Deacons & Elders

Deacons work in ministry with other church members to show God’s love in the world. Sunday duties include coffee fellowship, communion preparation, ushering and delivering flowers. Ruling Elders are called, elected by the congregation and ordained to serve as leaders on the Session. They are responsible for overseeing all aspects of congregational life and ministry. The pastor of the congregation serves as the Moderator of the Session.
