Elders are given authority and responsibility, along with pastors, to oversee the spiritual health of the congregation as well as the congregation’s faithfulness to God’s mission. Those Elders currently called to leadership make up the Session.
Deacons lead ministries that mature fellowship and caregiving within and beyond the congregation. Each of our Deacons has a group of members to befriend and pray for.
