Deacons & Elders

The Session consists of the pastor, the associate pastor, and the elders in active service. Each class of elders consists of eight members elected by the congregation to serve three-year terms. These terms are staggered so that nine elders retire from the Session each year, and nine newly-elected elders join the Session each year. The Session meets on a monthly basis to carry out its responsibilities for the mission and government of the church. The Clerk of the Session is Gayle Knight.
