Committees and Teams

Session

The minister and our 15 member session work together as a team to provide direction, pastoral care, and general oversight of the congregation’s life. Members of the session (called Elders) are elected by the congregation and are the key decision-makers of the church.

Mission & Outreach

Mission work is the heart of Christian community. Approximately 25% of our budget is directed to local and international mission organizations. A small group of people who have special interests in mission meet monthly to help our church educated about and involved in these ministries. A list of organizations supported by our congregation are listed on the Resources page of our website.
