The session consists of the Pastor and members of the church who are elected by the congregation and ordained as Elders. Session is responsible for the governance of the church and for keeping us focused on our mission. It is the duty of the Elders, individually and jointly, to strengthen and nurture the faith of the congregation committed to their charge.

Board of Deacons

Members of the Board of Deacons are elected by the congregation and ordained. They minister to those in need, the sick, the friendless, and to anyone who may be in distress both within and beyond the community of faith. The Deacons host the coffee fellowship after the worship service, as well as our annual Thanksgiving Dinner in collaboration with other church committees.
