Made up of member-elected Elders, the Session is our church's governing body which oversees business and financial affairs and concerns.  Elders are the spiritual leaders of the church and oversee the various committees of the church, including Administrative, Christian Education, Membership, Mission/Outreach, Nominating, Personnel, and Worship. 

The Deacons serve as the shepherds of the congregation, providing compassionate care to their flocks.  Their goal is to help the congregation communicate and connect - - to each other, to our community, and to God.
