Elders/Deacons

Ruling Elders and Deacons

As a PC (USA) congregation, we have two boards of volunteers that lead and serve our congregation and its ministries.

Elders

The Session is the board of ruling elders ordained to govern the congregation in a variety of areas including finance and property, education, worship, outreach, mission, and fellowship. The board oversees the work of committees and groups, and coordinates the ministries of the congregation. They have the responsibility for receiving new members and authorizing the sacraments of baptism and communion. The elders are elected by the congregation and are ordained by the PC(USA).

Deacons

The Board of Deacons is entrusted with the ministries of care and compassion for the congregation. They provide transportation and meals, send cards of care and joy, and make hospital and home visits as needed. Included in these visits is the offer of bringing the sacrament of Holy Communion. The board maintains a fund to help with emergency needs; this fund is sustained by a monthly offering from the congregation. Deacons are elected by the congregation and are ordained by the PC(USA).
