15Board of Trustees
The Trustees serve as the official, legal servants in matters of business. They are the signatory group for signing legal documents on behalf of the church, particularly as property and financial contracts are involved. The Trustees, serving as custodians of the church property, provide supervision, oversight and care of all real property and equipment acquired directly by the local church. And the Trustees also act on behalf of the church in selling and acquiring property.
 
The Trustees meet on the first Thursday of each month. Email to the Trustees should be sent to trustees@lansdaleumc.org.

A continual function of the Board of Trustees is to monitor the church security and the safety of its community, and be proactive in their protection.  In order to mitigate a security concern, some exterior doors have been fitted with electronic locks that have card access control and others have been rekeyed. For more information, see Facility Access.  To request an Access Key, click on Facility Access Key Request above.
The Trustees have developed a Facilities Use Policy (Rev. 1.0) which is now in effect. Included is the Facilities Use Request Form which will be required to be completed for all facility usage requests submitted to the Trustees. Click here to download a copy.
