Church Government Overview
The church board, called the Session, is comprised of the pastor and 16 elders. Elders are church members elected by the congregation and ordained for service. The Session oversees the ministry and the programs of the church. It receives new members, provides for worship and sacraments and oversees pastoral care and education programs. It also establishes and monitors the church’s budget and leads the congregation to discover what God wants the church to be doing.
The Board of Deacons
Deacons are church members elected by the congregation and ordained for service. They provide outreach to the needy in our community and in-reach ministry of care and compassion to the congregation. They serve as ushers for worship and memorial services. They coordinate meals, rides, shopping and babysitting for those in need via Operation Care and Operation Ride. They visit shut-ins and administer benevolent funds.
