2022 Church Officers


Our congregation elects 15 Ruling Elders (in three rotating classes) to form a partnership with our Teaching Elder (Pastor). Together they form the Session, which provides the people of God with vision, direction, and provision for their ministry within and beyond the gathered congregation.  The session meets monthly for stated meetings of worship and work, while individual elders exercise ongoing leadership in their respective committee and workgroup assignments.

    Our congregation elects 12 Trustees (in three rotating classes) to serve as stewards of the congregation’s facility and resources, ensuring that a church building intended for worship, education, and fellowship works for the congregation and not against it.  Trustees coordinate with staff members in overseeing all levels of maintenance.  They also provide leadership to the congregation in the form of long-range facility, capital campaign, and resource management planning.  While not ordained like Elders and Deacons, the role of the Trustees is vital to the congregation’s ministry and mission.
