Flat Rock AME Church Choir Rehearsal
A WORD FROM
REV.EDWARD J. JOHNSON, JR
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior who is Jesus the Christ! As the pastor of Flat Rock A.M.E. Church, I am pleased to invite you to our church that is truly seeking first the kingdom of God through meaningful worship. We have a growing faith, based upon God works and good deeds.
As the “oldest African American Church” in Fayette County, Flat Rock has a legacy of being the birthplace and genesis of growth and spiritual development. We, the members of Flat Rock, truly believe that we are all called to a greater work in Christ Jesus.
We believe in a sound theology under-girded with effective teaching and preaching, we become more effective in the fundamental principles of excellence in praise, sincere in worship and faithful in our deeds.
We are a church that seeks to serve God through fellowship and a membership representative of all of God’s people regardless of race, or ethnicity. If you are looking for a place to learn and have a better relationship with God, we invite you to visit Flat Rock A.M.E. Church, a “Great rock in a weary land and a shelter in the times of the storms of life”. Stop by the little church on the side of the road.
- Rev. Johnson
We invite you to join us as we worship and fellowship in God's Word every Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday.

TRUSTEE BOARD MEMBERS

Trustee boards are typically in charge of budgetary matters within a church. The board defines a budget and appropriations at the beginning of each year and develops a uniform system to accept offerings and donations, pay bills and make purchases. All revenues and expenditures are documented by the board and evaluated periodically during trustee meetings.
Development of new ministries and outreach programs usually falls to the pastor or other church clergy, although the board of trustees plays an important role in supporting these efforts. For example, if a congregation member is interested in starting a Bible study program, he must first ask the pastor and later, if the program requires financial backing, it may be discussed before the board. To foster a cohesive environment, the board must understand the philosophy and missionary goals of the church.
Another role of the trustee board is to maintain the building and property owned by the church. In many cases, trustee boards make policy decisions regarding whether or not outside organizations may rent and use space within the church. The trustee board may also be tasked with assessing property insurance liability risks and ensuring that the church is in compliance with neighborhood and zoning regulations.
Most church trustee boards appoint officers from within. The highest officer is the president or chairperson, who prepares the agenda and presides over each meeting. In some churches, the president is given the legal authority to enter into contracts on the institution's behalf. The vice president assumes the president's duties in his absence. The secretary provides clerical support and keeps track of meeting minutes, and the treasurer prepares budgetary reports and ensures financial accuracy.
