Church Officers


Presbyterian congregations elect people of wisdom, maturity of faith, demonstrated leadership skills and compassionate spirit to serve as ruling elders. Ruling elders are so named not because they “lord it over” the congregation (Matthew 20:25), but because they are chosen by the congregation to discern and measure its fidelity to the Word of God, and to strengthen and nurture its faith and life. Ruling elders, together with teaching elders (pastors), exercise leadership, government, spiritual discernment, and discipline and have responsibilities for the life of a congregation as well as the whole church. These elected elders form a body called the Session. Our Session welcomes your comments and questions. Please email them  .

Deacons are the hands and heart of grace at FPC. They care for members in need, visit the sick and homebound, provide emergency assistance, and support the congregation in caring for one another both in and outside the church. The ministry of a deacon is one of compassion, witness, and service.
