Our life as a church community is guided by the Session, a council elected by our church members. In the Presbyterian Church, councils are an expression of unity in the church at all levels of church government: the local session, the presbytery and the general assembly. The responsibility of these councils is to nurture, guide, and govern those who witness as part of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) to the end that such witness strengthens the whole church and gives glory to God.

The Session serves as the chief administrative body of the church. Session members oversee and coordinate committees to govern and maintain the church as an organization including the Trustees, Stewardship and Finance, Growth and Outreach, Property, Personnel, and the Nominating committee.

Within the church, the session helps our congregation to be more faithful participants in the mission of Christ. They do so as they

  • Provide that the Word of God may be truly preached and heard, responding to the promise of God’s new creation in Christ, and inviting all people to participate in that new creation;
  • Provide that the Sacraments may be rightly administered and received, welcoming those who are joining in Christ, bearing witness to Christ’s saving death and resurrection, anticipating the heavenly banquet that is to come, and committing itself in the present to solidarity with the marginalized and the hungry; and
  • Nurture a covenant community of disciples of Christ, living in the strength of God’s promise, and giving itself in service to God’s mission.

The Session also serves as the chief administrative body of the church. Session members oversee and coordinate committees to govern and maintain the church as an organization including the Trustees, Stewardship and Finance,  Growth and Outreach, Property, Personnel,  and the Nominating committee.
