee—Recruits volunteers for church ministries.

You may also occasionally see seminary students working within the church.  We are in partnership with nearby Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary’s Mentored Ministry program where seminarians get valuable practical experience as part of their preparation for ministry.

Joshua 1 | You Can’t Get There From Here

You can't get there from here” - Joshua 1, Pastor Bob Leroe, Cliftondale Congregational Church, Saugus, Massachusetts (10 Jan 2016)

Mainers like to say when giving directions, “You can't get there from here”...or more accurately, “You can't get they-ahh from hee-yahh.” The children of Israel must have thought that, journeying through the wilderness to the promised land. It had been a long, grueling journey. Someone ... Read More
