Session

Our Session

Our Church is governed by a Session of Elders who are elected by the congregation as men recognized to be gifted by the Holy Spirit to be Christ’s undershepherds in teaching, guarding, and ruling over his flock in love.  The Teaching Elders (Pastors) along with the Ruling Elders provide spiritual oversight and counsel to the members of the church.  To learn more about what it means to be a Presbyterian, please visit Our Beliefs page.
