Our People - Elders

The Session is the governing body of the local church. It is comprised of "elders" elected by the congregation in three classes of seven for a term of three years and all of the installed members of the pastoral staff. The Session is responsible for all aspects of the mission and government of the local church. Thus, it has many and wide-ranging responsibilities. All church organizations are responsible to the session. A lot of the work of the Session is conducted through its committees which include the areas of: Buildings and Grounds, Youth, Christian Education, Stewardship and Finance, Personnel and Administration, Outreach, Congregational Life, Mission, Service and Grants, and Worship.
