Our Elders
  • The body of elders is called the Session.
  • Elders serve as leaders in the government and discipline of our church as well as having responsibilities for the life of the Church at large.
  • It is the duty of elders, individually and jointly, to strengthen and nurture the faith and life of our congregation.
  • Those duties which all Christians are bound to perform by the law of love are especially incumbent upon elders because of their calling to office and are to be fulfilled by them as official responsibilities.
  • Our elders serve on ministry teams and administrative committees within the church including worship, education, mission, finance, and human resources. These groups typically meet on the second Monday of each month, Kirk Night. The fourth Monday, our Session meets to conduct church business.
