The Session is the primary decision making body at First Presbyterian. Made up of “elders”, the session is a group of spiritual leaders elected by the congregation. This leadership group works in partnership with the pastoral staff guiding the community to embody our mission and values in every part of who we are as a church.
The Deacons are elected by the congregation and ordained into a ministry of caring, a ministry of love, a minstry of compassion and a ministry of prayer. Currently there are 17 deacons who have been elected and ordained by the congregation to serve rotating three year terms that begin in June each year. Each deacon is assigned to one of the 11 ministry areas: health care ministry, visitation to the homebound, spiritual friends ministry, college ministry, medical equipment, food ministry, bereavement ministry, hospitality ministry, community outreach, prayer ministry, medical needs for school children, care for the homeless and senior concerns.
