Session - The Ruling Elders of the Church

As a Presbyterian Church, most decisions for the congregation are made by our Session, or governing council. The Session is responsible for oversight of church programs, facilities, staff, and budget. Each person elected to serve on Session is ordained as a Ruling Elder. Elders serve for a 3-year term, and may serve for two consecutive terms before a required break of at least one year. We currently have nine Elders serving on Session. Each Elder also serves as liaison or chair of a committee of the church.

Board of Deacons

Coming out of Acts, chapter 6, the role of Deacon is to be a servant who particularly pays attention to those in need of care and compassion. Deacons are elected and ordained into this servant leadership in rotating 3-year terms. Each Deacon has a group of members they keep in touch with, remembering them especially in times of celebration and times of need. Our Deacons make special efforts to connect with members, family and friends – near and far!
