Elders are charged with the oversight of the life of our congregation – leading, governing, and caring for its members. Both individually and collectively (as the Session), elders provide leadership in worship, teaching, mission, evangelism, care and nurture. Along with the pastors, the elders are the shepherds of the flock.
Deacons are charged with the sympathy, witness and service for all our members. Deacons are persons of spiritual character, honest repute, exemplary lives, brotherly and sisterly love, warm sympathies and sound judgment. Both individually and collectively (as the Diaconate), deacons provide compassionate care for all church members.
