  STEVENSVILLE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH
TRUSTEE MINISTRY
2015

The 2015-16 Trustees are co-chaired by Larry Shadle and Larry Klett  

What we do: 

The Trustees are responsible for all of the property owned by the Stevensville United Methodist Church.  This includes the church itself, the land surrounding the church including the pond, a parsonage for our pastor and a second home that has been used for a second pastor and is currently used for income.  Everything from the roofs that cover our heads to the floors that we walk on is the responsibility of the Trustees.   Our recent accomplishments include repaving our parking lot, constructing a Church Memorial Garden, evaluating and altering our church cleaning procedure, and, of course, the normal day to day maintenance required with any large building.  Trustees also sponsor workdays where the members of our congregation may have the opportunity to participate in the cleaning and maintaining work.

Fix it Request:

The Trustees cannot always see everything that needs their attention in our church and a "Fix it Request" form is used.  This form notifies the Trustees of areas that need attention - a burned out light bulb or a dripping faucet for example.  The forms are normally available on the Trustee bulletin board.  Here is a link to the FIX IT REQUEST form if one is not available.  Place the form in the Trustee's mailbox or e-mail:

Larry Shadle lshad-home@yahoo.com or Larry Klett  lrklett@aol.com concerning the problem. 

Church Volunteers:

 The scope of the Trustee work is large and many people have volunteered to help the Trustees through their 2012 Service Commitment form.  Click on this link Trustee Volunteers to see the list of those volunteers.  If you would like to help, simply e-mail Larry Shadle 

lshad-home@yahoo.com or Larry Klett lrklett@aol.com and we will gladly add you to the list. 

 The Trustees are in need of volunteers for shoveling sidewalks in the cold weather and mowing our church lawn in the warm weather.  We have the snow blowers, shovels and riding tractors.  We just need operators.  Call Larry Klett  429 - 3698  or Larry Shadle 429-8276 if you can help.  We will post the schedule of sidewalk shovelers and lawn mowers on the Trustee bulletin board.

Building Use and Fees:

Stevensville United Methodist church is used for many things in addition to Sunday worship.  Because of increasing costs for maintenance, repair, cleaning etc. the Trustees have implemented a rental policy and fee schedule for building use.  At the present time, this schedule is being revised and the rentals are handled by the church office. 

Church Van Use:

Stevensville United Methodist church has a 15 passenger Ford Van used to transport church sponsored groups to and from events.  The van's use is scheduled through the church office.  Please read the van use policy before requesting use of the van and always complete the trip log located within the van.  Click here to see the van's availability.

Wish List: 

The Trustees also maintain a list of things that need attention (usually improvements) that are too large to be included in our regular budget.  Often members of our congregation feel the need to help with some of these improvements.  Click Trustee Project Link to view these items.  If you wish to donate towards a specific project, please contact our Church Finance Administrator.
