Elders of session
The elected Body of Elders oversee a number of critical church functions. Among the formal ministries are adult discipleship, building and grounds, children's discipleship, youth discipleship, mission beyond, worship and music, evangelism and church growth, long range planning, and finance and stewardship. (The Finance Committee oversees the financial aspects of the various ministries, which benefit our congregants and the greater community and missions. The Stewardship Committee develops annual programs to encourage faithful pledging in support of our ministries.)

Our ministry is to those who are in need, to the sick, to the friendless, and to any who may be in distress. We strive to meet the needs of those around us.
